Honda Engine Worth Repair
I got a 2013 Honda Accord V6 Touring with 166K miles. I had a valve adjustment scheduled, but the day before I gave the car to my mechanic it started making a ticking noise. He checked everything out, and said my lost motion assembly is clapped on cylinder 1 and recommended I’d replace them on all 6 cylinders. He also noticed a part of my camshaft and rocker arm is also damaged by cyl 1 and recommends to replace them as well. Coincidentally, the parts are on national back order 😂 I guess Honda’s been having problems with these V6s? Guess it makes too much sense to issue a recall for uneven engine wear 🙃 I told my mechanic to throw in full belt service and new coolant while the engines torn apart because I’m coming up on that as well, and he quoted me at $3800. As someone who services my cars religiously, is it worth the money to repair?
So much for the glory of AFM.
