Which gasket is leaking, the head gasket or the cam cover gasket?

Timing chain must be removed from camshaft sprocket. This requires removal of crankshaft pulley, timing covers, etc to access the chain.

I don't know of a short-cut, but I have seen folks suspending the chain and pulling head over chain (in other models, not Accords!). Sprocket/s w/ chain would need to be removed to enable this feat. No easy matter there either. You might check youtube for this option.

You need a shop manual before doing anything. Suggest checking w/ automanualsource.com for a download manual, $22 a bargain.

good luck
