Known Problems

An oil leak inside the distributor can cause the engine to misfire resulting in a loss of power. It is common for the distributor to be replaced to correct this concern.

One or both of the rear sway bar end links may break resulting in a knocking noise from the rear of the vehicle.

A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can misinterpret data from the coolant temperature sensor and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light. The PCM will need a software update for this issue.

A Check Engine Light can come on because some models may misinterpret the ratio of air and fuel being burned for combustion. The powertrain control module (PCM) can also misinterpret data from the coolant sensor and set a Check Engine Light. For either condition, the PCM will need to be replaced.

Some models can have a problem with moisture entering the fuel pressure regulator and affecting the amount of fuel being burned in combustion. This would set a Check Engine Light.

Honda issued a recall on some 2005 Accord models due to a defective fuel pump relay. If the fuel pump relay fails, the car will stall or fail to start. For more information on this recall please click here»

The clock light has a tendency to burn out.

Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car. The water will usually leak onto the driver's or passenger's head when the car turns a corner.

Accords powered by the V6 engine had a defective timing belt tensioner that could result in excess "slack" in the timing belt. This could cause premature timing belt failure, which could result in serious engine damage.

In colder climates, coolant can leak from the connecting pipe.

A faulty gasket can cause coolant seepage from the water passage near the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve. Replacing the gasket should correct this coolant leak.
