Question about 2001 Honda Accord

1 Answer

My 2000 Honda Accord is very loud upon acceleration. It's not the exhaust or the muffler. I know it has something to do with the manifold. Can you tell me in more detail what it could be? Thank you

    My 2000 Honda Accord EX has the same problem. It is not really a knocking but it sounds like a Mack truck. More on acceleration. Also like a "wheezing" sound.

Hi what type of noise is it is it an exhaust blow or a metal vibrasion if its a blow it will be a manifold gasket [either to the exhaust to manifold or manifold to head] possible crack in manifold if its a metal vibrasion it will be the manifold tin cover burned through where it bolts on

What causes slow acceleration wit very loud exhaust noise

I would check for a large exhaust leak, somewhere between where the exhaust manifolds attach to the engine heads to the muffler. Since you had the heads done, I would inspect the connections between the exhaust manifold & heads, the manifolds and the down/flex pipe, and the oxygen sensor housings.

My toyota echo 2000 is in great shape but if start it run or accelerate it then its too loud.... but we check the muffler has no leak...

check for a crack in the manifold to exhaust pipe connection
to allow the engine to move ,there is normally a flexible piece of exhaust pipe in a stainless steel braid that cracks and allows exhaust sound out especially on acceleration
could be even broken at the manifold connection at the flange

Loud muffler manifold pipe

It costs nothing to remove the ignition key and then the car won't make any kind of noise...

Have you ever heard the saying "a cobbler's son is the worst shod?" This is true to a great extent but would a man allow his wife to drive around in a car with an exhaust leak knowing how dangerous exhaust gas is to the car occupants, especially if the leak was a quick inexpensive fix?

By being dropped low I assume you mean it has lowered suspension. If that work had been competently carried out it wouldn't contribute to the annoying noise though it is likely to make the exhaust more vulnerable to damage.

While an exhaust and the attachments are relatively simple in theory, in practice due to corrosion, damage and erosion those attachments can be difficult and time consuming to remove.
You need the opinion of an experienced person after he has seen under the car.

1997 honda accord loud buzz near engine when accelerator pressed?

Sounds like either: 1) A exhaust heatshield is loose. They're simply thin metal guards around your muffler/CATS. If you find one loose, remove it or have it welded back on. 2) Broken motor mount. This is serious and requires pulling the engine from the car. If a motor mount is broken, the engine wont sit right and cause multiple vibrations. Hope this helped!

Weird noise when accelerating.

almost sounds like a clogged catalytic converter, hard to say not knowing the miles and how long since any maintenance and what was done.

How to fix a 1992 honda accord catalytic converter? What does it look like and where is it on the car?

It is located beneath the vehicle and is attached to the exhaust pipe coming from the engine. It resembles a muffler and has your O2 sensor attached to it. It would be located more towards the front of the vehicle versus the muffler which is in the rear.

Loud noise when press on the gas

see if te noise is there when stationary. if so hold the revs around 1500 to 2000 rpm if it rattles around that, then it is the heat sheild on the down pipe section thats broken free.

93 Honda Accord Black Smoke When Accelerating

You have gone past the operating parameters of the computer sensors that measure air flow and manifold pressures There are many websites that deal with honda mods like yours, and likely you will find a cure there. I know there is a map sensor modification that can be made on Jeeps with the same items you have added, likely yours can be done as well. Try google and just type in honda forums and see what comes up.
