Engine Honda H22A

Engine Honda H22A under the hood

The 2.2-liter Honda H22A engine was produced at an enterprise in Japan from 1991 to 2002 and was installed on sports modifications of the Accord model or the popular Prelude coupe. The motor was offered in a couple of versions: less powerful with a black cover and more powerful with a red one.

The H22 engine belongs to the “H” series of motors produced by Honda Motor in 1991-2001. The family is very reminiscent of the “F” series, but they are definitely more competently designed, differ in power, dynamics and force. It was supposed to install the engine on the top-end Honda cars. Motors quietly “run out” of 250 thousand km, almost do not cause problems during operation. True, inexpensive tuning is not provided here: the designers have pulled the maximum out of the possible.

The H-series also includes an internal combustion engine: H23A.

The engine was installed on:

  • Honda Accord 5 (CD) in 1993 – 1997;
  • Honda Accord 6 (CG) in 1997 – 2002;
  • Honda Prelude 4 (BA8) in 1991 – 1996;
  • Honda Prelude 5 (BB) in 1996 – 2001.

Disadvantages of the Honda H22A engine

  • These engines are very reliable, but they are often criticized for progressive oil consumption.
  • Also, oil likes to ooze from gaskets, seals, plugs and a pressure sensor.
  • Sometimes the car starts to react badly to the gas pedal due to electrical glitches.
  • More often than not, antifreeze leaks occur here due to the fault of another burst tube.
  • Since there are no hydraulic lifters here, the valves will have to be adjusted every 40,000 km.
