I don't think v-tec was avaible in 1988 Well the problem you're going to run into while looking for a drain plug on an 88' vTec engine is..... they did not make a vTec block in 88', they made vtec in 92 or 94 in the f22 and f23a blocks, sohc VTEC. Sorry, maybe you should stick to carbeurators and 2.o non vtec thrills, you couldn't handle the Bseries BEOUCH
where is the coolant drain plug on the engine block of Honda ACCORD 2.4 2006
Freeze plugs on a 93 Honda Accord are located along the front and sides of the engine block. They are designed to prevent the engine from being cracked in the event the coolant completely freezes.
Screwed onto the engine block.
Remove the oil pan drain plug to drain the oil. Remove the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant.
A block heater for a Honda Accord helps to quickly raise the temperature of the car to the proper heat level. This allows for a quicker engine start-ups.
It is on the rear of the engine block above the drain plug.
It does not have a block heater.
Mounted on engine block inside the oil pan.
Had the same problem on my 1991 accord. Replace the thermostat, gasket, and radiator cap. Also, get a gallon of coolant if your current coolant has been in there for more than three years. The thermostat is in the engine block. Simply drain coolant, remove the radiator hose from the engine - the hose that goes from the bottom of the radiator into the engine. There may also be a small spount that bolts into the block, remove the bolts and there is the old thermostat.
Its job is to block the flow of coolant to the radiator until the engine has warmed up. When the engine is cold, no coolant flows through the engine. Once the engine reaches its operating temperature (generally about 200 degrees F, 95 degrees C), the thermostat opens. By letting the engine warm up as quickly as possible, the thermostat reduces engine wear, deposits and emissions.
The crankshaft sensor on a 2 door Honda Accord with a 3L V6 engine is located on the side of the engine, near the oil filter. It screws into the side of the block and outputs the loading of the crankshaft to the vehicle's computer.
The Coolant Drain Plug for a 1997 Honda Accord LX 4cyl is at the bottom of the Radiator on the left side, if you were facing the Vechiel. It if stock it looks like a Black Medal Wingnut, unless different Drain Plug was put in by previous Owner. The block drain is an 8mm plug next to the oil filer on a 94 Accord LX 2.2L. 94-97 might be the same. There is a 10mm plug near the oil filter also, but it contains oil... I know. I have tried to remove my coolant block drain plug but without success so far... It is torqued! hw
