Question about 1993 Honda Accord

1993 Honda Accord V6 Sedan - Leaks fluids

Ok...I recently bought a 93 Accord with over 250,000 miles. Obviously used. Driver"s side window needs a new motor, passenger side front door needs a new door handle (we open the door from the outside) and the driver's rear door doesn't open from the inside either. But those problems I can deal with. The one that is driving me crazy is the engine. I have cracked a seal on the head gasket twice in the last 3 months. Which caused water to get into the oil. 7 qts of chocolate milk came out of the car when we drained the oil (its only supposed to hold 4 qt). It was gross. But my concern is that we keep adding water (that's all we are using at present - not antifreeze at this point with a freshly sealed gasket) and it keeps "disappearing" somewhere. At the time we weren't finding any leaks. Now I have a leak - like a running faucet - as soon as we add water to the radiator it is spewing out onto the ground. What needs replaced to make it stop guzzling water every five minutes. Literally - because that is how long it takes me to get to work before I need to add more water to the radiator. I have replaced the top radiator hose and there is another little hose I have replaced. (I live in AZ in that makes a difference.) Thanks for the help!

Hey try checking you radiator plugs (2) at the bottom right corner make sure its not stripped. Also if the radiator in plastic on the top and very bottom but iron or aluminum in the middle you will have to check really careful where the plastic and aluminum join together could hair a hairline crack but once you start the car and it get hot and pressurize then its runs out fast. Hope this helps I have a 93 accord also..for 12 years now and still doing well..Ed

03 honda accord v6 shifting problems

Sounds like it could be the ECU (electronic control unit); easy to change. I have bought used ones a lot cheaper than new ones and work fine. Your year may be located under the glove box to the right behind panel (my older car was passenger side under the mat). They are easy to change out regardless of location.

1999 Accord Coupe V6 A/T Prolem

That transaxle has long been a problem for Honda & they have NEVER really properly engineered it to be free of defects Unfortunately. I had a similar problem at around 66,000 miles with my V6 Accord EXL Coupe & at that time Honda did the right thing and repaired the transmission but made me pay for the labor (a fair yet semi-expensive) fix but reasonable. Then more recently around 152,400 miles the transmission failed again & began slipping. I had asked for Honda to do another fix of the transmission & I pay for the labor BUT they refused. I find it sad when a major company does not stand behind a product they know has had defects & issues throughout the entire product line of the V6 Accord & Odyssey (which use the same transaxle) & instead states from the warranty booklet (which I understand but think a Honda vehicle should last for several hundred thousand miles) especially when the owner followed & follows all of the recommended preventative maintenance in the service handbook from Honda...especially when the car looks like it is brand new & now it has a New Transmission thanks to Honda corporate :)

I have a 93 accord and when i go to stop the brake gose to the floor,just put new pad on didnt fix help

First bleed system and check for leaks. Pay attention to the area below the master cyl where it attaches to the brake booster. If it's wet there the master is obviously bad. It does not need to leak to fail though as they can internally bypass which will give you the exact symptom you reported.
