Question about 1993 Honda Accord

93 honda accord howling noise coming from engine

When I start the car and its still cold, it runs fine until it warms up. I get this howling noise coming from passenger side of the engine, oppisite side of the belts and pullys so I kinda ruled out water pump. I have no leaks of any kind and the car still runs good. I cant find any vacuum leaks with soapy water and stethescope. it started small, but now comes on as soon as the car warms up. its seams its coming from the vaccum control box area or right around throttle body and fire wall. the sound is like a heavy teapot noise that goes away when I accelerate or push on the gas, but soon appears again.

    I have the same problem. I get this howling sound coming from the passenger engine side in front especially when the car is idling. At higher rpm the howl is reduced. When putting my ear to the air filter box I can hear the howl with a higher pitch, but as coming further away.

Hi try taking the air filter pipe off the throttle body see if the butterfly spindle has no play in the spindle or the retaining screws that hold it to the spindle have not come loose just put your finger on the butterfly while its idling see if the noise goes if not just pinch the vacuum hose on the vacuum box see if noise goes or changes pitch yates210456

93 honda civic runs fine untill it get warm then it will jolt and loss power


have the cooling system pressure tested to 20 psi remove the spark plugs & see if any water/coolant comes out of the spark plug holes. You may have a cracked cylinder head or partially blown head gasket.

I have a 93 accord lx it starts right up when the engine is cold but after you drive it and it warms up it wont start up till it cools down. i'm thinkin its a problem in the distributor. any ideas?


Have your main power relay checked. It seems to fail when the car warms up and then starts to work again when the car is allowed to cool down.

Vibration at idle


it may be idle control sensor or a bad mas air flow sensor--maf sensor in otherwords. or could be engine misfire at cold temp. start. only time when cold? or does run better when warm? try warming engine to operating temperature before driving,if problem removes it's self after warm up,up grade gas to 93 octane for 1 tank full. then see if problem goes away. it's cold where you are right? if so the fuel needs to be at least midgrade 89 octane fuel because 87 octane fuel will not start your honda correctly at cold temps. in cold weather 93 or super gas octane will start ,no problem,low octane fuel sometimes gels, or freezes at low temps. if in warm climate, change the fuel filter, add fuel injector cleaner to your fuel tank[preferablly lucas fuel treatment] this will lube your fuel injectors and give better fuel mileage. thank you for choosing fixya.com

08 accord ex-v6 auto. engine vibration @ idle in park or (gear at stop) when engine is cold to warm until it fully warms. dealer states it's normal. dealer showed me another accord with similar shake.???...


I've got an 08 4cyl and it doesn't really have the vibration unless its really cold. Usually if I give it about 30 seconds...when the rpms start to come down, its barely noticeable.
