    I'm hoping our cleanmpg resources can help me track down this answer. Is there a compatible EBH for my '99 Civic? The stock 08T44-S01-100 is discontinued and unavailable.

    I can't confirm but I don't believe there is a difference in the plug diameter or thread size between the stock/unavailable 08T44-S01-100, 08T44-S5B-100 ('01-'05 Civic) or 08T44-SV4-100 ('00-'03 Insight & '00-'02 Accord). Can anyone confirm? Desperately seeking a compatible EBH.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Stephen, good to see you again.

    As far as I know the 1st gen Insight EBH is 400W. I just had one installed and it brings the coolant temp up to the same level as the 400W EBH in my Elantra.

    Sean - thanks for confirming that your EBH is 400W. I won't waste any more time and order the standard one.

    Jud - It's good to be participating again. I appreciate your 'welcome back'.

    Ok, now I can't find the part. I've attempted to order it through 2 different websites that show it available only to find that it isn't. Does anyone know of a compatible and available EBH for my '99 Civic EX? Again the original Pt# is 08T44-S01-100.

    More checking leads me to believe that there isn't a difference in the plug diameter or thread size between the stock/unavailable 08T44-S01-100, 08T44-S5B-100 ('01-'05 Civic) or 08T44-SV4-100 ('00-'03 Insight & '00-'02 Accord). Can anyone confirm? Desperately seeking a compatible EBH (not Suzanne-sorry Madonna). We've had below freezing temps at night here in Chicago! :(

    Anyone have suggestions or connections I could ask? Please point me in the right direction. I'm stumped.

    Good find but just like the other 7 places I tried - "Honda has discontinued this part and it is unavailable". "No there isn't another model listed that would be compatible."

    I must say this is most frustrating!!! :mad:

    Thanks for looking Sean. I just can see going the winter without an EBH!

    Eureka I've found it!!! :woot:

    A very helpful NAPA employee found their part number for my car (6053132) & then printed me the list of all the compatible vehicles it fits. Napa's EBH costs $50 but checking on some of Honda parts sites I can find it for as low as $22 (08T44-S10-100).

    Here is the link to the printout http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/9tpwNnB41QcxxIEaR0DMNg?feat=directlink
    Sorry for the poor quality. I took the picture with my phone. I'll upload a scanned doc when I get to work Monday.

    Overview of the compatible list is that the EBH fits:

    Civics 92-02
    1.5 L
    1.6L
    1.7L

    Accords 90-02
    2.2L
    2.3L
    2.7L V6
    3.0L V6

    CRV 97-02
    2.0L
    2.4L

    It also fits Prelude, Odyessy, Passport, S2000 & DelSol. Plus several Saturns, a Saab, a GrandPrix & a Caterra! Please review the actual list to confirm compatibility as there are several engine models of the same size.

    So the discontinued EBH 08T44-S01-100 can be replaced w/:
    08T44-S10-100
    08T44-S5B-100
    08T44-SV4-100
    Along with several others. I hope others find this information helpful also.


    Edit:
    I found the least expensive online price was the 08T44-S10-100. Ordered it today for $31.52 shipped. I'll be installing my EBH this weekend. :)
