That depends on if your Honda is fuel injected or has a cardeurator on it. If it has a carb then you can't read codes due to the fact that a carbbed model does not have a computer. If it is fuel injected then there is usually a blue two wire connector under the glovebox just inside the passenger door. You may have to dig for it. It may be taped to a wire harness and will not have anything plugged into it. When you find it, short the two wires together(a small custom bent paper-clip works perfectly), turn the ignition to the "run" position. Do not start the engine. And a "PGM" light should start flashing codes. Long flash for tens digit. Short flash for ones digit. Once the numbers repeat,you have all the stored codes. To clear codes after repair, just disconnect the neg. cable from the battery for approx 30 seconds.

Try the technical dept of your library. I just got the complete wiring diagram for my 88 accord.
I just had my alternator replaced on my 1990 Honda Accord and the final bill was $315.
Is it stalling? If not, dont worry about it, your fine. My 90 accord does that everyonce in a while but continues to run.
On a 88 accord DX there is 2 filters. 1 is left rear @ edge of wheel well and other is left side under hood @ firewall.
Bad relay? (points burned and not releasing)
Should be listed under the hood on a placard and in your owner's manual. More than likely it is .044.
depending on experience but i would say 3 to 4 hrs
Have a look at www.gates.com manufacturer of all kinds of belts including timing belts. Their website indicates that most Honda engines are interference engines. In a word, most likely it will damage the valvetrain if the belt breaks. exhaust valves bye-bye If you broke the timing belt on an 88 Accord, don't waste your money getting the engine fixed or replaced. You can purchase a 1192-1993 Accord for less money than you would spend repairing your 1988 Accord.
The standard 98 hp engine has a carburetor. The optional 16 valve SOHC 120 hp engine was fuel injected.
80w 90 gear oil available at any car parts store.

No, the 88 and 93 are a different chassis.
