Question about 1989 Honda Accord 4 Door
My 89 accord/4cyl.f.i. has almost 300k miles and its been running funny lately.at lower rpm range it spits&sputters like a couple plug wires are crossed,but when you stomp the gas or get above like,50mph,there is no noticable miss.now,it does need plugs&wires,so,it may have a misfire.exhaust system appears to be original and quite worn,so,if it turns out to be an ignition issue,im still curious as how to diagnose the catylitic convertor.will it just shut down,?will it smell like egg farts,?will it catch on fire?thanks to anyone with info
Gotta love those Hondas, 300k and still going. I would say you are on track as faar as needing wires and plugs, also bare in mind you do have a few miles and there is going to be some wear and loss of compression which eaquals loss of power. Try adding some Restore to your engine oil after a few times using it there is a noticable difference. You can get it at any parts store and even WalMart It comes in a silver can with black letters.
As far as your cat, The best way to check it is by using a vacuum gauge, However if you don"t have one, yes the cat will glow a bright orange and also does give off a rotten egg smell.
