You will have to look for aftermarket parts. Use your brain and get creative. The exhaust is better done by the professionals. You're looking at about $300 for the whole exhaust from the exhaust manifold or headers to the muffler. The pipe might have to ordered or they will bend one to fit the car. You'll get new catalytic converter(s), and the muffler you can pick from an endless choice. Go to Advanceautoparts in person and see what they have and how you can use it. If you can weld or know some one who can you can probably save money on the exhaust by getting parts from Advance. As for the rear brakes here are the cylinders. For the fuel filler neck get an aftermarket one that will fit or you can make fit by modifying it. You can use tin snips to remove the old one. And fuel resistant epoxy to install the new one.

Where abouts do you live?

The exhaust parts can be made, or obtained from an exhaust shop.

The brake calipers can normally be ordered from an auto parts store. Why do the calipers need to be replaced? Could you just rebuild the ones that are on the car already? You might just need to fit new seals.

85 HONDA ACCORD WONT STAY RUNNING UNLESS PUMPING GAS NOT EVEN FULL THROTLE


You have a single fuel injector in it right. Try right at the end of the gas pedal cable at the engine there is an electrical plug and a little device that goes around in a circle when the gas is mashed. That is the throttle position sensor. Try unplugging that and if there is no difference in the revving then the throttle position sensor is out. If that is not the problem, then plug your engine into a an onboard diagnostic reader. 85 is an obd1.

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!!

1994 Honda Accord, 276,000 miles-keep or buy newer?


Congratulations are in first order for maintaining a vehicle to run well that long.

Your dilemma can be decided by the following factors:
1) parts can become scarce for older car models,
2) increased need for service during normal use
3) fuel efficiency/power for newer car models have improved
and 4) Hondas are not specifically known for their longevity.

The newer compact sedans have increased cabin space, that you may find comparable to the your Accord's. Your dilemma is between cost-efficiency and sentimental value, and this is really up to you whether you purchase a new sedan or maintain the current one.

Hope this helps.

Anti theft light blinking on stock radio in 92 honda accord


You must go through your local honda dealer, (usually parts department) give them the numbers off the labels on the radio, along with the VIN number of the car. may have to prove ownership. They can call Honda and get that information for you. Process is alot easier if you someone that works in the parts department, if not the honda parts department, then another parts department at another car dealer.
