This VManual is an accurate affordable solution, it's better than a service manual in that it brings the information found in the service manual to life in and easy to understand and follow video format.  So if you've ever scratched your head while looking at the manual wondering how to do a particular procedure a VManual is for you.  This is a bolt by bolt, step by step account of the process of replacing the timing belt and water pump on Honda's B Series engine.  This engine was found in the Acura Integra, some Civic models, some Prelude models, and also early CRV's.  In this VManual I show more than one way to remove the crank bolt which in my opinion is the hardest part of the job.  There is a complete tool list in this VManual.  I also show how to correctly set the timing, set the belt tension, replace the water pump, and replace the drive belts.  I've seen shops charge as much as $500+ for this job but if you follow the steps in the VManual you'll be able to do it yourself thus saving all that money.  

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.

What kind of belts did you use when replacing the alternator and power steering pump belts? ETCG does not specify what they are.

Just got this B series video for my 97 CRV (timing belt broke right before I could replace it :sad: ) and had to comment! The trick for tightening the belt tension by holding onto the cam sprocket got rid of all the slop I was getting by following the factory service manual.

I was able to get the head off, replace a bent exhaust valve, do the timing belt and valve adjustment thanks to the resources here! I'm very happy to have this car running before the snow comes. Thanks, Eric!

Because of this video I was able to change out the spark plug well gaskets, head gaskets, water pump, belt tensioner, & timing belt. Saved me over $1000.00!! I just bought the J series video as I will need to preform this maint. in the next couple months on my 06 Accord.

Eric's attention to detail and easy to follow instructions make this an enjoyable task to the DIY'er

Quick question for you. I purchased this video and will be tackling the job in the next few weeks. My 2000 CR-V has an oil leak on the front of the engine, but without the timing belt cover off, I can't quite tell where it's coming from. From what I understand, it could be the front seal, the oil pump or the oil pan gasket.

I know you said during this video to see the Accord video for the front seal replacement. Exactly which video is that one?

If it is the oil pump or the pan, can those be replaced without jacking up the engine with a hoist?
0 # EricTheCarGuy 2015-08-30 06:48
Don't assume anything when it comes to oil leaks and always start high. It's more likely to be the cam seals or valve cover seal than anything else. That's covered in the F series video. More info here. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/finding-and-fixing-leaks

OK cool, thanks. I just purchased the vehicle for my wife 2 weeks ago with 165,000 miles. Pretty high miles, but we got it pretty cheap.

The dealership had pressure washed the engine while it was on the lot and looked pristine. There's a slight burning oil smell when we park, and there is now some oil starting to accumulate on the bottom driver's side of the engine compartment. So far, there doesn't appear to be any leaking around the valve cover. That's why I was asking about the front seal, oil pump or oil pan.

I know it's probably not correct anymore, but I've always called the "front" of the engine where the harmonic balancer and pulleys are.

You're correct, that is the front of the engine. Once again, start high with oil leaks. Details in the link I gave you. Put the oil pump seal at the bottom of the list. You're better off not messing with it if you can avoid it.

Thanks, Eric! You're the man. I'm going to purchase the F series video as well.

I need to replace the accessory idler pulley. Can I do that without pulling the power steering. Does this video cover that does it just remove all the accessories in the process of R&R of the timing belt.
0 # EricTheCarGuy 2016-06-25 06:33
it's a lot easier to access the AC pulley with the power steering removed. The VManual does cover this. You don't need to remove all the accessories, just the PS pump.

I'm glad you found the video helpful. Thank you very much for your comment.

Hi Eric,

The runtime for this video says approx 90 mins but the streaming vmanual is approx 79 mins, meaning a chunk of 11 mins missing. Could you please check it? Thanks
0 # EricTheCarGuy 2019-12-14 05:56
In all the years that this video has been available no one has complained of missing footage. Sadly I can't explain the discrepancy.

Hi Eric, with all due respect, I was not complaining. Just wanted to know if I would miss some important information while watching this video. I guess it's a typo or something that on the page description, it says runtime of approx 90 mins when in fact it's about 79 mins.

I didn't take your comment as disrespect, I was just trying to answer to it. Sorry about the discrepancy.
