Question about 1998 Honda Accord

Set timing on a 1998 accord 3.0 V6?

Hi I have a problem with the motor. It idles and runs smooth. The problem is when I put it in gear and drive and press on the gas it has a noticable rattle. I checked under the car ex...all the exhaust shields,lines,any thing that could be loose. Some one told me the timing might be off. Can you give me any info to further my search for the problem

    for a while i have had the same problem but never thought much of it. Then one day it felt like my transmission was slipping I had it towed but the mechanic could not find anything wrong with it and it ran fine for him. The same day i picked it up I was driving when the lights dimmed and the dash showed all doors and trunk were open but no check engine light.

Before messing with the timing, get your alternator checked out. Supplying the ECU in a V6 Accord (98-02) can cause some of the same problems you've described above. I had some of the same stuff happen in my 2000 EX V6 and it turned out to be an alt/batt combination. I replaced both and had none of the problems (transmission or otherwise) that I experienced.

    Edit from original post...

    sentence 2 should read, "Supplying the ECU in a V6 Accord (98-02) with too little juice can cause some of the same problems you've described above.

  • does the engine miss? bumps is a rythmic pattern?
  • an engine miss will appear to diminish at higher rpm due to centrifical force.
  • other possible problem broken or flat motor mount.
  • is the idle rough in reverse?
  • if not
  • open hood
  • start engine
  • Left foot on brake (hard)
  • start engine
  • watch engine as you select drive
  • still holding brake with left foot / throttle gas with right foot
  • does engine dramatically move?
  • if so replace motor mount on offending side
  • if not possible engine miss or transmission problems

Engine runs smooth at idle vibrates when you put in gear and gets worse when ac turns on goes away when you raise the idle a little drives fine already had motor mounts checked


That sort of misfire is typical of ignition problems. Start by checking the condition of the plugs, then the wires, then rotor, and finally the distributor cap. Have in mind that a particularly black, oily spark plug doesnt necessarily means that it is shot, but also it could mean that the cable leading to it, or the corresponding contact at the distributor cap is not doing its job.

Dies when shifted into gear


May be having problems with engine vacuum leaking. Pull the large hose going to the vacuum operated brake booster and block off the hose end with a cork or other plug. Start the engine and see if it runs more smoothly. Set the emergency brake and put in gear--does it idle smoothly? If so, then you likely have a bad vacuum leak within the booster unit. Restore the vacuum hose to the cylinder and arrange to replace the cylinder.

V6 engine idles rough after restarting, then smooths out


My first guess would be a dirty carb/fuel injector set. Run some fuel cleaner through the tank and see if it gets better. You might have to do it through a couple of tanksful. How long since you've had a tune-up? It might just be that time.
