My 1991 Accord's hood doesn't seem to be closing all the way. It has about a 1/2 inch of play. Is there a way to adjust this?

The upper piece of the hood latch is a "U". Make sure it is aligned with the bottom "HOOK" and is not bent or moved. The bottom is held to the radiator surround with three bolts. Take the bolts loose and move the "HOOK" mechanism up so it will latch. Usually you should look at the paint and not stray too far from the "FACTORY" location.
If you make it latch, but have moved out of the proper position you may find you can not GET THE HOOD OPEN! Also check the cable to make sure it is operating properly. Have some one move it while you are looking at it. You can also add some grease or even engine oil from the dipstick if it is HANGING UP.
Do not drive if the second latch is not going to operate (lift up on the hood and see if it stops from going UP).

Let's look at your slave cylinder and your master cylinder.
Under the hood of your car are two master cylinders, and physically, they are close together.
They are found right in front of you as you drive the car, except they are under the hood and about chest high.
My 1990 has them right along side one another.
The brake master cylinder reservoir is about 4 inches in diameter, the clutch master cylinder reservoir is about 3 inches in diameter. Both of them take quality brake fluid.
Sounds like your clutch master cylinder is dry of brake fluid.
It would be nice if all you had to do was to add brake fluid to the "fill" line, but then you'd have air in that system, and it would need to be "bled" to work.
If you do find the brake fluid low, very likely the slave cylinder needs replacement, as your car is the right age to need this.
Be blessed.

My daughter had the timing belt break on my 1991 Honda Accord while driving on the freeway. What is the probability of valve damage? Should I just junk this car?


its hard to tell, sometimes they would..... but easy to check before hand, take the valve cover off and check valve clearance as if you were going to adjust the valves, if any valves have way too much clearance the valve is bent.. The valve spec is on a decal under the hood.

1991 mighty max, 5 speed manual ... when going up a hill, motor seems to race as if clutch is slipping, only symptom, no noise, no smell. once truck has been run, does not do this .... truck has 94,000...


if it has a cable for clutch you need to adjust it. if its hydralic then the master cylinder may be not bleeding off properly when cold or slave sticks when cold. you need to measure pedal free play that is how far pedal goes down before resistance is felt there needs to be 1/2 to 1 inch or so free play to make sure that the release bearing isnt riding on the pressure plate [would be the same as riding the clutch] the 1/2 inch higher than brake pedal probem can be adjusted on the pedal stop but shouldnt be the problem. of course the clutch could be just plain worn out to.

Timing belt broke on my 1992 Honda Accord LX


You just have to try it. The best thing to do is try adjusting the valves. The settings are under the hood. They valves should be pretty close to what the clearances should be. If any are WAY LOOSE you may have a bent valve. If they seem OK, replace the belt. Be sure to replace the balancer belt also.

Will not go into gear(manual)


Pretty good chance it's the clutch but check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder for leaks (also line between). A drastic change often is caused by failure of either component...generally if clutch fails, it is a gradual process (similar to how a brake pad wears)
