Honda Accord info.

I was wondering if anyone on here knows anything about Honda Accords. I know its a ford truck forum and we tend to look down on ricers, but i got it to save some fuel. Besides, i only paid $250 for it.

Anyway, its a 1991, its got 208,000 on it, but it fires right up and runs great. The only issue is the clutch either needs adjusted or replaced. Does anyone have any detailed info on replacing the clutch? Also, what kind of maintenance things should i look for and do with a Honda with that mileage?

Thanks ahead of time.

Clutch should be pretty easy to replace. Its kind of a pain to get the tranny out, just because of where everything is located, but with some help it aint too bad at all.

You'll either want a separate jack to hold hte motor up, or a cherry picker, as the tranny bolts to the passenger side motor mount, and you'll have to undo that to get the tranny out., plus it helps make it easier to get it out if you undo the rear motor mount.

A whole lot easier then most vehicles, there's just alot of little things in the way.

I had to remove one by myself, which was interesting. Actually i did a whole motor swap, most of which was done by just me since i couldn't ever get anyone to help.

Also, if your gonna replace the clutch, you might as well replace the slave cylinder, and master cylinder if you want. All of which should be fairly cheap.


As for maintainance, just your normal things. Oil, plugs, wires, air filter, and such. Might wanna take a look at motor mounts also. They may be cracked.

Actually i think its got a cable clutch, ill have to look at it again but im like 98% sure its cable. Thanks for the other info though. How hard is it compared to say, a 91 Mercury Capri? I attempted one of them and it was a b!itch. Have to drop part of the subframe.

Should also replace your timing belt if it hasn't been done recently

I have no idea if its ever been changed. How hard is that to do and what kind of $ am i lookin at? Im tryin to put as little cash into this as possible. But i know thats kinda important, bad things happen when the pistons come in contact with the valves.

It should be hydraulic. I'm 99% it has a hydraulic clutch.

Never done a mercury capri, but i prolly made it sound above alot harder then it actually is. Its pretty easy.

Yup if you don't know what your doing I wouldn't recommon replacing the timing belt... Your timing belt should be one of your highest priorities.. Also what engine is in that accord? I'm sure the belt wont cost much. Not known what engine is in it you will most likly have to remove drive belt, crank pulley, motor mounts, timing covers, timing belt tensioner... and whatever else might be in the way.

If you have access to a lift should be pretty easy...

If its a 91, it'll have either the F22a1, F22a4, or F22a6
