Headed over to help a cow-orker wire in a smart thermostat among several other electrical projects yesterday when my trusty old 90 Accord started spitting & sputtering. Felt kind of like water in the gas maybe. Made it about another mile & it died while slowing for a stop light. Wouldn't restart. Had it towed home & started scoping it out this morning. Just didn't sound right. Getting spark, it's trying to start. Ended up deciding to pull the plugs. Started at #4 and worked back to #1. 4 did not feel at all good coming out. Makes sense now I guess 1-4 L to R. Thought for sure I must have broken the timing belt so popped the valve cover. Nope, that wasn't it. Hard to believe that as thick as the grooves are on those things that it could skip a tooth either. FWIW: timinig belt/water pump/idlers/plugs etc were done about 25k ago. Maybe I'll pop the head to see what kind of carnage happened. Car's got 240k on it, I put 100k on it in the last 12 years with a purchase price of $2,500. I got my $ worth out of it Now it's either time to suck it up & buy rain gear to ride the Magna or Nishiki to work or drive the big truck to work until the kiddo heads out to grad school. Wife wants the kid's Hondacar to replace the 03 Cavalier she's driving now.
