Default Auto repair

Hello fellow Honda owners,

I live in Washington DC and I have a Honda accord lx 1997. If any one knows
where's there is a good auto repair shop in the District or close to the
District. Would you please send me the address. I am considering having my
transmission and timing belt check. And possible getting one or both of them
overhauled. If you use a good reasonable priced auto repair shop the can
help with these repairs. Please write. Thanks.

ED

I can't answer your original question, but if your timing belt has never
been done, get it to a shop right now and have it done. It is due, and if
it breaks, you will be very sorry.

It's a bit of a drive, but north of Balitmore is Schaefer and
Strohminger Honda (Bel Air, MD). While it is a dealership, they charge
reasonable prices...not too bad.

So if your car makes the drive...lol

For what it's worth, checking the timing belt is nearly worthless. They
tend to look like they're in great condition up to the point that they
fail. One of the most common failures is for the teeth to strip off the
belt down at the crank pulley gear. If you're going to get the timing belt
replaced, and you should based on either time or mileage if it's been either
90,000 miles or 6 years, then try searching for old posts in this newsgroup
at http://groups.google.com. The common recommendation is to replace the
water pump, timing belt tensioner, cam, crank, & balance shaft seals, and
valve cover gasket (however some folks replace the tensioner at every other
belt service but if there's a problem in between belts then the labor will
be the same as the whole belt job just for the tensioner). You can price
parts out online at
