Re: 97 2.2 questions

I think the engine life depends on the owner. Was the previous owner taking the time to do oil changes on time, checking fluids, replacing malfunctioning parts, etc?

My 99 has 173,000 and is still going strong with good compression. I've only had her for the last 63,000 and I've been on her like white on rice!

My tranny is also the same mileage as my engine and it has issues at times. Check the solenoid on the transmission top front, it has a double screen and sometimes gets clogged. If it’s clogged I would suggest cleaning the screen with cleaner, then performing a transmission flush. This runs about $70.00 for the oil from Honda and a few hours to fill, drive, drain, and repeat.
