The day I found this Vehicle, the Speedometer was operating in an intermittent fashion. Through my own research I concluded that this was due to a faulty Speed Sensor. It was agreed before purchase that this would be rectified free of charge.
Three thousand miles later my wife decided to drive it through a severely flooded roadway. Unfortunately I was not in the Vehicle at the time so was unable to render any common sense.
The resulting damage was as follows,
Immediate, The Transmission went into Limp Home Mode. This meant that it was permanently engaged in third gear only.
I had to replace the Transmission Computer to rectify this.
This also Put Paid to the Fuel Pump.
I burnt out the Starter before I found this fact out.
Of course there has been the usual outlay on replacement Brake Pads, Tires, Distributor Cap, Rotor Arm And Drive belts.
I would add that the replacement of the Main Engine Belt is an expensive procedure as you must also replace the Water Pump at the scheduled 90K Belt replacement Interval. However it only cost me Three Hundred Dollars, Including Genuine Honda Parts, so I cannot complain.
I am currently having problems with the Starter. It is due to the fact that I am reluctant to purchase a genuine Honda Starter. Instead I have been installing the Rebuilt Starters from the usual Parts Stores. Big mistake, I have now done the Job three times in the last month. This is not the Vehicles fault, Just been unlucky I guess. The Flywheel is solid, no damaged teeth. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of these imported rebuilt Starters.
I do know how to install a Starter in case anyone is prepared to comment below, I am an ASE Certified Technician and have replaced lots of Starters on these Accords on a professional basis.
