Re: what happened to my motor

sounds very very similar to when my H23 t-belt skipped a coupla teeth.

sucks that you already took the head off... now you can't check to see if that's what happened.

Re: what happened to my motor

hi man,did you try your plugs and leads first????because im a honda finatic and you shouldnt have took that head off,hondas dont like that no matter where or when they were made. fullstop you could run into bigger trouble in the future.always try the simple things first,the only thing i can say is i hope that head was skimmed properly and use a copper head gasket should be ok.i saw hondas boil over and still not blow the head,so good luck with your lude and i hope to hear that its back up and running soon.l
