Mysterious car noise

Hello, I have a 2005 Honda Civic. Only in cold weather, afer I warm up car, when I accelerate, I hear a noise that sounds like little tiny pebbles being poured into a tin can. It goes away after an hour or so. But lately, sometimes I hear a loud tin tapping noise, like a machine gun if you would, after warming up my car in the cold weather, but goes away as soon as I go around the block. It doesn't happen all the time. The car runs great. The pebble sound was heard within the first winter I got the car (i purchased in brand new). The tin tapping just this year.The car runs great all of the time and it never happens during the warm weather. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks so much for your quick response. I don't think it's the oil because it happened within nine months after I purchased the car and I faithfully have the oil changed. I've had the car since 2005 and it is now reaching 30,000 miles, not bad after 3 yrs and 8 months. Thanks again.

I think what your hearing is the exhaust shields heat up they make a tin noise like crackling when they get hot or cool off or you have a loose exhaust shield do you hear the noise after you turn the car off too? crackling as it cools?

Check the oil first, if it is low it will cause a host of noises in the engine.

It sounds like that may be the problem you have

My car is a Honda civic 1997 model,i had my upper engine support replaced and the timing belt but after installing it, i can hear a vibration sound everytime i accelerate the gas whiule in trhe neutrral...


I am afraid not. The water from the radiator never goes into the engine. Radiator is just there to keep the engine temperature Normal. That is to say that it keeps in cool because engines get very hot while driving the car. If you take out the water, it would overhead quickly and would eventually halt the engine. As for the vibration from engine, it because the supports of the engine aren't bolted together snuggly. So when you accelerate, the engine vibrates hard and then also shake up the supports and cause noise.

2005 civic ex special edition has cool air blowing out of vents in very cold weather....starts out warm but soon changes to cool and stays cool


Could be a couple things...

1. Bad Thermostat.
2. Bad Heater core.

The thermo is a easy fix if you're mechanically inclined. I would look at this first.

Noise coming from the rear end of my 2004 honda pilot it really only occurs during cold weather and after it warms up you hear it slightly


When does the noise occur, while driving only, or driving and idle, in gear, or in neutral and park? If it occurs all the time (while driving and at a stand still in cold weather) it could be the fuel pump. If it occurs only while driving, it may be a wheel bearing. Describe the noise (humming, grinding, whirring, etc), and what is the mileage on the Pilot? Answer my questions so I can fine tune my answer. Thanks!

Noise from engine or transmission cant tell


The sound could also be from the fuel pump. This comes on a cold engine. The way to sort it is to change your driving technique. Do not accelerate too much till the temp gauge starts showing the change. for the first minute or two if you do not accelerate too much then you may not hear the sound the rest of the day. Let the engine/fuel pump warm up a little and then you drive your normal self.
