Question about 1992 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Honda said I have a little play in right upper control arm

Honda said there is a little play in the right upper control arm
on my 2003 Accord V6 (85,000 miles). when they did my oil change.
I have noticed the ride is getting hard. Use to be a nice ride when
my mother bought it new.
having a hard ride lately, no suspension work has been done,
and there were a lot of huge potholes this past winter here.
part is about $200 and labor is $300 per dealer.
Is this reasonable, should I do right and left at the same time?
I just got new tires, new pads & rotors, trans flush, car is in very good
shape otherwise.
Thanks.

Replaced all struts and upper control arms and 2001 accord is still making thumping noise whenn going over bumps


Sounds like your ball joints may be worn. You can check them yourself or have someone check them for you. If you elect to check yourself you may want to search youtube for a video. Basically you are supporting the vehicle and letting the suspension hang and lifting up on the wheels with a long bar while watching or play in the ball joint.

Upper front right ball joint


STOP!!! That ball joint comes in the arm assy. If you remove it, it will damage the thin arm and then you have safety concerns because the new one, although you may get it in there, will likely pop out later. If you're on a tight budget, buy a complete used arm from a local dismantler. Otherwise buy a new complete upper arm.

Honda Accord check engine flashes when tapping brakes


Engine light flashing along with the drop on RPMs is indicative of misfires. Connect a scan tool and see if any codes are stored this may give you a starting point. As for the clicking I'm not sure that it is related to the engine light but clicking when braking may be due to worn suspension/steering parts such as control arm bushings

I have a 92 accord LX. I am in need of changing the Right upper control arm. I am not sure how to go about this. Any information would be much appreciated.


Replacing the upper control arm is an easy job, you will need to remove the front wheel, open the hood, you will remove the nut on the balljoint for the upper control arm to spindle, then use a fork and hammer to sperate the two. the next step is to remove the two achor nut in the engine compartment on the strut tower area. and out comes the control arm. you will need to have an alignment done after this job to align the front end. heres a diagram to help you locate the balljoint nut and the achor nut. hope this is helpful.10_22_2011_11_10_13_pm.gif

I dont know how to put the trunk struts in my trunk for my 1992 honda accord ex. there 2 bars that cross but when i put them in it dosent hold the runk up. any help?


SO, YOU REPLACED THE REAR STRUTS ON A 92 ACCORD, AND THE TRUNK (REAR) OF THE VEHICLE IS STILL SAGGING? DID YOU REMOVE THE UPPER CONTROL ARM/ BALL JOINT ASSY.? DID YOU ADD THE COIL SPRING ASSY. TO THE STRUT? IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO THE FIRST, THEN YOU MAY HAVE THE CONTROL ARMS ON THE WRONG SIDE RESPECTIVELY RH OR LH, OR YOU HAVE INSTALLED THE UPPER CONTROL ARM UPSIDE DOWN ( THE ARCH OF THE ARM IS TO BE UP). HARD TO HELP WITHOUT MORE INFO.... M.GOOD
