This was the first full length VManual I ever made and it's one of my best sellers. The reason for this is because it covers so many vehicles, well that and it's a great tutorial. Not only does it cover the 1990-2002 Accord but it also covers early Odysseys, some Prelude models, and the 2.2 and 2.3 Acura CL models. This can be a tricky job with the balance belt set up but I walk you through the process in this VManual and by the time you finish watching you'll have a very good idea of what's involved, not only with replacing and installing the belts but also the water pump replacement and setting proper belt tension. Shops charge anywhere from $450-$600 for this service which makes this VManual a great value. I also show more than one method for removing the crank bolt in this VManual which can save you a lot of time and frustration when doing this job as that is probably the hardest part of the entire procedure in my opinion. There's a complete tool list in the VManual. The process of replacing the cam, crank, and balance shaft seal is also covered in this VManual. In addition I show how to install the belts and set up the timing should you break a timing belt and have to reset everything from scratch. All of this makes for a great step by step outlining the process of replacing the timing belt on the Honda F Series engine.

If you have issues with the download or have questions about the VManual send them to Support@EricTheCarGuy.com, there is NO PHONE SUPPORT for this product but emails submitted to the address above will be answered within 24 hours.

I bought this VManual because as a Ford Motor Company certified technician originally and now an independent shop owner I wanted more knowledge on Honda engine design & technical information on how to properly do a timing set replacement.

Well, Eric is the "Honda Dude" and very obviously knows these vehicles well as he accurately audibly & visually takes you step by step on the correct procedures for a complete timing belt set replacement of these year model F series Honda engines from his shop in addition to excellent email support via this ETCG site, the link is also above.

In my opinion as a fellow professional technician, this 16.00 VManual is
way better than any parts house "repair manual" and I highly recommend it for this job.

Thanks a lot Eric, your the man!

I purchased a download from your site and somehow I cant find it after the download. What do I need to do next?

As stated above, contact if you have any issues. There's even a link to make things easy.

Found the video very helpful. In my case, it was easier to remove the part of the engine mount bolted to the block too to increase access. I didn't put it back until I started putting on the tensioners but probably could have waited until belts.

I have a 2000 honda civic, and would like to know that if this video also helps civic's owners. Many Accord videos procedures are the same in some civic

In a very general sense it could help but the video is specific to the F series engine. I am working on a Civic timing belt video but I haven't finished the edit yet. If possible, I'd like to have it out later this year.

I have a 97 Honda Civic HX that I need to change the timing belt on here in the next 10K or so, so if you have a video coming out for it, you will definitely have a customer... Great Work Eric!..

I used this vid as a guide to change my 97 Accord LX sedan's timing belt. With this video, and a service manual with torque values, the job was pretty straight forward for a DIY'er. Eric's video guided me through the entire process from teardown to reinstallation and was invaluable. Thank you Eric for producing this video! It paid for itself MANY times over and gave me the confidence to do this job myself!

Hi Eric, I also bought the J series timing belt video and then bought this one and as usual, awesome most informative video and greatly narrated. I also needed to replace o-rings on the oil pump and after re-installing it, the rear balance shaft doesn't spin freely as it did before I removed the pump. I can spin it w/ my wrench with less than 7 ft lb of torque, but not by hand and of course, this makes it hard to set it at the correct timing position. What am I doing wrong? It was spinning normally before I removed the pump, now it locks up once the pump's installed. Thanks for your input.

First, I don't recommend removing the pump, but you're already past that. One of the main reasons is that getting things put back together can be very difficult. That said, you're just going to have to try and assemble it over and over until you get it together correctly. I believe the gears are marked. Good luck.

Thanks Eric, I'll work on it and report back. I figured I hadn't broken anything (yet) :lol:

Thanks Eric, I kept at it and figured it out this way, by simply feeding the shaft thru where it rests on the 1st journal. From there, I retracted it slowly just enough to where I could re-insert a screwdriver thru the service hole on the side. From there it was straight forward.
Thanks again for your help as always.

Glad you got it sorted. Thanks for the follow up.

I used this video to get my '91 Accord running again (and again after I discovered I had two bent valves and replaced the head). Thanks for taking the time to make this stuff Eric.

I'm always glad to hear when my work helps people. Thank you for taking the time to comment and good luck with the Accord.
