Question about 1990 Honda Accord

2 Answers

My timing belt and water pump for Honda Accord 1990 was replaced and used the car for 2- 3 weeks. After driving about 15 minutes, entering the freeway, my car slowed down but the engine still running. Whenever I tried to put it on drive, it died. After 15 minutes It will crank and engine run and then died. When it was brought home, I tried to drive it to the shop which is about 1/4 of a mile from home. It cranked and the engine run and was able to move it about 3 houses and died and the engine never run anymore. I asked the shop about its probable problem and he said it's the distributor. When I was shopping for distributor in the dealership, the mechanic said it might be ignition or the timing belt might have slipped. What could be the possible problem?

If you have never changed that distributor on your 1990 Accord, I would suspect it. Check for spark while cranking. The sensors inside the distributor would usually heat up, after 15-20 minutes of running, and would then die out, until the car is cooled off for a while. Look into that distributor.

What else needs to be changed when doing a timing belt on a 1999 honda accord? and about how much should it cost?


Technically, nothing else needs to be changed when replacing a timing belt, however it is recommended or suggested to replace the timing belt tensioner and water pump while doing the belt. These items are only accessable when doing a timing belt. The cost should be under $100.00

WHEN DOES THE TIMING BELT FOR A 2004 HONDA ACCORD GET REPLACED?


It depends on the engine. The 4 cylinder engine uses a timing chain, and is generally replaced every 150,000 miles (Honda doesn't give a specific interval) with the water pump (driven off of the timing chain) and timing gears. On the V6 engine, you have a regular rubber/steel belt, and it is supposed to be replaced every 105,000 miles, according to Honda. The water pump is driven off the belt as well, and should be inspected or replaced. (I recommend replacing the water pump anyway, just to save yourself any future trouble)

other than the timing belt being broken, it sounds like the crank sensor in the distributor. get a used distributor. but first pop cap off and see if it is turning with engine.
