Honda Accord 2003 - Engine and steering vibration

Help...When accelerating through 60mph my accord suddenly vibrates and shakes through the front drivers side wheel - this vibration is passed through the steering column and pedals. Above approx 65mph this vibration stops. The vibration is not present when braking.

Both front tyres have been balanced but the problem still exists. My car has done 88000 miles

Is this going to be expensive????!!!

My 2003 honda accord was doing this too. The problem is the inner CV axle bearings. The fix is to replace both CV axles. When you choose your CV axle choose a new one not a reman, there are known problems with used CV axles. It's not a hard job. It took me 1hr to do both sides on a lift.

You might to have a tire shop check the wheel for roundness, not balance. A tire can be balanced and be out of round, causing the shaking you describe. On front wheel drive cars, the wheel/hub assembly may be bad, which a good tire shop can tell you if it is. Can't say if it will be expensive, the hub is relatively inexpensive. Labor will probably be the deal-breaker.

Did you find a solution for this problem? My car is having the exact problem at this moment. The Honda dealer said it was the front axles, but my personal mechanic he said it was the transmission. I dont know what to do at this point. Please advise. Thank you!

You might have to check the hub on which the engine is resting. It happened to me once on my toyota camry and it was found that hub was broken.

Question 1. My 2003 Honda accord vibrates especially when the AC is on and its on drive or neutral gear, but it does not vibrate/shake when its in motion.


Hello,
It sounds as if your Automatic Transmission is having issues. The first thing to do is check the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF). This is covered in the Owner's Manual (should be in your glovebox??).

If the level is low, it will cause issues. Your ATF should be serviced every 30,000 miles.

What could make the steering of my Honda accord 1993 vibrate each time l engage d gear to drive this get worst when d ac is on the vibration is more noticeable.


Sounds like bad engine/trans mounts. The more load you put on it the more vibration engine makes. If mounts are bad, vibration will transfer to body and steering

Honda accord 2003 EX engine vibrate when in drive and when the aircondition is on


If your having an engine vibration while driving and it seems worse with the air conditioning is on, my initial thought would be to have your engine mounts checked. Typically, the vibration you're describing is due to broken engine mounts.

When accelerating from approximately 0 - 20 mph


My immediate quick test would be to move the front tires to the back (and backs to front, of course) then try it out. If the vibration is still there but feels like it's coming from somewhere else (vibration could feel like it's in in steering wheel or seat), you've got a broken belt or bent rim (wheel). Don't want to get your hands dirty? Get all 4 wheels balanced -5 to 10 bucks per wheel.

Around 55 my 03 honda accord starts to vibrate and stops around 63, but also it will stop if i let of the gas that is what throws me off.


Check wheel balance and for out-of-round or lumpy tires. Also, check the CV joints on the ends of the front axles for wear. Shake all four wheels (off the ground) for bearing slop, and look at the tread wear pattern on all four wheels. Poor shocks or struts can cause vibration. Worn out ball joints in the front end also cause problems as can loose tie rod ends and loose ends on the anti-roll bar.

Please My Honda Accord 2003 model jerks and also do viberates


It sounds like something is loose...That may be causing your vibrating problems with the engine. You need to life the hood and grab anything that should be bolted down grab it and gently but firmly pull on it. If it moves then you will see it right then and there. Or it can be on the inside of the motor also. The jerking can be from bad fuel....

Enging vibrating at idle


1) It is very possible your engine mounts can be worn, but

2) the vibration you feel may be also due to the idle itself degrading to the point that the car is shaking. Does the engine sound like it is getting ready to die? what is the engine rpm when you feel the vibration? You may just have a dirty throttle body. In this case, clean the throttle body plate and bore and the problem will go away.

3) did the problem seem to come on suddenly or gradually, if gradually, you may just need some plugs and/or wires, and/or cap/ignition rotor, etc. (a tune up)

4) Also, do you only feel the vibration when the AC system is on?

5) there are some other reasons for abnormal engine vibration at idle, but the above are some of the most common, and simpler to repair.

All the best with the repair!
