Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I pulled the head on my 92 Honda Accord EX so I could replace some damaged exhaust valves. After reassembling the engine and components the engine wouldn't start. It cranks and cranks but doesn't get any spark, at the plug or from the coil. I suspected the coil and replaced it. No dice, still no spark. Any ideas?

Are you sure that there is no spark, have you checked with a timing light? Are the wires on the coil connected correctly? Is the ignition module plugged in correctly and are all the wires on the distributor tight and correctly located? Try another ignition module from a system that is known to be working.

    I don't have a timing light, but I have checked each spark plug while trying to start and have checked for spark at the wire leading from the ignition coil to the distributor housing. The ignition coil is brand new, (less than 3 days) and with the key at II the female connector (supply connector) there is voltage at each pin to ground. I have included links to pictures of each reading. My book doesn't say a single god forsaken thing about the supply connector so I have no idea which pin is what or what voltage it should have.

    I also checked all three of the engine sensors within the distributor housing, each one passed a resistance check of 250-500 Ohms. Each sensor was somewhere near 330 Ohms.

    Ok, have had a look at your pictures and considered that you actually have spark. More questions, is the distributor fitted correctly - with #1 on TDC compression (#4 valves rocking) is the distributor rotor in the #1 plug wire position? Even if you have the valve timing out by one or two teeth, the engine should still sort of start, but not it the dizzy is out 180 deg. If everything check out ok, try a short spray of quick start in the inlet and see if you can get a cylinder to respond.

I have a f20a motor in a 91 accord can I put a 2.2 motor without having any major problems


I would only do this with a 92-93 EX Accord motor and keep it OBD0. I did this with no CEL codes, works perfect.

Swap the following parts from your old 91 engine to the 92-93 EX motor:

Intake manifold
Engine Wiring Harness
Distributor
Exhaust manifold (header)
Air Conditioner bracket and Air Conditioner Compressor

Keep your current ECU in the car. Put your transmission on the motor before you drop it in.

If you go to the 94-97 / 2.2 you will run into some additional sensors, crank position sensor, etc... with that motor since it switches over to OBD2 in 1996.

Good luck...

I have a 92 honda accord ex that the it idles go


If it does that when the engine is warmed up (full operating temp.) it may be you iac valve, or your fast idle valve. They get gummed up. It also could be your PVC valve, but probably not.:

accord8.jpg
IAC in red. Fast Idle in yellow. Your PVC valve is plugged into the valve cover (the black hose in between the red and yellow in the picture) it simply pulls out. It should rattle when shaken.
Hope this gives you a start on the problem.

Determining if head gasket is blown on a 1994 honda accord Ex w VTec


White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.
