Welcome!
Are you in England or Europe? (we don't get that car here in USA)

For some reason Honda has never brought diesel engines to US.

Hi again. Still don't have pictures.
The machine has some work to be done.
Will do it myself next week.

1. Change alternator
2. Change tensor poli
3. Change poli
4. Change acc belt
5. Change suspension front mount bush
6. Clean and recalibrate injectors
7. Clean and decarbonize turbo
8. Repair leak in exaust collector
9. Change brake pads
10. Filters, oil and fluids change

Could use some help, or else I'll have to learn on the job, in points 6, 7 & 8.
Do you know some DIY about those services that I can use?

There are also some minor adjustments to do in the car skin just to be perfect.

Overall I'm glad I bought it.
I change wheels a lot... a lot.
Somehow I managed to be in a situation now with all Honda wheels.

Have a 2015 Honda Bike. Honda Integra S 750
Have a 1999 Honda HRV 1.6 4WD petrol that I bought to my wife that's finishing her driver's license
Have the 2005 Honda Accord 2.2 i-CTDi diesel for me

Well.... I think trouble with those wheels for the next years is out of the question.

Welcome Shimneon. It's kind of funny you mention having all the same wheels at 1 time. About 3 years ago, my son was the only member of the family with a Honda (has a Civic). Now, he has 2 Civics, his wife has a Pilot, my wife has an Accord, and I've got 2 Accords. He started everything, then I bought my wife's Accord (the thought I bought it for me, and she was getting the Geo), and about 15 months later I bought a 97 Accord with a 5speed (back in March). Then a friend spotted a Honda for sale right around the corner from me for sale cheap. I went and looked at it, and bought it (a 99 Accord 5 speed). It needs some work, but it does run and drive pretty good. The PO thought it needed an engine, but it really needed a harmonic balancer and a timing belt adjustment to get it to run correctly.

I've had a lot of cars... a lot.. through time.

But kind of funny too, my first car was an '73 Honda N600 that I bought back in 1993.

Unfortunatelly youth (mine) got the best of it, and after 150000km and 3 years in my hand had to die in the junkyard.

In 1996 had another Honda a '93 Civic 1.5 Lsi, great car.

But through time until now I've had more than 20 different cars and bikes.

But now I'm good and glad. Once I get the Accord perfectly running I will be satisfied for a while for sure.

I'm having a small issue now, that I posted on Help section, if you could take a peek and point me in the right direction or get someone who knows what's happening I would be greatly grateful.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
