  1. 30 people in a Facebook thread pining for the old days. Two go to the website.
  2. If you have access to a timing light: http://my.prostreetonline.com/2014/08/06/how-to-check-honda-civic-ignition-timing/ It's for a civic but the base process is about the same. Probably redundant but chatting on a forum I never know how skilled or thorough the person sitting at the other keyboard is. The timing covers are just to keep debris and engine fluid splatters off the belt. You could run the car without the covers if you really wanted.
  3. Sure. When the engine is cold it runs rich and at a higher idle until operating temp is reached. Could be the extra fuel is just hiding the timing being off. Your issue sounds entirely like a timing problem, but that isn't limited to just the belt. The plugs could be out of sequence or the distributor could be faulty or advanced/retarded too much. Hell, it could be a faulty injector too. It might be fouled up and under load the higher flow rate means enough fuel is getting there to avoid a misfire but under idle conditions it's not getting enough through.
  4. It's alright. Total pain in the ass but good thing you figured it out. Worth the extra effort to do it right.
  5. Have you checked to make sure the timing belt didn't jump a tooth? You mentioned a recent TB and WP I hope that also included the tensioner pulley too? With time that pulley shaft will bend and allow slack in an otherwise good belt.
  6. There is still some interest. Just need a few people to start using this place for social time on occasion. Really doesn't have to be about cars, just traffic.
  7. That's not good. Never had my hands on a v6 for a TB change so I'm not much help. Do you have a service manual? It should identify the sizes of the bolts needed for the job. Hopefully that can jog your memory.
  8. There is an ignition relay to check. Sometimes it just comes loose and can be reseated. It is officially called the Main Relay. A quick google search should net you a few pictures of where to look for it on your specific car.

    sun visor

    This place isn't very busy and a generic 09 Acura for a description isn't very helpful either. There were what, 15 Acura models in 2009? Each one probably had a different method of mounting the sun visor. I am not a human encyclopedia. You are going to have to do it the old fashioned way: grab a screwdriver and figure it out. For what help can be offered a picture of what you are looking at might help.
  10. You can't find a straight answer because you have some of your info wrong somewhere* The d16y7 from your 96 is a terrible engine. Non-vtec about 105hp or something. It's great for commuting and sipping gas but generally only worth about scrap aluminum price. You are correct that it is an OBD2 setup. Where you have something wrong is the other car. You list your 95 (or 93, which is it?) as having an d16y8 with an OBD1 setup. This is not possible. The y8 was a solid engine. vtec, 130 something hp, about equivalent to the d16z6 but it was only every offered as an OBD2 setup. in 96-00 cars. The 92-95 cars were all OBD1 with either d15b7 or d16z6. The b7 was pretty worthless too. Similar to the y7. *The only way this would all pan out as you initially described it is if someone did one ridiculously janky engine swap and cross-wired the shit out of a lot of sensors on that 93/95. Ultimately, you need the ecu that matches the engine. you will likely need to rewire your engine harness yourself. no one bothered to make an obd2 to obd1 conversion harness for a y7 because there was really minimal reason to swap a y7 into any car even if the engine was free.
  11. From 2-14 to playoffs? Might be wishful thinking there. I don't really follow NFL. I live in Columbus OH. Epicenter of college football. The entire town lives and dies by Buckeye football. Sometimes people around here remember that the Bengals and Browns are also in the same state but not until about mid December.
  12. I can't say it is normal for your car specifically but in many cars it is normal for the clock to stay on for a while. The draw of the digital readout from the clock is so minuscule that it would literally take years to drain the battery so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
