I have a 2000 Honda Accord I love the car; I have 186,000 miles on the car. I have had just one problem the EGR valve it happened at 106,000 miles and now it has just happened again. The cost for this was $375.00 the first time and I am sure it will be that or more this time. I know the car had a recall on this item, but it was limited to cars with low mileage.
The ERG work is not just replacing a valve the vacuum vent actual must be drilled out to clear the carbon build up.

My dealer sells the part for 99.95 and I am sure you can find it for cheaper elsewhere. You attach it to a drill I believe and ream out the carbon build up in the EGR.

I bought my wife a Honda Accord 2000 V6 EX back on Oct 06 with 58,000 miles. We are the 2nd owners and currently have about 78,000 miles. Everything seem to be running fine till recently last Oct 07. We were on our way home from a family dinner and all of a sudden the car felt like it was losing power and my dashboard lights started to dim. I was able to drive it for another 5 miles then my car just died.
I called my mechanic and explained the situation and he said that it maybe the alternator. I just recently got the alternator replaced last week and seems to work fine as far as what my wife has told me.
I hope that with all I've read from the previous post that Honda will honor a replacement for my transmission if needed. I am planning to get my next oil change at a Honda dealer and ask if there have been any recalls on my model car.
I have had great experiences as this is my 3rd honda. My first honda was a 1989 accord DX with 265,000 miles before giving it to my sister. I also currently have a 97 Civic DX with 170,000 miles and running great. If honda wants to keep me as a customer hopefully they will stand behind thier product when and if that time comes with my 2000 Accord.
Thanks to whom posted the links with all the TSB/Recall links. I did not realize that there were that many.

I have a 2000 Honda Accord SE, purchased new, with now about 205,000 miles on it. I still drive it to work every day, about 85 miles round trip. I must say that there have been no major problems, it runs fine, and by the way, it was manufactured in the US.
The only problems I am having now include the loss of a number of instrument lights (clock, odometer, temp control, etc), but these are easy to fix.

I'm really amazed, but not totally surprised, at all the complaints about the Honda automatic trannys. I have a 1989 (yes, an '89!) Acura Integra with 250k. Have had the car since January 1990, bought it with 5k on the clock. I had the typical problem with the tranny not shifting correctly in a corner (wouldn't find ANY gear) and supposed that it was aging/contaminated fluid. I'm a mechanic so am very familiar with most problems/repairs. I began changing the fluid and adding some solvents to the tranny (in case it was a problem with varnishing) at each oil change. No change in the corner-shifting issue, but the tranny always shifted strong in all other situations. Now, with 250k, the tranny still shifts VERY well.
I recommend to EVERYONE with a Honda, Toyota, and/or Nissan automatic tranny to change the fluid at least every other oil change. The fluid that is drained from the Honda is about 1.5 quarts, a bit more for the other brands. If you think $4 is too much extra to pay for a bit of preventative maintenance every 3k-5k miles, then please don't complain when you have to shell out $2k-$3k for a rebuilt tranny. Transmission oil will break down VERY quickly from heat, so it's no real surprise that so many are experiencing tranny failure with seemingly few miles.

I am in desperate need of some help. I have a 2000 Honda Accord and the transmission is out. I have read most of the comments and am curious as to where I find out the information on the recalls. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you. I am actually helping my grandmother out. This is her car.

Honda and Acura automatic transmissions are notoriously finicky about what they are fed. Only use genuine Honda auto trans fluid. If you've been using other brands, pay for a power flush to evacuate all the old fluid out and refill with the Honda fluid. You may have to change it out a couple of times before you get all the old fluid out. Your transmission should shift noticeably smoother afterwards.

Please someone help me tell me if my car is about to break. I just bought a 2 door Honda Accord V6, and when I put it in drive it jumps. Is it normal or bad, and when I push a little on the gas it hums.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I have a 2000 Accord EX-V6. I've about 105,000 miles on it. Honda fixed the transmission at about 65,000 miles. Today my alternator seems to have died!

I have a 2000 accord v6 yep the alternator had been replaced at 60k, distributor problems at 90k, but no tranny problems yet. Now the car has 105k srs light has been on for years, gas light hasn't come on for years, brake lights keep going out, but in the past few weeks it has not wanted to start. The engine will crank but not turn over. After a few minutes, it starts. I was hoping that someone else had had this problem so they could tell me how much it will cost me to fix. Maybe I'll just get a new one before it starts to have a lot of problems. Since December I've put $1200.00 into it. When an 8 year old car starts to cost a car payment each month I guess I am better off with a new car.

I have 2000 Honda Accord LX 2006. The transmission was out. I had like 97000 miles on it.
I called Honda; they replaced the transmission but I have to pay the labor charge, which was like $895.
Now I have 150000 miles on it. The other day I noticed the car is leaking lot of oil, so I took rhe car to the Honda dealership; they said my distributor is out, and I have to pay $322.
So I went online find out anyone is having the same problem. I found lots of people is having the same problem. If you are having the same problem, post your comments here.

Does a 2000 Honda actually have a distributor instead of a coil pack? That seems like older technology to me.

I have a 2000 Accord SE (4cyl AT) with almost 229,000 miles and I love my Accord! Never had any major problems, mostly did typical routine maintenance stuff and replaced timing belt twice, once at 90,000 and second one at 180,000. The transmission just started slipping gears a few times this weekend with the associated "check engine" light coming on, so waiting to find out final diagnosis and cost tomorrow. Afraid this might be too big of a cost to perform considering value of car, but can't complain at all if this is the case with the use I've gotten out of the vehicle. Was hoping to get through the winter as car still seemed to be running like new (until this weekend that is)...So many people kept telling me my car looked and drove like it was still brand new! Best low maintenance car I've ever had!! Really good on gas too especially with my 100 miles round trip to and from work every day! Sorry to hear some people have had problems with their Accords.
