2002 Honda Accord Question: Timing belt off diagnosis
First thing I would check is engine vacume....if its running below spec. that would be an indication that the cam timing could be off. The next best thing if vac. is low is remove timing covers and check cam timing. - milesauto
if its variable valve timing you will get a ck eng light or do compression test. you may have to pull timing cover to look at marks. also as stated low vac - globalhelper
IS YOUR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON YET?.....HAS YOUR CAR EXPERT FRIEND PUT A VACUUM GUAGE ON IT YET? HAVE YOU BROUGHT IT TO A SHOP (OTHER THAN A 'REPUTABLE NATIONAL CHAIN') FOR DIAGNOSIS.YOUR OTHER POSTING HAD THE ANSWER THE FIRST TIME. THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IS 'YES'. - ziptie12
Today my engine light came on and towards the end of my commute (45 miles) the car started bucking upon acceleration (twice it happened). Is it a timing belt issue, faulty spark plug?
