Hi, I have a 2.3 type V Accord 2002 and engine is struggling for power underacceleration

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Manual with 119k

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

Only just bought car! Seemed fine on test drive but as soon as I hit the motorway on drive home it showed why the prev owner was selling cheap

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hello welcome to Just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you.

can you tell me if any of the lights on the dash are on ?

if not then we can start some basic checks like a compression test and check the spark plugs also.

Only light is engine management light
Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 11 months ago

ok that's a good thing.

this will need to be scanned to see what code is stored in the computer so we can continue.

do you have access to a code reader?

most parts stores will scan this for free depending on the state you live.

if you can scan this and give me the code we can start a plan to repair this.

also please check the engine oil level it's most likely low.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
