    Welcome welcome!

    Those cars seem to never die.

    Carotman documented the carbed to EFI swap.

    Welcome!

    Seriously though, you'll get a much warmer welcome if you start a NEW thread in the Newbie Introductions section to introduce yourself. You can post pics of your car after 5 posts (feel free to whore your own thread to get to the 5 post minimum.)

    This is an old thread and is not getting much attention now.

    Yo!!

    So, I've never owned a Honda and the car I have now is the oldest car I have ever owned.

    I am driving a 87 Honda Accord LXi. It is in really good condition and only has a few small issues (hole in the muffler, motor mount, and the original deck has a tape stuck in it that I can't get out and can't use the radio because the tape is in the deck.). I really like the car and am glad I found this site because I really want to take great care of this awesome car, just as the other user did (130k original miles).

    I plan to be harassing all of you and getting as much information as possible from you... So, sorry if I become annoying with stupid questions, but luckily, there is a board for just that :-).

    Have a good one, and thanks for the site!

    Thumbs up Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Hi All,

    Just bought an 89 LXi Florida car with 132K on it. Car had been off the road for 8 years. Owner claimed he started it every 6 months. Don't think so, fuel line corroded along drivers floor, pumped some serious petrol with ignition on. Fixed fuel line with high pressure fuel line, started like it ran yesterday. A couple of ticks an then quiet and smooth. Left rear brake fused to drum, had to beat it apart. Did a "poor mans" brake job with 60 grit sandpaper so I could get it home. Just finished the brakes all around. Drums and rotors cleaned up fine, all new parts from there. Flushed the brake fluid all around, not pretty. Just need to clean the nests out of the heater circuit and give her a good cleaning. Oh yeah, new oil, tranny and radiator flush and she's like new. Surprised the auto trans survived the inactivity so well. Thank you guys for the tip on the code six problem. Located the temp sensor and found a brittle and broken wire. Did some surgery on the connector, added new pigtail to it and reinstalled. Still need to get right side headlight retract motor to work. Left works fine from both switches and both lamps work fine. Fuses are good so I am thinking relay or connector problem. Or motor (hope not). Glad I found you folks. Peace, Rick

    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Found the headlight retract problem. Removed the retract motor and found 2 broken wires coming from the top section of the motor. Soldered them back together, problem solved. Car still stinks from a rodent infestation. Removed the lower windshield cowl trim, looked like Hotel California in there! Spent the day scrubbing with ZEP orange cleaner, lots of of hose flushing. Getting better, still NOT there. The heater core is going to have to come out and be cleaned, pressure washed and deodorized. I will not be beaten by these little furry creatures. Car was parked for 7 or 8 years. Runs great, stinks like hell. Any ideas would be appreciated. Peace, Rick

    Re: Welcome to 3geez!

    Hello all!,
    My name is Patrick. I just bought me an 88 accord LX (carb) for $500! Great deal except it keeps overheating. So far that's the only major thing I can find wrong with it. So, here is what I have replaced on it to try and fix the problem: thermostat and gasket, coolant temp sending unit, radiator, and 3 jugs of coolant and no results. I've checked the upper hose its fine, not the lower one yet, water pump is not making any noise, the end of the heater hose was bulged so I just snipped it and put it back on, the oil is still oil and it is not milky or has any coolant in it. When it overheats the fans do turn on so I now its not the fans, although the temp gauge on the dash seems to go back and forth from working to not working. I just recently completely drained the cooling system to put new coolant in it and when I did white smoke was coming out of the radiator! Don't know what that means. I also took out the thermostat to see if that would help but it didn't seem to, I checked the upper and lower hose for heat, the upper got hot but the lower did not. I was expecting it to get hot a good bit after the upper did but it did not. I also tried bleeding the system but I cannot get a steady stream of coolant to come out, it just spurts liquid then steam. I checked on youtube and all of those its coming out of the tailpipe and its due to a blown or leaking head gasket. Is that the same problem I am having? This was the first time it has spewed white smoke. Any help is greatly appreciated! I apologize in advance if I have left anything out. Tomorrow I am going to test the cooling system pressure to see if it is leaking. I saw that on youtube too. Thanks in advance everyone!

    Watch the offset of the rims. Don't go too far from the standard +45 on our cars, your handling will suffer from it.
    I think anything up to 10mm more to the outside of the car (= +35) will be okay, and looks better!
