Question about 1996 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Water pump went out on my 96 Honda Accord EX 2.2L VTEC. I replaced timing belt, balancer shaft belt, water pump, both serp belts, and tensioner according to manufacturer specs. Put everything back together and started up the car. Ran great for about 10-15 minutes. As it started to warm up the idle began to drop. Then it started to misfire really bad. vehicle died out and would not start unless you gave it gas. CEL came on and gave codes P1382, P1300, P0301, P0302. Checked the distributor, it tests out good. Now if I unplug the EGR the idles great and does not cut out. Will the egr cause all these problems ???? Is there any solution to this? I am tired of rattling my head, and i don't want to buy something that i don't have to. All and any advise is greatly appreciated.

The EGR is a VERY advanced/(overly) complicated system, that can do a whole number (or three) on an engine: If you are in a state without emissions, you can get by with it. However, I would get it checked out anyway: You never know how bad it can drop your fuel milage.

A bad EGR valve could cause your car to experience hard starting, a rough idle, cruise control surges, popping noises from the exhaust, backfiring and sudden engine stops with cold weather or after deceleration.

Loose timing belt


The tensioner is defective. Replace the tensioner and the belt. Also replace the Balance Shaft belt. Also replace the water pump which is driven by the cam belt. This will save you labor costs later on. On your Honda the belt must be replaced every 90,000 miles. Your engine is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur.

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

How do i install a water pump in a 1995 honda accord ex 2.2 L sohc vtech


The water pump is driven by the cam belt and that belt must be removed in order to replace the pump. There is also a balance shaft belt. You engine is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. Also if you remove the cam belt, put it back on incorrectly and start the engine, you will have damage. There is too little space here to tell you how to do this. I suggest you pay a professional or purchase a repair manual in order to diy correctly. The cam belt must be replaced every 90,000 miles.

Water pump leaking


Unless your mechanically inclined, this is a tough fix if you need to replace your water pump. Your water pump is located underneath your timing belt cover (4cyl models) and basically have to have skills to get to it. These skills include removing motor mount bolt and jacking up the engine to get access to bolts that need to be removed. Unless you have decent mechanical skills, you're better off leaving it to the pros. I own a 96 Accord 4cyl 2.2L VTEC and I've done it, only because I needed to replace my timing belt.
