Question about 2001 Honda Accord

2001 Honda Accord wheel

Had this car about 3 weeks now. 94,007 miles on it. the right front wheel had a rubbing noise yesterday, today I drove it about 10 miles total. It sounded like a flat with a loud noise . When I got it back home the tire was hot & the hub cap. It smelled hot too. Our first time owning a Honda so wondering what could be wrong besides maybe brakes (no squealing though) Could it be anything major like drum, calipers etc?
Thanks for your help. luke

    Thanks for your help. It was the brakes. Seems the right front wheel was the only thing working for brakes& doing all the work for stoping the car.. Ended up taking it to the garage, the mechanic showed us the rotors, calipers & brakes weren't moving at all. A lot of money for only owning it for 3 weeks.

    Anyway thanks for your help.

You may have a badly warn hub bearing
if you lift the car up on the right and push the wheel in and out,if it is play that should be the problem if not check the brake pads

OK, let me be more specific on the front noise on my 2006 Honda Accord, EX, 4cyl. I have 80000 miles and about 3000 miles ago, I started to hear a noise , which I believed was coming from the driver side...

While driving and with radio off, listen to the noise. Find a road that is clear on which you can drive without any traffic. Drive at a constant speed and make light shifts to the left and right, by doing this, the weight of the vehicle will shift to the apposite side of the steering wheel to which you turn.
When you turn to the left, the weight goes to the right (passenger side) wheel, if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
When you turn to the right, the weight goes to the left (driver side), if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
If the noise does NOT go away, then you may have bad CV's.
Another way to check is by lifting and securing in jack stands. Vehicle in neutral and with your hands, rotate wheel with one hand. Other hand place on suspension component. Spring of strut. If you feel slight vibration, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
With vehicle on jack stands, one hand on top of wheel and other on bottom, try to see if you can move the wheel in and out which may be a had CV.

Cv joint and boots

Hi Wendy Ann,
Hard to give an exact diagnosis when I can not hear the noise myself. Generally, a bad CV joint will make a clicking sound when you turn a corner. From what you describe, it sounds like you've been ignoring the problem for some time. Due to the mileage on your car, I would recommend that you change both front half axle assemblies. [There are two CV joints/boots on each half axle] This is a common problem on front wheel drive cars.

Do you happen to have plastic rim covers? An auto mechanic suggested that these can rub or oscillate in just the right way to make you think you have a permanent rock stuck in your tire treads. It drove me nuts! But sure enough, I removed the rim coves and there was no noise at all. I ended up putting the same ones back on again with double-sided tape (double layered) along the inside rim of the covers and this stopped the noise for some time. Alas, one winter later, I'm hearing noises again. I've pulled them off again this week, but with my black rims underneath, the van looks like some undercover cop car!

In some honda s the PISTON and the VALVE share the same space ,check if your honda does or not ,because you wil have to re build that motor if that happens,timing belts are at every 90,000 miles

Squeaking from wheel area

If you replaced the hub assembly did you make sure to lube your wheel and hub bearings? I would also try to lube that entire side of the car as well. Tie Rod ends can make a squeel as well so just make sure to grease anything in that general area. If it is a clunking noise or a squeeling when you turn it may be your axle shaft installed wrong and those little splines on the end can get rubbed off real fast causing heat and noise problems real fast. If all this checks you may want to look into a possible rack and pinion problem or maybe a steering gear. I would lubricate everything first though. Good Luck!
