Question about 2006 Honda Accord 2.4

1 Answer

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 front area. I had the tire replaced for the tire agent said it was cupped. The noise still is there. The noise increases with speed. Many have said a CV joint or a wheel bearing. How do you tell for sure?

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.

SOURCE: How do I diagnose a loud whining noise from the

It sounds like it is def. the wheel bearing. If you can get it on a hoist and let it down with something to stop one side of vehicle at a time and let other side spin freely you will likely be able to determine which side. Or if you have no hoist, jack up vehicle one side at a time and spin wheel listen for growling and also move tire in and out to check for looseness.

SOURCE: Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?

it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Testimonial: "Rotating the tires didn't seem to change the noise. They are rotated and balanced every 5000 miles. There's still about another year's tread left. "

SOURCE: Noise and vibration from right side wheel area.

Sounds like a possible wheel bearing failure. Jack that wheel up and grab the tire at the top and bottom and shake/yank it hard - you should have basically no movement out of it. If you shake it and find looseness, that's a bad wheel bearing.

Where is the thermostat located on the 1998 accord ex 4cyl? I have noticed the temp gauge rising repidly in only a 1-3 mile drive, I thought the thermostat may not be opening and wanted to change it.


Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. The place where the hose mates the engine is the thermostat housing, and of course, the thermostat is inside it. Another reason for rapid temperature increase is that the electric radiator fans are not turning on when the engine reaches normal operating temperature.

I have 203 Honda accord EX v4. it reached 80000 miles. Is there any big maintenace that i have to do at 80k. Or Just oil change is good enough??


I think a lot Honda's require the timing belt to be changed around 80,000 to 100,000 miles. This something that you should not ignore, if the belt breaks the valves will hit the pistons and cause major damage.
