Grinding noise and smoke coming from 93 accord coupe when startin

Car. Stopped after a couple of seconds. The noise and smoke came from driver's side in engine. The noise stopped and hasn't returned since. This happened Thursday evening, it's now Sunday morning. Seems to be running fine now. Is there something that I should be looking out for in the near future with this problem? Should I still drive it? Will I need to get a new car soon?

It is possible that your waterpump is going out.

I have a 93 honda accord and when i am backing up i hear a bad metal grinding noise. What could cause that. Also while i'm driving my wheels make a squealing noise which is very annoying. anyone got any...


It could be your brake splash shield that's slightly bent into and rubbing up against the brake rotor, causing that noise in reverse and forward. It will make a different noise going in different direction. Have it checked and if necessary simply bent back into place.

2002 honda accord coupe stuck in park. did this a couple days ago but eventually went into drive. now it will not come out of park after attempting many times and turning off and restarting car.


could be the brake switch. unless the brake is pressed it wont release it from park. you can manually put it in gears, theres a little cirlce or square access hole you gotta pry up and remove the plastic piece then push down with a screw driver

Doesn't want to keep running and some grinding noise when startin


From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:
Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.

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.

Harsh grinding noise while in gear and car won't drive!


Had the exact same thing in my 93 and it was the CV Axles - they have a C clip that hold them in place - sometimes the C clip and fail; sometimes you simply have to replace the CV Axles - much cheaper then a tranny; a good suspension shop should be able to diagnos w/o it costing you an arm and a leg.

Smoke around belt


the smoke is coming from the belt because a part has stopped turning ...you need to check which one it is... it could be the water pump...alternator ..a/c compressor...... power steering pump or the belt tensioner.... and your going to need a new belt

Smoke around belt and sparks on Pulley holding belt


Most likely AC clutch assembly. Have it checked & unplug wires to it, if necessary, to use temporarily, so that clutch doesn't engage.
