Did the timing belt break? Or did it over heat? ethere way you will need to do a valve job on the cylinder head, but before you do that, do a wet cylinder compression test, shoot some oil in the cylinder's then do a compression test, if compression goes way up, then you have bad piston rings and the engine will have to be overhaul or replace.

Low overall compression in 1996 honda accord 4cyl 129.75 psi avg.


the compression pressures are on the low side. The indications are worn rings as the pressure readings come up when the ring seal is improved with the addition of oil. The bores will be worn in a taper and if the head was to come of there would be a noticeable lip where the top ring stops in the cylinder
rings and cylinders wear equally but rings suffer from a loss of tension, and an increased ring gap that allows more compression to escape to the sump
Do you need to do something about it--
if there is an oil consumption problem( smokey) then yes
If the economy is acceptable to you then --no --not immediately
What should you consider in making a decision----
1. good engines are available from japanese spares ( imported engines with less than 30.000klms on the engine for a fair price
2. consider what is termed a "short motor" which is the block,crank, pistons ,rings,oil pump and sump all new
What you should not consider is a quickie fix--set of rings and nothing else as this will cost you more in the long run.

Cranks won't start


First you must check to see if engine is mechanical sound by performing a compression test. remove the spark plugs install a compression gauge in the spark plug hole and crank engine about 4 cycles compare readings to all cylinders reading should be around 125-150 psi readings in the 50 psi range possible jumped or broken timing belt. If engine is mechanically sound test for spark at the spark plugs use a spark plug laid against valve cover and have some one crank it over look for the spark to jump the gap. A no spark problem is internal in the distributor.

I have 60 psi of compression on one cylinder in a 1997 Honda accord 4 cylinder what can I expect?


Usually the easiest way to tell is to remove the spark plug of the cylinder in question, put a few ounces of motor oil in the cylinder thru the spark plug hole, insert compression tool and crank over a few then reset compression tool and test. If compression rises then the issue is related to the rings being damaged and the engine will have to be tore down fully to repair. If the oil doesnt make much of a difference then the problem is probably a leaking valve or valve related issue. If you have the knowledge you can inject compressed air with that cylinder and see if you hear air hissing through the intake manafold or exhause manafold as that would support issue being with valves.
Hope this helps

2003 V6 Accord engine failed


If the cam jumped a few teeth the pistons would likely hit the valves. You could have holes in 4and 5 pistons or broken rings

does the engine start? if it does'nt your valve timing may be out, you need to correct it, because what is most likely happening is the valves are open when they should be closed.....hope this helps.....cheers

MY CAR VIBRATES ROUGHLY SITTING STILL AND I WANT TO KNOW IF IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PISTONS.


Sound like a cylinder miss, the only way to know for sure if it's a piston, is to do a cylinder compression test, should all read about 125 psi or more, or it could also be a bad motor mount.If cylinder compression check out good, could need just a tune up, as far as the engine if compression good engine is good, also check injector's

Security system/battery


plz check the following and update me
1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)
