    i have the same problem, but my transmission is an automatic....and I believe most shift parts are electronic....so is this the parking pahl, not dropping to engage fully, hence the grinding when put in reverse or park.

    D1,D2,D3 and D and neutral all work good, but shift into reverse and park, and chattering begins....it does not appear that reverse works at all..



    any suggestions, other than take to tranny shop or replacing the transmission?

If it drives forwards OK with no grinding noise then it is probably cable adjustment.
Unlike forward gears there is no synchronmesh on reverse therefore you need full clutch seperation. Check there is no slack in the cable at all.

If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?


cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

I have a scraping, or grinding sound when I accelerate. Its a 04 accord. I was told its not a brake issue. Any thoughts?


This could be a bad wheel bearing.
If it happens only in a turn, it could be a CV joint.
Some brake systems have a brake warning that scrapes on the disk to let you know. It could be bent or out of place.
Hope this helps.

93 Honda Accord; Manual transmission sounds like its grinding when you turn and go straight but when you put the clutch in it goes away. How long can I drive it til it stops?


This may be a bearing that has failed inside the transmission, when you take the load off it by putting in the clutch it quiets down. The noise could also be the CV axle joints, but that would be a clicking noise on turns under power light throttle. I suggest you drain some fluid from the transmission and see if it has metal filings in it.

I have a 1998 Honda accord lx 4 cylinder that makes a grinding noise up front only when driving, not while stopped. I have changed brake pads, rotors, calapers, cv joint, and wheel bearings. The tires are...


Is the sound constant with the speed of the vehicle or speed of the engine? Does applying the brakes or turning change the noise? Does the grinding sound like metal to metal contact?

GRINDING NOISE IN FRONT END


Sounds like wheel bearing or CV joint is shot at the best your brake pads are down to the metal

The car should be off the road as both sets of bearings can seize with dire consequenses and if it is your brakes !! need I say more

1991 prelude drivetrain problem


Wow, that's weird! If the speedometer is moving, but you aren't, then yes, something in the axle is not connected to the wheel. Were there any weird noises or symptoms before this happened? Either the cv joint is completely shot (u should have heard noise when turning a long time before this) or the spline could be stripped, but that is something I haven't heard of. If the clutch was shot, the engine would rev, but speedo is connected to transmission, so the speedo would not work if the clutch didn't. Let me know if anything was going on before this happened, I have a 91 Prelude (2nd since 1994, love it). countrycurt0

the cv joints likely do not affect the transmission. a cv is bad when you can hear it clicking while making a turn. when they begin to click it is time to replace them or else you will be stranded sooner than later. as for the grinding transmission, your options are to have tran rebuilt or replaced, or park on a hill. gears and metal are grinding and tearing themselves to pieces. if repair is not an option, then do not use reverse, after all, its not where we have been, but where we are going that counts.
