Honda Accord Valve Adjustment - EricTheCarGuy

This one was a request from a couple of viewers, I like to keep you all happy so here you go. This video is actually taken from a larger video I call "Accord Smackdown", in it I replace the timing belt, radiator, a major service, and some other stuff that I don't remember. I think there will be a couple more videos from this "smackdown" in the future, there is some good stuff in there that I think you will like and possibly learn from. If you have other topics you would like covered don't hesitate to let me know, I'm happy to give you what you want. Post them as text or video responses to this or any of my videos. I'm going to get the part number for the tool I used in the video sometime next week and post it here so keep your socks on and check back sometime next week.

Honda K Series Valve Adjustment -EricTheCarGuy
I've done a few valve adjustment videos in the past and I've been asked about doing one on the K series engine from Honda for some time. Since my 2004 Element was due for a valve adjustment I decided to make this video of the process. Here's the additional information I mentioned in the video. Honda recommends checking the valves at 110K intervals. The clearance specs are as follows. Intake: .008-.010in .203-.254mm Exhaust: .010-.013in .254-.330mm Good luck and thanks for watching.

P0401 Honda Accord, Cleaning EGR Passages - EricTheCarGuy
I know I'm jumping around but it will all become clear in the end, I hope. This is once again that same Accord that I worked on but this time I focus on cleaning the EGR passages. Over time these passages become clogged with what is called "hard carbon deposits", many speculate as to the origins of this material but it is in my opinion the product of condensation and carbon buildup inside these passages that seems to contribute to this problem. The fix is pretty straight forward as you can see but the diagnosis can be tricky at times. Sometimes the check engine light will come on for an EGR flow code, but on earlier models EGR flow is not detected by the ECU and in those cases it might manifest as a failure of an emissions test for high NOx emissions. When this is the case the symptoms sometimes include, surging on the highway or a misfire under load. For the most part EGR's are easy to check but there are some EGR systems that are very difficult to service and repair. All I can say is to consult with the service manual or a knowledgeable tech whenever you run into a system your not familiar with. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- You can also leave questions as text or video responses to this or any other video I've posted.
