Icon5 non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

k i have a question?
i have a h23 that has gave me nothing but problems sense i bought it, and right now when i start it up my lude wont ideal right and has a knock in the block around 3k?
it seem to be getting worst every time i start it up?. i have already timed it with a new belt and everything, and changed the coils? just like all my friends and mechs told me too, but the car still sounds and seem out of time or something?
when i start it up it runs for about 10 or 15 sec and starts missing alittle then kills itself "dont ideal". the headers get really hot and the car smokes badly. but when u run the rpms up around 2k it doesnt miss or knock or anything? if u go on up around 3k it has a knock in the block and the check engine light kicks on? i have already been to four differnet mechs and they all dont know what it is. i even took it to honda?
can somene please help me.

i would put a h22 but i have way to many parts for a h23. i have wraped my racing headers down to my down pipe with a nice aftermarchet exhaust. unless u can use a h23 header with a h22 block lol. i was thinking of upgradeing and put in a "blue top" vtec h23 engine.

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

an engine rebuild is your only "solution" to fix it. it would be cheaper to swap than to rebuild. you can keep your exhaust but not the header and if you have an intake than you can keep that as well. and with a blue top your going to pay alot more than with a good H22

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if its the bottom end that's knocking, your engine is already toast and its too late. You most likely spun a rod or main bearing, or both, which is extremely common in H23's if you don't meticulously maintain them.
As mentioned, an H22 swap will mosy likely be cheaper than rebuilding your h23.

I would drain the oil and see if you see any metal shavings in it. If so..... start saving your pennies. Its not a matter of IF the engine dies, its WHEN.

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

Is it a hard knock? Can you hear it from on top of the valve cover? If you can you probably need to do a valve lash and tighten some things. It's happened to me and all the certified tech did was tighten everything under the vc back up. After it ran completely normal. It's still a weak motor but it ran completely fine lmao

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

k thank you everybody, i will probly go with a h22 then. it will be a while before i can bc i have coll and stuff.

i have chagned the oil and there is little metal shavings in it. my friend told me the same things u guys told me. that i might have a spun a main bearing, or both.
i was just wanting other ppl ideas and stuff before i did anything.
so i can save my exhaust and intake? well lol i have a new raceing header that is hand wraped? would u guys know how much a wrap h23 header is? i "might" sell it so that would help me get money for my new h22. the only problem i might have is the harness? im not sure how u swap from a none vtec to a vtec? i know it is something to do with the oil pressure and ecu?, but that is about it lol.

thanks again

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

i have tighten everything i could multi times. the car seems to jump out of time everytime i start it up and run it for a bit and the headers stay hot. that is one of my reasons why i wraped them. i took my head to the shop and let them balence it and while they had it i drain the oil and found metal shaving so i thing i have a bad rod or bearing. so i have a newly balence h23 head that didnt fix anything lol. one of my friends said that might fix the knocking? along with a new coils and a crap load of sensers.

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

you may not be able to sell the header because it's wrapped and what kind of headder is it?
yes you can keep you intake and any thing from the cat back.

and yeah dude if there is metal in your oil im betting that you need an engine rebuild. its best to swap it if you are low on cash.

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

damn, i was just glancing at this thread and it made me really scared to have an h23! is this really a common thing? besides not revving the piss out of it, is there anything particular i can do to make my motor last? last question: how much would a good h22 motor cost?

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

if your worried bout money and keeping all of your h23 parts just drop in a f22.

you can pick those up for around $250-400

h22 goes for $850-1500

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

pretty sure nothing was said about going boost.

there is nothing wrong with going f22, sure its the snail of the family, but still a good cheap motor. oh and plus he wanted to keep all of his performance parts, that WILL fit the f22.

When my friend built the block (head is usually fine and doesn't need too much work) it ran him almost $300. All OEM build.

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

the headers is a AEM racing.
My friend has a non vtec h23 that has 185k miles for $300? i think tha is way to much for the motor and still be in the same boat as i am right now. I probably could talk him down to $200 is that still to much?
Where could i look to find a cheap h22/h23 engine, that have low miles? "dirt cheap though" i have college.

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

with 185K, $200 is about right. has he kept up with the maintenance on it?

the cheapest way your gonna get a motor is exactly that way, knowing somebody locally thats selling/parting out they're car and you can go yoink the engine. trust me, i've blown up 2 engines while in college when i was POOOORRRR poor, and even sacrificed drinking beer for a coupla weeks
i never wanna do that again!

Re: non vtec h23, knock in block at rpms around 3k

lol k, well the motor seems to be fine and in good shape. it comes with a ecu and box full of parts. the only problem is that im going to have is to tare down the whole engine and rebuild it bc with that many miles i bet alot of crap needs replaced. plus the motor hasnt been ran for a while. he swaped it for a h22 and jsut left the h23 in his garage for about a year or two of not longer i cant remember. he says it runs fine and ideals prefect lol. "his word" i was hopeing that i could just find a engine i could just put right into the car and run it though. i dont really have time right now to work on a old motor "coll"

just change out the seals and put in some fresh oil then once its in the car seafoam it......and since its already out of a car you should have no problem and if you work at it you could finish replacing the seals and belts in a day then swap it in a day. two days and you got your self a non leaky H23 that could get you A-B with time to save up for a newer engine
