1991 Honda Accord cyllinder

  • 4 CYL
  • 2WD
  • 150,000 MILES
My mechaninc claims that my car thru a cyllinder thru the engine due to high rpms. Could this be a result of the origanal repairs he did.

I brought the car into the shop to have all seals and gaskests replaced specifically the rear main oil seal. After retrieving my car I noticed that the transmission would no longer "automatically shift" and it would not come out of "sport". I ALSO noticed that the car was "missing" real bad and was still leaking oil. I called the repair shop after breaking down, they came and got the car for a second time and again "repaired" it. After retrieving the car the second time, 1 day later and 40 miles from home the car broke down again. This time catching on fire. (Florida highway partol was able to extinghuish flames) the repair shop again retrieved the car and said that there was going to be more repairs needed that were not covered under his 2 year 24000 mile warrenty and the origanll repairs. (The timing was off by 1-2 teeth [the timing belt was replaced on the 1st trip to the shop] the timing was corrected on the second trip to the shop)
Do you

Hi joshuasimpson,

I am still very confused but hate to leave any questions unanswered.

High RPM should not throw a piston through the block unless there is something wrong with the bearings or con-rod.

If it had happened, the block would need to be replaced. I don't believe it is a one day job.

If the Sports mode blinks while driving, at least one transmission sensor or the speed sensor should be malfunctioning. If the speed sensor is faulty, the speedometer would not be working.

If the gears refuses to shift, most probably the shift control solenoids are faulty or not connected.

This is the first time I have heard of a Honda catching fire. Do you know the source of the fire? Alternator, fuse box, starter?
Was this
