    1990 honda accord ex

    Got this car for free from a family member. I was told it didnt run and needed a clutch, it also has a bit of body damage. We went to go pull it out of the yard its been sitting in for almost 2 years, all of the brakes were locked up. Once we got it rolling we pulled it back to my house. Everything power worked but it wouldnt turn over so I had the starter tested. Came out good. So I took a jumper wire and jumped the starter and what do you know, fired right up and runs issue free even after sitting for so long. All power windows work, power locks and sunroof works, a/c works, ps and radio everything works. Got around to bleeding the brakes and its missing the pass. front caliper and they have a screw jammed into the line, but the brakes do work. Fired it up after we found the brake problem and drove it around the block. The car does not need a clutch or anything really. I'm guessing the stopped driving it because it wouldnt start. I also found a huge pile of service records in the glovebox, awesome! You really can't beat it for free. Anyways, heres some pics and a vid of it running.






    I've since cleaned it out a lot. I'll get some more pics tomorrow when its light out

    That's a sweet deal man, not too many miles on it either. What do you plan on doing about the starting issue? Think it could be a bad ignition switch or something?

    They say the contacts in these ignition switches are changeable. Im gonna take a look at it and see if their worn out if not, I'll just trace the signal wire from the starter to the ignition and look for problems. If I dont find anything i'm gonna end up running a new wire from the switch to the starter with an inline fuse.

    Nice car dude..... cant beat that price either. Stick your head up under the dash and look at the clutch pedal. There is a switch at the top that keeps the engine from starting if the clutch pedal is not deprssed. Hondas usually have a little plastic plug that goes into a small hole in the pedal assembly. The plastic becomes old and brittle and then falls out of the hole. If it is gone you will see the switch contact poking through the hole in the pedal.

    They just replaced the clutch switch and the little tab on the pedal, that was one of the first things I checked. It's in the service records too, as well as new driver and passenger cv axles!

    Little tip if the clutch switch pad is the problem - you can spend $20 or so at the Honda dealership and wait for the part - or superglue a penny there instead. We do it all the time at the shop - never wears out and you seriously cannot get a cheaper repair than $0.01

    a friend of mine just got a 4 door with 170k for 300. his dads friends didnt need it anymore. and theres not a thing wrong with it. but i still think you got a better deal. do you have any self service yards in your area where you can go snag your parts for cheap. or do you just plan to buy new ones.

    Hay E.. there is a new member near you. Look for him in the new-b section. He is looking to lower his truck.

    no luck yet. They have them on ebay but I'd rather not pay $200 plus for them. Its the same with all the jdm lights, intersection lights, rear fogs, one piece headlights. All on ebay, all $$$$. I've also been trying to find a legend coupe lip they line up to the accord bumper pretty well.

    Someone is taking much better pictures now a days. What did you get a new camera? Things are looking good man. Keep it up. The night time pictures are cool with the lens stars. I like the purple one. Now what the hell is that black thing behind the small door speaker?
