I assume the starter cranks but it won't start up?

I've had fuel-fouled plugs (a long time ago) that looked real nice & clean so I was too stubborn (cheap) to replace them. Finally with brand new...

Corrosion in the seam around the middle of the tank? Not sure if anyone makes some kind of sealant, but it seems to me the real fix is a new tank.

But first, I'd rule out any of the hoses &...

Probably the easiest is to do that at the main-relay. Not sure if I have it (only have the 1998-2002 book), but someone here can try to find the location of that relay and which blades you should...

Welcome to HAF

It would help to know what year/version/engine is your Accord. (Probably I won't know the answer but someone would still need to know what kind of Accord we're talking about...)

With Hondas it's often the motor brushes are worn down just barely enough to lose contact. Hit it while someone is turning the key - that works a few times but buys enough time to either get a...

If the throttle is held fully open for some reason, you'll loose most of your vacuum boost for the brakes. If you simply use more muscle on the brake pedal, the brakes should be able to stop the car....

I think the dealer should be able to explain that since it's a new car.

He tested it so that's alright. If you check the level in the actual radiator every so often that's good. The pressure check is more for locating a leak vs. watching the level is the best way to...

Here in USA, a nice choice is Wagner Thermo-Quiet. I don't know what's available in your area.

New motor is from an automatic car?

The crankshaft is the same, but the flywheel uses longer bolts than the "flex-plate" of an automatic. So make sure you get the flywheel-to-crank bolts from the...

First thing is that disconnecting the battery won't clear the codes. Starting 2003 the Accords have non-volatile memory so it won't clear the codes that are in memory.

You already know the bolts holding the bellhousing to the engine block since you've done the automatic.

It would also be good to measure the battery voltage while starting. If the starter's load causes the voltage to drop too low that might cause all sorts of crazy things.

I can't tell by the nature of the sound, but the PS pump seems likely.

The biggest thing is to pinpoint the location of the noise. Try a "poor-mans stethoscope" - a scrap piece of garden hose up...

I broke a good portion of them; that was a 10 year old car at the time. This sort of job is usually on a car that's older and the plastic stuff gets brittle.

First, you'll have to know what the rear angles are (camber & toe). The sway bar doesn't really control those angles, so the adjustments would be in the suspension not on the sway bar.

I don't like that method because it doesn't refresh the fluid down in the calipers and lines. When brake fluid absorbs moisture, it becomes more corrosive, and those are the places where corrosion...
