    Default Confused about few things with my Honda Accord 87

    Dear All,

    I have recently purchased a 87 accord (Mint condition 7/10) and i am bit confused about few things.


    1. how to figure out if the car is 1.6 or 1.8 liter?? cause there is a bilal gunj's memo slip on the back of the registration book which shows an engine block of A18A was purchased. Dude who sold me the car said its 1.6 i-vtec :-/
    My mechanic says it COULD be 1.8... on its book its mention 1299CC lol

    2. whenever i shift to a high or low gear there is a weird noise (engine knocking, rattling sound, etc), and this comes whenever i am on petrol. i even mixed hi-octane with the fuel but still same frustrated sound is coming wen engine is warm. and this sound is only for few seconds...specially it comes wen my foot gets heavy on the pedal

    (i also changed the timing belt..i have feeling that timing belt isnt adjusted properly thats y its knock knociking)


    3. And from where can i get a new or used WATER JACKET for this model.. (Kindly dont say bilal gunj)



    Hope you guys could help me out...

    Thanks!

    Bro I have accord 88 too, with automatic transmission, and its engine is also A18a and it is 1.8 liters engine not 1600cc, not 1300cc.
    And its carby engine, if you have non carby engine then confirm engine model from engine name plate and post back..

    Waisay engine ki performance kaisi hai? Cause I want to check pick on manual 1800.

    remove the head and measure the cylinder diameter and depth. e.g. if bore is 87mm and stroke is 84mm and the engine is 6 cylinders then we apply the calculation

    84 x (3.142 x [43.5 x 43.5]) /1000 x 6

    so we get 2996.5 cc - aka 3000cc
