Engine Honda F18B

Engine Honda F18B under the hood

The 1.8-liter Honda F18B gasoline engine was produced by the company from 1993 to 2002 and was installed in the fifth and sixth generations of the very popular worldwide Accord model. The F18B motor is found in a single modification, however, with varying degrees of forcing.

The F18B engine is an injection version of the 1.8-liter F18 series engine that was produced by Honda. The power unit was one of the flagship in the line of Accord motors. The engine is distinguished by good parameters, simplicity, the absence of capricious electronic systems, recirculation and other things that will be used a little later to please environmental requirements.

The F-series also includes internal combustion engines: F20A, F20B, F20C, F22B and F23A.

The engine was installed on:

  • Honda Accord 5 (CD) in 1993 – 1997;
  • Honda Accord 6 (CG) in 1997 – 2002.

Disadvantages of the Honda F18B engine

  • Most of all, car owners complain about lubricant and coolant leaks;
  • After 100 – 150 thousand kilometers, the oil here also begins to be spent on waste;
  • The timing belt serves no more than 100 thousand km, and when it breaks the valve usually bends;
  • Due to contamination of the idle valve and the EGR valve, the engine begins to behave erratically;
  • Valve clearances need to be adjusted every 40,000 km, there are no hydraulic lifters.
