    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Hi All - I'm Ryan and I just bought an 89 LX 4 door. 266k miles. New head gasket, cam, valves, fuel pump, timing belt, water pump, radiator, distributor, and awesome 13" tires! Runs great and looks very good for being 25 years old. It is completely original and reminds me of how I fell in love with these cars when I was 11. Tell me why it steers better than any new car I've ever driven? I have owned a 92, 95, 03, and 10. None of them steered as good! This is my first carbed Accord (I drove an 88 carbed Prelude in high school and college) so I am going to put some work in to it. This car represents my journey to financial freedom. No car payments and I can restore it one part at a time.

    Hey all, I'm Jason. Just bought an 88 accord lx 4dr (189k)with some issues. Kept running into this forum in my Google searches and it seemed like a place i NEED to be. Best info i found anywhere is on here so I'm excited. Used to have an 84 accord that i loved, was still running like a champ at 350k when i gave it away and missed it ever since. Stoked to get another 500$ wonder car!

    An 86 you say... For the love of god, don't break the turn signal stick or the whipper side ether on the combination switch. Mine was snapped off when I got my 86 and took some time finding a replacement

    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Hello, just joined. Got an 89 LX, A/T and carbed.

    Had a new thing happen yesterday. Car has been hard to start (read everything here I think) but headed out and a few miles from home it dies at a stop sign. won't restart. Will only run when the starter is engaged.
    So, held the key to keep starter going and dropped it in gear and took off. Figuring I would then need a new starter and perhaps some wires if I could make it home without it catching fire. Went about 1/2 mile and had some momentum and released the key. It kept running. So weird.
    Went to put new cap and rotor on and it has oil in it.

    I love cars, don't get me wrong, but sometimes they frustrate the shit out of me!!!

    I expect this forum to be like a counseling session!

    . There is a seal in the distributor to keep oil out and it sounds like you need a new one. I replaced the seal and Bering in my 86 and found it's not all that hard too do.

    Got that fixed. Car will not stay running unless you keep starter engaged when you put it into gear. Also hard to start.
    Got new plugs, cap & rotor. Didn't change a thing about how it starts.

    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    In 40 years I have never had to hold the starter engaged and put car into gear and drive before being able to release the key so it will stay running.
    Also changed both fuel filters.
    Reading through all the FAQ and have seen similar issues but not this exact problem.

    Really hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction.

    Maybe a bad ignition switch?

    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Hey guys, I wanted to say thanks for all the info, I have been playing hell with my 88 but thanks to this site it's up and running again.
    I have an 88 Lxi 5 speed sedan, my mom bought it a couple of years ago for like $300. She got a new car a few months ago and my trans went out in my truck so I picked it up from her and have been enjoying it. It has 220000 on it but the engine and trans are good still, I had a ground wire go bad and it caused the throttle cable to melt into the plastic where it goes through the firewall, it was a pain but it's good to go now. Still need to replace the vc gasket but have been working on getting 26 years worth of cooked on sludge off the motor first haha

    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Hi every on glad to join in on a awesome Honda forum. I have a 97 Honda Accord LX that's hard to get rid of. I let it sit for 8 mo. Never went out to start her to keep her awake. (Don't ask me why please) I'm unable to drive for the time being. I just kept walking past her. So now I'm possibly thinking bout selling, MAYBE because after hearing some of your comments I may not be ready to let her go. I've had her since 2003. After getting her started found out the serpentine belt, basically alternator was bad. Not bad huh! Woke up next morning something had leaked from underneath. Now i have a gas line or tank issue. If its the tank man. 230k miles. Dunno whats next. Mechanic says $150 labor and parts for altenator. But... that has to be fixed before finding out the leak cost. Im trying to sell it. How much Im money am i trying to put into. If i sell.

    I'm probably going to regret engaging you on this but... do you mean an 87 Accord?

    Hi my name is David and I am not new to the world of 3gee accords aka ca accords. I have had 3 but they were all LX-i's so this new 88 accord I got that was a lx is kinda new grounds for me. But I have a set of Innovative motor mounts that convert the a to b series motor. but what I wanted to know was would I need to replace the fuel pump because its carbed?
