    If you've done valve adjustments before on any engine you should have
    no problem with the Accords. The exhaust valves may be a bit tight by
    105K. I used a FelPro gasket set and they worked well.

    A problem with the V6 is that the idler pulley bolt is under the water
    pump weep hole. If the pump leaked then the bolt is likely to seize. I
    don't doubt some V6s still drive around with an old idler.

    Did the dealer replace both pulleys and the pump as well? If they
    charged you $780 then the water pump, three oil seals, tensioner
    pulley, idler pulley should all have been replaced along with the
    timing and drive belts.

    They changed the water pump, belts and seals as part of the job. They also
    replaced the drive belt tensioner (bearing noise) for an extra $80. Don't
    know about the idler pully so my guess is that it wasn't changed.

    Do you mean sports betting? I have been doing this for a long time. It seems to me that the main thing here is to find a reliable bookmaker. I can advise you this option https://registration.info.ke. I have been using this bookmaker for a long time and am very pleased with its work. It seems to me that it is very convenient. Try
