d16a engine

Engine Honda D16A

D16A engines are 4-cylinder in-line gasoline engines. The first unit of the line was released in 1986, and the production of internal combustion engines of this family was discontinued in 2007. The cylinder block is made of aluminum. The gas distribution mechanism provides for one camshaft at the top of the cylinder head, mainly with four valves per cylinder. Power type – injection (ZC carburetor).

d16a under the hood
This engine is a compact high power unit with an aluminum cylinder block, single camshaft and VTEC. The threshold speed is 7000 rpm, and VTEC turns on when it reaches 5500 rpm. The timing is driven by a belt, which must be replaced every 100,000 km, there are no hydraulic lifters.

It was the D16A that became the prototype of all subsequent Honda engines in this family, which, while maintaining dimensional and volumetric characteristics, received a significant increase in power over time.

Of the most discussed problems among owners is the vibration of the engine at idle, which disappears at 3000-4000 rpm. Over time, engine mounts wear out.

Flushing the nozzles will also help to remove the effect of engine vibration in excess of the norm, however, each time it is not worth resorting to chemicals for pouring directly into the tank – it is better to periodically clean the fuel distributor at the service station with the necessary equipment.

Like many engines, especially injection engines, the D16A is sensitive to fuel quality.
