Is there a guide on here?
The key to anything car related is keeping ontop of maintenance. Look after your Honda, and your Honda will look after you.
I don't think there is a guide on here, but I can link yiu to one on you tube thats for a 2.3 litre f series engine fitted to an American accord, which is virtually the same engine.
Nice, I like that
It might even make you a cuppa tea and a sandwhich as well.
Edited previous post, can link to a YouTube vid on how to do it.
Please, I've had a look but can't find it
US spec Accord, but the same applies as its an F series engine
@Btppc if/when you do, do the belt change please take plenty of pics and actually create the guide.
This is how the community works, we help each other, by creating a guide you're giving something back to the community
Thanks, of course I will. It'll be a while yet mind
I've managed to get hold of a workshop manual 6th Generation obviously, would I be breaking the rules if I posted it? it seems VERY widely available and easily accessible.
Just had a look at that video, if it's identical I am REALLY looking forward to it, looks very fun, I'm being genuine here lol no sarcasm! Whilst I remember will any obd reader do the trick for this car?
I am not sure if it would break rules, depends if its a genuine item or a fake.
I have a blutooth obd reader for my car and it works really well with the Torque Pro app on my phone and its already saved me a few times when my EML came on.
Right, bought the car. I'll introduce it all later, but it has a vibration when it's in gear but standing (auto) but a slight touch on the throttle and she's as calm as anything, would tranny oil change sort this?
Could be engine vibration perhaps from torque loading the converter, how bad is it?
A fluid channge may help, but it could also be related to possible clogged EGR passages.
It's pretty bad, but literally as soon as I touch the throttle its gone, runs sweet otherwise, apart from a vibration at the streering whelel at 70. But thatts for a ntoher day. Is this going to cost me a fortune?
I don't know unfortunately. As I will be honest and sayI know very little about automatic transitions. A fluid change may help it though, but word of advice, use Honda ATF, as that's what the gearbox is designed for. Eric the car guy has done several videos on how to change the fluid.
But I will say this, try and eliminate as many possible causes first before condeming the gearbox.

Another thought that's occurred, how much ATF is in it, does it need topping up?

Yep, check the ATF fluid level first.
There is a similar guide here on Honda-Tech How-To: Replace Timing Belt, Timing Balancer Belt and Water Pump on a F22B1 - Honda-Tech
...or the PDF version from here http://www.iammike.org/htmods/HowToReplaceTimingBelt-TimingBalancerBelt-WaterPump.pdf (print off, copy to tablet etc)
Ok, level seems good, seemed a bit Brown, I doubt the EGR has ever been cleaned though, also I read somewhere about the idle control valve? Could this be clogged?
ATF should be a pinkish red, not a brown. I'm not sure about what colour Honda ATF should be though. EGR is unlikely to ever have been cleaned. I've not heard of any issues relating to the ICV, but I could be corrected on that.
ok, should the EGR be clogged, would it give me the idling issues?
