Default Engine "type"

This is going to sound like a dumb question but how do you know what "type" of engine you have ? Ihear people saying they have H22's and F23A1's, and all. Im wondering how i know what type i have ?

Yes VtecHef, your engine is a F23A1. Same kind of accord I have, 99 accord EX 4-cylinder V-tec.

98 also has the f23a, unless it's the Accord Euro R, then its an h22a7

all above post are right. if you have an i4 from 98-02, then you have a f23a1 or f23a2 depending on the year. the v6 models have a j30a1 which has a crappy tranny. and the h22 is from a prelude. it's pretty easy to recognize the different types of engine after awhile.

all of the blocks have the "nomeclature" stamped on the side of them on a little flat looking plate.... if your motor is anything like mine it's probably coverd in gunk but if you wipe it off you'll see it just fine...
