Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 94 accord needs a lot of work. My family has had it for 8 years and has put over 120,000 miles on it. The current odometer reading is 195,000 miles. It has never had major engine work (believe it or not). I have taken it to three mechanics that have given me different but overlaping lists of maintence needs. The concesus list is below. What is the order in which these fixes need to be done. I can't afford them all at the same time. I am already replacing another car, so buying a replacement for the accord is not an option. 1. replace Timing belt, water pump, associated seals and belts. 2. replace Oil pan and valve cover gaskets. 3. battery service 4. New ball bushing (?) the current ones have lost the rubber boots and are dry and worn out. 5. Four new struts all around 6 Replace craked radiator (small crack) 7, Replace the rack & pinion system. I have already had a brake job and replcaed a broken CV axle-immediate safety needs.

I would recommend at least 1, 3, and 4 right away. Then 7, 2, 5. before these repairs are done, go to an auto store and get some radiator stop leak. If the crack is small enough it will at least slow the leak so that way you can get more life out of it. but if you choose to go for a while without replacing the rack and pinion, you may want to drive as little as possible, and when you do drive, drive very easily so as not to exert excess wear on the worn systems.

2003. 2wheel dr 150 p.u. I. Put smaller tire on because back problems getting in .now at 60 mph dash odometer reads 69 mph . Is there something I can do . So odometer would be correct.


there are different speedo gears in the transmission available that will allow for some ratio changes in the diff so check with a dealer spares to see if any are available for your vehicle
when you say smaller tire , is it a smaller diameter rim that was fitted
if that is the case by fitting a larger tire case may get back closer to the correct reading
by that I mean for example a 195 25 r14 case can be replaced by a 195 95 r14 case as the difference is in the 25 to 95 measurement
the 25 measurement makes for the rim almost touching the ground where the 95 dimension stands the rim well up off the road and because of that the distance covered in 1 revolution is far different to the distance covered in 1 revolution by the 25 size tire
that solution may put the car back too high for your back problem so if the gears replacement is not possible , then a last solution may be to find an instrument repair shop and have the gauge re- calibrated to the correct reading according to the speedo gears in the transmission
if it is auto with a VSS unit that signals the speedo there may be changes in that area that are possible

How do I go about manually resetting the maintenance required light on my 2.4L 1992 Mitsubishi Mighty Max pickup truck?


When service to the emission control system has been completed slide the switch to the opposite position, turning off the warning light.
If the service was for the 120,000 mile interval remove the warning light bulb.

CAUTION: If the speedometer is to be replaced set the odometer to the same reading as the odometer being removed. (consult your local motor vehicle laws)

Will experienced Honda owners share best practices with a young family driving a 2004 Accord?


Tire-Go by the label on the door jam on the driver's door
Oil-Follow the manufacturer's recommendation in the owner's manual
Maintenance-Today's cars usually come with a maintenance schedule. Follow the proper maintenance for the mileage your car currently has on it.
If that puppy has only 45,000 miles on it, the timing chain shouldn't have to be replaced until it's between 120,000 and 150,000 miles.

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).

What mileage or duration should I change the transmission oil of my 1999 Honda accord (HONDA ACCORD 1999)


My Accord V6 '99 has over 215,000. You can use synthetic transmission oil if its zr1 compatible. I change mine every 60,000 or so. Its 3 qts for the v6. The nissan maximas are the ones that have transmissions that generally dont last past 120,000 miles. Why do you still see many 98 and 99 accords still on the road Carlos?
If yours went at 70,000 than you need to buy a haynes manual and keep up with the maintenance on your car. By the way. Honda Accords are notorious for running fine after 200,000 miles. The parts are easy access and if you use a cheap obd2 scanner you can zero in on any problem with the car.

You will need to pull the speedometer out and have the odometer (u call mileage counter) repaired, the little drive gear that comes off the speedometer to operate the odometer has failed or broken.

Odometer indicator not working for buick century custom 2001 about 1 week ago, in the middle of a trip, my odometer stopped reading miles. the push button where u can reset your trip miles is not counting...


OdometerGears.com has the gears for you to repair the odometer. If the odometer and the tripometer are stacked you will need and E20= 20 tooth gear and a 16 tooth medium pod. If the odometer and tripometer are split left to right you will need 2 drive and 2 worm gears. Give them a call and they will offer you a discount for the four gears. The total for two gears is $54.00 and for the four gears is $89.00 both prices include the shipping.
