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.

1993 Honda Civic VX with Bent Valve
Wonder how your engine sounds with a bent valve? I did. The water pump on my '93 Civic VX seized. It caused the teeth of the timing belt to rip off the belt. I lost power and couldn't start the car. Since the VX has an interference engine, I knew this was bad news, but how do I know if I came out unscathed (as some people have)? This video illustrates what an engine with a bent valve or valves sounds like.
