I shall do my up most to produce info to the small amount, if any (boo) , of people who are in need of help regarding 4th gen Accords 4th gen Preludes and 2nd gen Legends as they are all very very similar. This includes F series engines A and B and H series engines and all other aspects of the cars.

1993 Accord CB3
Production - 1989-1993
Chassis types CB1 CB3 (Europe) CB7 CB9 (USA) CB2 CB4 CB5 CB6 CB8 (Japan)
Build Locations - Marysville, Ohio, USA Sayama, Japan Nelson, New Zealand
Wheel base - 2720 mm
Length - 4704 mm 92-93 Saloon (not coupe or wagon)
Height - 1341 mm 92-93 Saloon (not coupe or wagon)
Width - 1704 mm Saloon and Coupe (not wagon)
Weight - 1,237 kg Saloon with towbar and ABS versions

Engines came in SOHC and DOHC Carb and PGM-FI F series

USA had F22a1 Producing 125 hp @ 5200 rpm 137 ftlb @ 4000 rpm
F22a4 Producing 130 hp @ 5200 rpm 142 ftlb @ 4000 rpm
F22a6 Producing 140 hp @ 5600 rpm 142 ftlb @ 4500 rpm

4 PGM-FI engines F20a4 F20a5 F20a7 F20a8 ranging from 133 hp - 150 hp @5400-5900rpm 138ftlb @ 4400rpm

Japan had DOHC F20a 150 hp @ 6100 rpm 137 ft·lbf @ 5000 rpm

Special details: First production saloon in world to have (DWS) Double Wishbone Suspension all round. One of the first cars to feature optic reflectors with completely clear lenses on the headlamps replacing the more conventional lens diffused lighting. Whilst still using glass lens.

Shared many optional extras to the Honda Legend, Electric windows all round, Cruise control, ABS, Electric adjustable seats, Heated seats, Half Antenna, Parking Pole, Soft Foam seats, Electric folding and heated mirrors, (more to add as I research)

In 1991 the Accord won Car Of The Year award. And was the best selling car for 2 years from 1991-1993 in the USA.

Typical weaknesses (after 10 years plus) : ABS sytems prone to sensor failure. Power antenna doesnt operate fully up. Fuel filler neck corrosion. Rear quarter panel rust. Weak brake master cylinder.

Strengths; Superior handling, direct steering rack, good power to weight for its age, massive boot, unbreakable engines.

In the USA there are 4th gens, that have over 400k plus and still daliy driven with occasional track use. There is some records broken using the 4th gen, racking up close to 1million miles with same engine. The engines are over engineered, as a result popular in the drag racing and forced induction scene.

(I shall add more when more knowledge is gain.)

Hope this is useful/interesting for someone B)

Very useful indeed Marcus, and clearly demonstrates Honda's committment to top engineering standards from at least 20 years ago.

This is pretty clear cut on these gearboxes. Its Honda Manual Transmission Fluid, this is the best. The second is Royal Purple Oils.

Didn't know these were 1200kg, that is pretty light for a big car! How much did the 4WS cars weight?

Yeah about 1240-1260kg UK spec, the US with airbag stuff and crashbar in the bumpers are more closer to 1280-1300kg.

The 4ws i know exactly as Ive wieghed mine! 1348kg (orange light fuel load, nothing else in the car) So the auto and 4ws CB7 adds about 90kg to a standard UK 4th gen CB3.

Put that in perspective, 6th gen Accord is about 1350kg manual. A E39 BMW 5 series is about 1450kg.
