Honda Accord

Hi,
I have a 1992 Honda Accord with a 4 cylnder engine. This is the first time I have owned a Honda and don't know much about it.

Can anyone tell me if this is the type of engine that requires periodic timing belt changes. And, if the belt breaks, is the engine likely to suffer damage. ie. valves hitting piston.

Thanks.

All honda engine I've seen use Belt driven cam shaft. And yes, when belt goes, you would have valves damage.

Yes, most Honda engines are interference. Change the water pump at the same time you do the timing belt. If the belt gets soaked with coolant from a leaky pump, it's finished. Also avoids double labor.

For all other maintenance, follow the maintenance schedule in the glovebox folder.
