How I know It is necessary to change it an how much

I have changed the thermostat, pcv valve, new coolant and it still overheats and has an eratic idle. It does not have eratic idle upon startup, but after about 3-4 minutes is when it starts. Also the hose for the pcv valve wants to suck in as if it is starving for air. Cannot figure it out. PLEASE HELP!

I replaced timing and balancer belts, water pump, all seals
spark plugs - made sure all timing marks good @ TDC - now,
engine won't start - turns over and tries to crank, but
something is wrong - was ok before I started - can anyone
help ? thanks - steve

I have a 1997 Honda Accord SE 4 door, auto, 4 cyl non vtec....My question is, there is a continuous "waaaaahh" sound coming from the front driver side, gets louder after 30 mph, and stops under 30,and is getting worse. Thought it was my tires they were a little worn, replaced them with some nice BFs but the noise is still there. I just checked underneath and the boot closest to the tranny, driver side is torn on the axle end. Im sure this is my problem. whats on the inside of the boot? whats making the noise? will a simple axle replacement fix it?

Where is the location for the obd connection?

Engine has flat spot in accelarater, suspect tps switch.

Its never been diagnosed etc.

While driving, suddenly my speedometer & odometer quit working. The check engine light came on & the D4 transmission light began to blink. I drove the car home, the car drove ok. Ive had the transmission fluid checked. It's ok. And the car seems to shift as it always had. Still, what could be up with the speedometer/odometer? There should be no way to defuse them. I am being driven to & from work because I don't want to drive it.

My accord's engine has no problems so far, recently replaced front brake pads. I live in an elevated area and want to be sure my brakes are in top condition. When do I need to change my brake and clutch fluid?

Is it possible to replace the stretched headliner with a headliner board? How do you replace the stretched headliner?

I have jusst recently purchased a 1997 Honda Accord SE. The check engine light was on and I had 3 codes pop up. The are P0171, P0141, and P0740. I have since changed the O2 Sensor eliminating the P0141 code. Would that had been the cause for the other two lights codes to pop up or do I need to replace something else? I do not have access to a code reader any more. Any help that can be offered would be great. Thank you.
