Honda Motor Company is the largest Japanese manufacturer of automobiles, motorcycles, as well as lawn mowers, trimmer, generators and other power equipment. Honda thinks of themselves as a “Motor” manufacturer more so than an automobile manufacturer. Honda isn’t the largest manufacturer of automobiles in Asia. In fact, they are the 8th largest automobile manufacturer in the World and the 4th largest Asian automobile manufacturer behind Toyota, Hyundai Motor Group, and Nissan respectively. Even though Honda itself is the 8th largest automobile manufacturer in the world, the satisfaction and reliability people around the world have found with Honda engines cannot be measured.
Types of Honda Engines Available
The most popular displacement of a used Honda engine are the 4-cylinder models. Most of the “international” models such as the Civic, Accord, and the CR-V run on 4-cylinder engines. Other “international” models such as the Legend run on a 5-cylinder engine. Some Accords also run on 5-cylinder engines. These Accords tend to be newer and more powerful ones.
Honda is best known for their innovative VTEC engines they developed themselves. VTEC stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control which is simply a system in which to improve the efficiency of four-stroke combustion engines. The difference between VTEC and VVT (Variable Valve Timing) is the VTEC engines ability to change the camshaft profile or valve lift. The VTEC uses two camshaft profiles to be able to select between profiles.
