Question about 1993 Honda Accord

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.

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.

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.

Have you had the master cylinders replaced? Mine made this exact noise and they replaced the master cylinder.

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.
