Your crank sensor could be going bad, it could have a bad connection or damaged harness-the chances that there is an issue with the crank itself is a little too far fetched, unless the mechanic thinks there might be something wrong with the reluctor, which is what provides the crank sensor with a signal-that too is kind of rare. I am just guessing here, but I think it's time for another mechanic-he was just THERE when he did the repairs, and now he wants to repair/replace the crank due to a crans sensor code??? You are right, something smells.

My belts are making a screaming noise when i start car sometimes and while driving sometimes I have a 1991 ex accord honda,


If in fact they are doing it sometimes, but not all the time, this is indicating worn out belts, and they need replacement.
Belts can look good, but can slip and squeal when they get hard and brittle.
I, too, have had that experience with my Hondas.
If the belts did it all the time, you would look for a defect in of the components that the belt is driving. ( Water pump, a/c compressor, idler pulley, power steering pump, alternator, etc.)
God bless your efforts.

MY ACCORD HAS 119,000 MILES ON IT AND I HAD THIS WORK DONE ON THE CAR. 1. TUNE UP 2. RAIDIATOR FLUSH 3. TRANS SERVICE 4. BELTS CHANGED THE CAR RUNS GREAT BUT I AM BEING TOLD TO HAVE THE TIMING BELT CHANGED...


well that is how I always sell a timing belt job also. The water pump is driven by the timing belt and it is very labor intensive to replace. I always replace the water pump also because you have to remove the timing belt to replace. I have had people refuse the water pump, and have to spend the same labor dollars a few months later when the pump went out. Even if not leaking it is always good insurance to replace the pump with the timing belt but is not a must just good idea.

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)

Belt name


I have a 92 Accord, and there are only 2 belts that he can be referring to, one is the drive belt, which spins (drives) the power steering pump, a/c compressor, water pump, etc. the other is probably the one he is referring to, that's the timing belt. Honda recommends it be changed every 90k miles. If this belt isn't changed every 90k, it may break, and the accord has what is called an 'interference-' engine. This means that if the belt breaks, the valves and the pistons will strike one another, causing extreme damage to the engine. Note that if it is time to change the timing belt, u should also change the water pump, as it is easy to do at this time, and will cost much more down the road if u have to change it later, paying someone to disassemble much of what was done to replace the belt. Let me know if u have any other questions, or if I didn't answer your question clearly.
