    VTEC solenoid seals/gaskets - which part numbers

    Also, these guys say that the seal with part number 36172-P0A-005 will fit in the CG8 Accord. https://jdmshop.eu/en/uszczelka-zaworu-vtec-36172-p0a-005

    VTEC solenoid seals/gaskets - which part numbers

    Made some findings that can be usefull. The 2000 Accord EX 4D (USA model), had the same VTEC element as the CG8 model (part number 15810-PAA-A01), which has been replaced by part number 15810-PAA-A02. You can check this info at...

    VTEC solenoid seals/gaskets - which part numbers

    In that case, I will not remove it. I am not sure if it's bad, but since I have no substitute for it, I will leave it. If it is indeed leaking, I will probably buy a second hand, and then check if there is a possible after market seal (or from another Honda), that resembles the one found in the...

    VTEC solenoid seals/gaskets - which part numbers

    Hi guys, I am about to replace the VTEC solenoid oil seal for my year 2000 Accord (1.8 F18B2 engine), which I suspect is leaking. As far as I know, there are two seals: 1) between the VTEC valve ***embly and the engine head; and 2) In the VTEC valve ***embly itself, between the solenoid and the...

    Changing alternator

    I have not replace mine, but I had to take it out a couple of times and that is pretty easy. The only thing you need to take care is to properly adjust the tension of the belt.

    detonation pinging pinking at minimal load - not at high load

    I definitely have to buy the Hondash to properly diagnose my Accord!

    detonation pinging pinking at minimal load - not at high load

    Wow, great finding! I did checked and cleaned my EGR a couple of years ago, but never looked in the detail to see if it closes completely. I also didn't check if the spring was working properly. When I have the time, I will take it apart and give it a look.

    Those readings are awesome? Try do get them when the pinking is happening to see if we can reach to a conclusion. BTW, what did you used to get those readings? And where did you got the signals? Straight from the ECU wires?

    I think that you can't install the distributor in other way. They do say to put the engine at TDC in cylinder 1, but they also say the lobe is offset to prevent mounting the distributor 180ยบ out of time...

    The other pulley, which i guess is what triggrers the CKP sensor, has 12 notches. That makes the 12 CKP pulses for 2 TDC pulses. You can see it mounted in the engine and in the ground where you can see the rear side:

    According to the repair manual, the left (front) sensor is the TDC sensor, the right one is the crank shaft position sensor:

    That steel plate with the two "ears", one in front of the left sensor and the other hidden under the right sensor makes part of that pulley. I suspect those "ears" are what triggers that sensor. If you look closer, those "ears" seem to be right in front of the sensor. Something like hits:

    After a closer look on the image, I think the left sensor is triggered by that metal plate behind that pulley that have a notch. I think that plate is attached to pulley.

    detonation pinging pinking at minimal load - not at high load

    The crack position sensor and the top dead position sensor are located near the crankshaft. I (myself) have replaced the timing belt twice, and I think the sensors are triggered by the pulleys. Take a look at the following picture. You can see the sensor on the left which points to the smaller...

    detonation pinging pinking at minimal load - not at high load

    Wow, that is a really nice hack :) I have a cheap ebay bore scope but the quality is not that great. It already has a couple of years, maybe the new ones are better. About your new findings, as you say, it really seems like it's a mapping problem. But that doesn't makes any sense, unless there...
