Question about 2004 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Engine light is on in my 2004 Accord LX

How do I do my own diagnostics test to find out what the issue is. I know I need a new drive belt and just ordered one today but I was told that the belt wouldn't make the light come on. Any suggestions?

I just had my car repaired. The check engine light stayed on. This sometimes can be solved after you open and replace the gas tank cover. It could take a day or two to go off. However, if it stays on then it is a problem with the sensor. I had to replace mine after it went off and on for a couple of months then stayed on all the time. My mechanic who I very much trust put it on his computer diagnois whatever you call it and he told me to wait until it stayed on all the time to replace the senor which bought be a few months of not having to spend a couple hundred dollars to replace.

Check the vacuum lines to make sure none of them are off and check the one behind the throttle body and also check out the EGR valve if there is an Autozone around you somewhere they will put it on a tester and test it for free for you.

There is no magic fix button. You will need to perform standard diagnostics on the ignition system and the fuel system in order to establish the source of your issue.

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving


A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.

How do I loosen the tensioner to replace the serpentine belt on a 2004 Honda Accord?


First, note how the drive belt is routed, then use a wrench on the tensioner pulley center bolt and turn the tensioner clockwise (four cylinder engine) or counterclockwise (six cylinder engine) to release the drive belt tension. Remove the drive belt from the tensioner and relax the tensioner. Fit the new belt on the other pulleys, then turn the tensioner again and fit the new belt over the tensioner.

The picture is from a different model, but it is similar to what you are working with.

I am purchasing a 1991 Honda Accord EX with 60,000 miles. The engine mounts need replaced to fix a vibration at stop lights. Any other issues that I should look at fixing as part of PM?


Yes, I always do the same thing when I buy a new vehicle that way I keep track of it and know exactly when it was done. first buy a new air filter, new fuel filter, new spark plugs, and maybe plug wires. check all belts and hoses. and change oil and filter. these things will pay for themselves. have fun. Wow a 91' with only 60,000 miles that's amazing. I've got 178,000 on my 93' accord lx and it's still running perfect!!

Timing belt on Accord 2004 v6 models


2003 and up Honda Accord with 4 cylinder engines do indeed have a chain and the V6 has a belt which must be replaced at 110,000 miles. Why? Ask Honda, they designed the engines.

'91 Honda Accord LX transmission light on.


You say "standard transmission?" Do you mean "standard" as in "manual/5 spd./'stick-shift'?" transmission?

Either way, if you replaced the alternator belt and the battery light went away and the car doesn't sputter or stop, then it's the "speed sensor" on the transmission itself. The car will still drive, but the speedometer cannot read how fast the car is going (in RPM's as well).

Honda's have very detailed diagnostic info that can be read by connecting the plug behind your dashboard to a diagnostic machine.

getting this done at a proper garage/auto electrician will give you the exact problem and save you from buying the wrong parts to fix it again.
