SOURCE: replacement a speed sensor for a honda accord 1995 Problems

Is this a wheel speed sensor for an ABS system? or a Vehicle Speed Sensor? I will assume it is a VSS for right now
the VSS is located on the transmission, you will need to remove the intake to see it more clearly but here is a picture that shows the unit and its components http://econtent.autozone.com:24991/znetrgs/repair_guide_content/en_us/images/0900c152/80/05/f9/9e/small/0900c1528005f99e.jpg

SOURCE: 180,000 mile maintenance for 98 honda accord

First off, I think your mechanic is trying to give his family a very happy holidays at your expense...no offense, but $1800 is WAY HIGH!

As with any schedued maintenance/tune-up, you should have your oil and oil filter changed, your air filter changed, new plugs and wires (depending on how long it's been since you've last changed them), a radiator flush/refill, a thermostat if desired (you may decide that you don't necessarily need a new one on these, but I usually include this when performing a tune-up), if your Accord is an automatic, then you'll want to have your transmission flushed and your tramsmission filter replaced (manual transmissions only need to have the level of the gear oil checked), all of your grease fittings on your suspension should be lubed (make sure to have your suspension inspected for any excessive wear or movement/"play" while this is being done), and yes, it might not be a bad idea to have the timing belt inspected and changed if necessary. Brakes and rotors should be inspected foe excessive wear and brake fluid should be checked and topped-off if necessary. Chances are, your battery is probably fine, but if it is more than a couple of years old and you live in an area that gets cold in the winter time, it would probably be a good idea to have a "load test" done on it to make sure that you have plenty of CCA (cold cranking amps) to start your car in the cold so you don't get stranded somewhere. Also, have inspect your wiper blades and top-off wiper fluid.

Other than that, there isn't really much more to it. The parts, filters, and oil for a tune-up of this nature should be less than $200, if acquired at your local parts store--possibly even less than that if were to go with store-brand parts and oil--that's if you want to do the work yourself. However, at a repair/tune-up shop, you have to worry about them marking up the price on their parts sometimes up to 200%. Then, you have to worry about how much labor charges they're going to throw at you. In addition, many mechanics will make it a point to find, or even create (believe it or not!) other issues and try to add those repairs to an invoice that you only intended on being scheduled maintenance. On occasion, you'll be able to find a shop that will install parts that a customer brings in, but most will not because they aren't able to make their "mark-up" on parts that a customer provides. But, if you do find a shop that will install parts that you provide, many times they will not warranty their work on parts from an outside source.

In any case, I would strongly suggest that you take your Honda to another shop or two to try to get a more reasonable estimate. You may be astonished at the difference you'll see in pricing, especially if you throw in that you know what all is involved with the work being performed (as much of it is merely "inspecting" the condition of pre-existing parts), and that you have a good idea on how much the parts should cost. To be quite honest with you, any honest and reputable mechanic will beat the $1800 estimate that your original mechanic quoted you. I promise you this.

I hope this helps and perhaps you'll be able to save $1000 or more to spend elsewhere this holiday season. Have a nice day!

SOURCE: power window on a 97 honda accord wont go up

possibly your power window regulator is out. basically check the fuses first to make sure you have not blown that, if it is good, then you can order a new window regulator from the dealer or online @ autopartswarehouse.com. to replace the window regulator you will need to will need to remove the door panel, start with the screws on the handle and the arm rest, covered with a plastic cap. the door panel which can be pryed from the bottom with a flat blade screw driver or flat pry bar, it will make a snapping sound. three bolts on the regulator 4 bolts on the window tracks and 2 bolts securing the window, re assemble as you have taken apart, Good Luck!!

po128 cooling system preformance, this can be caused by a bad thermostat or fan relay, if the fans are staying on to long and last a bad coolant temp sensor, this car uses two coolant temp sensors, the best way would be with a scan tool to watch the sensor values and see if there are ok, this being a 2009 honda with 32,000 miles , this type of problem is not seen to often. check connections to sensors and make sure wiring is ok,

1992 Honda accord. Runs fine for a little while 5 to 10 miles, the check engine light comes on and car dies. turn it off let it sit, it starts back up and goes some more. The longer you let it sit the...


Replace the pgmfi relay (main relay), it's up under the drivers side dash and has "mitsuba" written on the side. They were a common problem, relatively cheap and really just maintenance after this long. If that doesn't solve your problem, you'll need a new distributor.

I have a 1997 honda accord the odometer has stopped working it just turned over to 139999 it is stuck between the next number140000.What do I have to do?


the 10,000 gear has worn out. Even if you could somehow "jog" the odometer
to the next number, it would likely
encounter the same problem trying to transition from 149999 to 150000.

Your option is replacement, or do what 99.999% of car owners do when the Odometer quits - ignore it.
Or set the trip odometer to zero, and never touch it again - thereby you can calculate the
total mileage by adding the trip odometer value to 140000.

Knowing the current odometer mileage is valuable for a Honda Accord owner with 140K miles, since
you want to keep up the regular maintenance intervals for your car - if you do, you 97 Accord
will likely travel past the 200K miles mark, and eventually approach 250K miles (like my Accord).

Most Hondas and modern car fans can and do run at will. 215 on a scan tool is just reading the sensor and variation is ok. A temp gun is more accurate. Ill bet your gage is still normal. I have a honda and the fan runs at times when I get out. Normal

1991 HONDA ACCORD 178000 MILES RUNS GREAT LOOKS GOOD. wILL NOT COME OUT OF SPORTS MODE AND CHECK ENGIEN LIGHT WILL NOT GO OFF.. CAN YOU HELP


maybe computer under the passenger side floor board. If the sport light is flashing, then it could be the speed sensor. This link can show you how to check the check engine light on this car: http://troublecodes.net/honda/ You need to find the blue plug and insert a jumper wire, then you need to count the blinks in the led lights, and then compare it to the trouble codes. Carefully pay attention to the blinks, some will be short and others long. Long I think are 10s and shorts are ones. Once you get the code, then scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the OBD1 codes, that is the one you need. Hope this helps somebody.
