Question about 1993 Honda Accord
Which engine,there are many , state displacement and cylinder count.
DID YOU OVERHEAT IT?
this is covered in the FSM, get one.
or use Alldata.com
lots of steps.
well over 100..... counting adjustements, etc.....
i guess you never done a head job before?
do not just replace it. (gasket) check for head AND engine
deck warpage. ( a $2 tool , )
here is my wild guess,
Except Accord V-6 The cylinder head temperature must be below 100F (38C); allow the engine to cool several hours if the car has been recently driven. Turn the crankshaft pulley so that the number one piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.
Remove the cylinder head gasket and clean the mating surfaces.
(do not use wire brush or metal scrapers on alum, heads)
use a plastic scraper.
then check for warping, (ask)
If applicable, remove the intake and exhaust manifolds from the cylinder head. (lol, is listed last, gotta love non FSM real online data)
i post this to dissuade you, its not complete.
there are many factors,checks and issues, TTY, and others.....
graphics missing above, head sequence rules. on and off !
if the head was overheated, you need to get it pressure tested
and warp checked.
the top to reasons for new gaskets , put on to fail in first 10k milles
is , not warp checked, pressure checked)
or 2: surfaces were not good. (might need to be milled a tad)
3: not using new head bolts, some are TTY and if not ,should not be used 3 times.
