49. Valve Guide

mmmmmlmmam


1.

As illustrated, use a commercially available air-impact valve guide driver (A) modified to fit the diameter of the valve guides. In most cases, the same procedure can be done using the valve guide driver, 5.35 x 9.7 mm and a conventional hammer.


2.

Select the proper replacement guides, and chill them in the freezer section of a refrigerator for at least an hour.


3.

Use a hot plate or oven to evenly heat the cylinder head to 300 °F (150 °C). Monitor the temperature with a cooking thermometer. Do not get the head hotter than 300 °F (150 °C); excessive heat may loosen the valve seats.



4.

Working from the camshaft side, use the driver and an air hammer to drive the guide about 2 mm (0.08 in) towards the combustion chamber. This will knock off some of the carbon and make removal easier. Hold the air hammer directly in line with the valve guide to prevent damaging the driver. Wear safety goggles or a face shield.


5.

Turn the head over, and drive the guide out toward the camshaft side of the head.


6.

If a valve guide will not move, drill it out with an 8mm (5/16 in) drill bit, then try again.


NOTE: Drill guides only in extreme cases; you could damage the cylinder head if the guide breaks.


1. Valve Guide


1.

Take out the new guide(s) from the freezer, one at a time, as you need them.


2.

Apply a thin coat of new engine oil to the outside of the new valve guide.


3.

Install the guide from the camshaft side of the head; use the valve guide driver to drive the guide into the specified installed height (A) of the guide (B). If you have all eight guides to do, you may have to reheat the head.


Valve Guide Installed Height:

18.25-18.75 mm (0.7185-0.7382 in)



4.

Coat both the valve guide reamer, 5.5 mm and the valve guide with cutting oil.


5.

Rotate the valve guide reamer clockwise the full length of the valve guide bore.

Continue to rotate the reamer clockwise while drawing it from the bore.


7.

Thoroughly wash the guide in detergent and water to remove any cutting residue.


2. Valve Seal

48. Battery

1.

Install the battery (A) and the battery setting plate (B).


NOTE: Do not deform the battery setting plate by over-tightening the nuts.


49. Battery Terminal - Reconnection


NOTE: If the battery performs abnormally, test the battery.


1.

Clean the battery terminals.


2.

Connect the positive cable (A) to the battery.


NOTE: Always connect the positive side first.


3.

Connect the negative cable and the battery sensor (B) to the battery.


NOTE: To protect the battery sensor connector (C) from damage, do not hold it when installing the negative terminal.


4.

Apply multipurpose grease to the terminals to prevent corrosion.


50. Manual Shut-off Valve - Open (Natural Gas Model)

1.

Open the manual shut-off valve (A).


51. Fuel Supply System Leak - Inspection (Natural Gas Model)

Check for a gas leak if there is an odor coming from the vehicle. Compressed natural gas (CNG) can only be smelled, not seen.


1.

Open the hood and the fuel fill door.


2.

Connect a vacuum pump/gauge, 0-30 inHg, to the hose (A) from fuel pressure regulator P1, and apply 67.7 kPa (20.0 inHg, 508 mmHg) of vacuum.


3.

If fuel pressure regulator P2 does not hold vacuum, replace it before continuing to the next step.


4.

Inspect the fuel lines and hoses under the hood for kinks, abrasion, and other signs of damage.


5.

With the manual shut-off valve open, turn the ignition switch to ON (II), but do not start the engine.


6.

After the fuel pressure regulator shut-off solenoid valve/fuel tank internal solenoid valve operates for about 2 seconds, the fuel pressure in the fuel lines rises.


7.

Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).


8.

Repeat this two or three times.


9.

Within 1 minute, check for any damaged lines with a leak detector (A) (Snap-on Combustible Gas Leak Detector or Snoop Liquid Leak Detector (B)).



10.

If no damage was noticed during the inspection, turn the ignition switch to ON (II) for 2 seconds, then turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).


11.

Within 1 minute, check for a leak at the vent hose outlet inside the fuel pipe protector (A).


12.

If you detect a leak, remove the vent hose, and check the fuel lines and fittings at the in-tank solenoid valve and the join block with a leak detector.


13.

If you cannot find the leak, raise the vehicle on a lift, remove the under-floor cover.


14.

Inspect all the fuel lines under the vehicle, visually, and with a leak detector.


15.

If you still cannot find the leak, remove the rear seat, then check all fuel lines and fittings at the fuel tank and the fuel joint block.


52. Radiator Coolant - Replacement (Natural Gas Model)

1.

Follow the chart and pour coolant into the radiator up to the base of the filler neck.


NOTE:

Use Honda Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant Type 2, and if necessary add Honda Extreme Cold Weather Antifreeze/Coolant Type 2 (concentrate). Using a non-Honda coolant can result in corrosion, causing the cooling system to malfunction or fail.

Honda Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant Type 2 is a mixture of 50 % antifreeze and 50 % water. Honda Extreme Cold Weather Antifreeze/Coolant Type 2 is a 100% concentration coolant. Do not add water to either coolant.

If the vehicle is regularly driven in very low temperatures (below -22 °F ( -30 °C)), a 60 % concentration of coolant should be used.

53. Tire and Wheel-Installation, Front Right

mminmuan

1.

Install the right front wheel.


NOTE: Before installing the wheel, clean the mating surfaces between the brake disc and the inside of the wheel.


54. Warm Up The Engine

Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm without load (A/T in P or N, M/T in neutral) until the radiator fan comes on, then let it idle.


55. HDS DLC - Connection


1.

Connect the HDS to the data link connector (DLC) (A) located under the driver's side of the dashboard.


2.

Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).


3.

Make sure the HDS communicates with the vehicle. If it does not communicate, go to the DLC circuit troubleshooting.


56. Idle Speed - Inspection (Natural Gas Model)

NOTE:

Before checking the idle speed, check these items:


The malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) has not been reported on, and there are no DTCs.

Ignition timing

Spark plugs

Air cleaner

PCV system


Apply the parking brake, and make sure the headlights are off.


1.

Check the idle speed without load conditions: headlights, blower fan, radiator fan, and air conditioner off.


Idle speed should be: 670±50 rpm (in P or N)


2.

Let the engine idle for 1 minute with high electric load (A/C on, temperature set to max cool, blower fan on high, headlights on high beam).


Idle speed should be: 710±50 rpm (in P or N)


NOTE: If the idle speed is not within specification, do the PCM idle learn procedure. If the idle speed is still not within specification, go to the symptom troubleshooting.


57. CKP Pattern Clear/CKP Pattern Learn

1.

Select CRANK PATTERN in the ADJUSTMENT MENU with the HDS.


2.

Select CRANK PATTERN CLEAR, and clear the CKP pattern.


3.

Select CRANK PATTERN LEARNING with the HDS, and follow the screen prompts.


58. Ignition Timing - Inspection


1.

Jump the SCS line with the HDS.


2.

Connect the timing light to the No. 1 ignition coil harness.



3.

Aim the light toward the pointer (A) on the cam chain case. Check the ignition timing under a no load condition (headlights, blower fan, rear window defogger, and air conditioner are turned off).


Ignition Timing

8±2 ° BTDC (RED mark (B)) at idle


4.

If the ignition timing differs from the specification, check the camshaft timing. If the camshaft timing is OK, update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM, then recheck. If the system works properly, and the ECM/PCM was substituted, replace the original ECM/PCM.


5.

Disconnect the HDS and the timing light.
