I'm also going to try to get my hands on some of these: that static420 suggested over bad bolts.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

Those could probably work, but you can never be sure unless you try. Have you checked through all of your storage compartments? The key might be somewhere inside. I know mine was in the glove box under all the insurance papers and what not.

You should also check out your oil cooler o-ring. It's behind the metal cylinder that the oil filter is screwed onto. Those are known to produce a leak.

Fine mesh that catches large particles in the oil going into the solenoid. When you take the solenoid off its right there on the back side you cant miss it

^^yes^^

Just did mine a couple weeks ago, its $2 + $8 for shipping from hondapartsnow.com, all you need is a oil filter wrench (or a strong set of hands) and a 33mm socket. Pretty easy process. I would do it when you do your next oil change, it will be very easy to do it then

I paid $4 for it at my local dealer.

Honestly, I thought it was a pain to put on. Every time I put the cooler back, the ring would fall out of placement and I would have to repeat the process all over again...

But it was worth it, went from loosing a 1/2 quart of oil in two weeks to loosing 1/4 quart every other month.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

If you dip the oring in some oil before you put it intobthe groove it stays put, itbdidnt fall out once when I did mine. The hardest part for me was getting the old oring out, I had to use a steak knife

Oh yeah, I always put a little bit of oil whenever I replace an o-ring. I don't know what made that one particularly difficult.

I use my local dealer for that 1 thing knowing the 32¢ thing is $3.75...but no s&h. If it'll wait I add other stuff to the cart at hpn to lessen the impact of s&h per item. Last order I bought 20 oil pan crush washers (77¢ea vs $1.72) and 12 dizzy o-rings ($1.77 vs $3+), then I had a near lifetime supply of those items and the $8 s&h didn't seem so bad.

The last one may have been non oem or not had oil on it.

O-rings for the dizzy?
My mechanic said that you can't get the gasket for the distributor.
It cost me $325 to replace the distributor, labor included.
I needed a new dizzy anyway, but still.

I can't find the bolt-grip at autozone.
Axle will probably end up being fixed by next tuesday at the LATEST, HOPEFULLY.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

I think there is still some hope, before the last resort (destroying my nuts to get my wheels off)

Me thinks Autozone carries the lug lock key, will pick it up on the way home from work.
Fingers crossed. Talk to yall soon.

Yes there is a most annoying dizzy o ring. Always gets brittle after the slightest overheat.

Good luck with that lug lock

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...


^^ mine had flattened out.
After removing the 1 bolt (because mine was missing the other 2) it practically fell out.
I picked off the chunks and placed on a new one. To put it back required a bit of force, which resulted in a 'pop' feeling.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

Mat, if you haven't downloaded a manual grab one. Get familiar with it.

Also go to the hpn.com site and study some diagrams from time to time.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

Not laying any blame here Mike, but just wondering if most of the flattening issues are due to over tightening. Does all the pressure of those bolts focus on the ring itself, or is it for the most part a soft, loose seal. I havent actually popped a distributor into place yet, so I havent felt that secondary pop for myself yet. I did a valve job way back on my h23, but never played with the dizzy, just removed the old one after the breakdown. That was a new one where the CPS threw a code, and that new dizzy leaked sometimes..

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

I don't know why they flatten. I figure it's a time thing...kinda like leaving a chair on carpet. Left there long enough the depression becomes permanent.
So figuring 2-3 years for the o-ring to stay sealed, I now have enough to last 24-36 years lol...just in case. But who knows they too may be brittle in a couple years.

But proper tension is very important, for sure. Don't know if it affects that o-ring of a distributor though. I'll have to toss that to my left brain for a while..(you know, the part that processez stuff while we go about life?)

My car came with 1 bolt holding the distributor. 1 very tight bolt. So that may have mattered.
But if memory serves the o-ring is a neoprene rubber. If you've ever surfed in chilly water you know the neoprene allows water to soak through after a while.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

Alright guyz, I think I have found a solution to my lug nut problem.
I found lock key at autozone, but it came as a lug nut and key combo so I had to buy the whole thang. I'm just happy that I don't have to break anything or cut my rims (i would be devastated if I had to do that)

But I don't so, YEAH!!!

As I was going to autozone, I took a wrong turn and had to turn around through a small store complex, and the entrance was steep and my front suspension bottomed out SOFREAKINHARD!!! I got out of the car to see if anything was F'ed. but things looked normal. I was pretty upset.

My springs are alright, but struts are (insert negative adjective here).
suspension can wait.

So yeah, I'm really tired. Need sleep. Talk to y'all later. G'night.

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

Those ports might be really gummed up in that case.
There is something that looks like a rail under your fuel rail, a tunnel cast into the intake. It carries dirty, soot filled crap, and injects it just above the intake runners onto the intake valves. This is emissions stuff, recycled, sampled exhaust gases. Its garbage and it clogs up the whole thing, not just the EGR solenoid. That is the band-aid fix. You have to clean out the runners, they get gummed up the most, and they equal up to alot of surface area and vacuum (or lack of vacuum, hence why it would fail to lift the egr plunger in the first case), unable to overcome spring pressure, thus, rendering a nice, clean egr solenoid useless.. Sorry, thats just how the monster was engineered. It can be deleted, or cleaned. 2 choices for a nice idle...



EDIT: did you ever take the little hose off the top of the egr and suck on it? I know it sounds a bit nasty, but you could break up some crud that is causing the diaphragm to seize... If not, it will pull up the sring will little sucking, if it is seized, it will take alot more... Just a thought, maybe the ecu hasnt seen the egr complete a cycle in a while..

I haven't read ahead, so I am going to ask... have you gotten them off yet?

Those "locks" are a joke, they were installed like 5-10 years ago.
I went to autozone yesterday and picked up a new set of lug "locks" and its key (I just needed the key, but I HAD to buy the WHOLE thing).

I will be changing those locks for OEM ones after I take care of all the mechanical issues.

There is something that looks like a rail under your fuel rail, a tunnel cast into the intake. It carries dirty, soot filled crap, and injects it just above the intake runners onto the intake valves. This is emissions stuff, recycled, sampled exhaust gases. Its garbage and it clogs up the whole thing, not just the EGR solenoid. That is the band-aid fix. You have to clean out the runners, they get gummed up the most, and they equal up to alot of surface area and vacuum (or lack of vacuum, hence why it would fail to lift the egr plunger in the first case), unable to overcome spring pressure, thus, rendering a nice, clean egr solenoid useless.. Sorry, thats just how the monster was engineered. It can be deleted, or cleaned. 2 choices for a nice idle...



EDIT: did you ever take the little hose off the top of the egr and suck on it? I know it sounds a bit nasty, but you could break up some crud that is causing the diaphragm to seize... If not, it will pull up the sring will little sucking, if it is seized, it will take alot more... Just a thought, maybe the ecu hasnt seen the egr complete a cycle in a while..
That sounds like a pain in the rear end. It also sounds like I could really screw something up (I most likely will).

What should I do?
Should I just do it? Because I really feel like that is a high skill level and the only things I have done to this prelude myself are windshield wipers and turn signal bulbs (I will get a picture of those later).

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

Guyz I got the car back @ 12:30 Monday, (forgot to update yall on here)
@bykfixer, You told me to study some diagrams...I'm wondering if I could possibly remove my intake manifold and let it soak in carb cleaner to loosen up the carbon for a night and then clean it out for a thourogh clean. Your opinion? what you (yall) do?

Re: Alright guys, I got an Update...

I don't have a drill to drill out the plug, but i'm thinking I could remove it with maybe screw hammer and screwdriver, or some other creative househould items...it will be hard but where there is a will there is a way.
