Question about 2001 Honda Civic

1 Answer

We have a 2001 Honda Civic (114K). We just bought it and noticed that when it's driving it's very quiet, but when we stop (say at a stop light) and the engine is idling, we hear a ticking that is pretty consistent (kind of sounds like a card in the spokes of a bicycle). What is very odd is that if you turn the wheel it will go away, but if you straighten the wheels again it eventually comes back. Also when you press the accelerator it goes away again. Any ideas?!

Have a specialist check out the power steering pump as it sounds like the pressure relief valve in the pump is intermittent and causing the noise.

SOURCE: Honda Accord steering vibration

this sounds like an issue with the power steering rack and pinion unit, poss one of the internal O ring seals leaks when cold, try using LUCAS oils power steering conditioner, it is the only one I know of that really works, also I would recommend you flush the power steering fluid before you add this product.

SOURCE: My 2002 honda civic has a steady clicking noise

sounds like rockers need adjustment or timing belt or even the timing belt has split and frayed causing a slapping noise on the engine components as upon acceleration will cause such a noise happened to me a few times before as well ..open hood and visually inspect ....then start engine if nothing is seen and locate the source of noise this way just keep your hands etc away from moving parts

SOURCE: 1994 honda civic 1.5 16v stalling after pressing accelerator from idle

Another place to look is your IAC, or Idle air control valve. It is bolted to the back of the intake manifold, and can be removed and cleaned. It is usually the cause of most Honda Idle problems.

Check thermostat first. Maybe not the problem but new thermostat and housing gasket are very cheap and with this many miles it wouldn't hurt to install new one anyway. Just a little labor.

HONDA CIVIC 2001 rear brakes put on new brakes they dont have a short shoe for emergancy brake i have adjusted them they make a light clunking noise and brand new drums on the rear this car is driving me...


Hi, When you adjust them they should have a light drag as the wheel spins. The E brake should be the same on both sides. As for the noise I hope you bought the OE (original equipment) brake shoes. The other brands will squeal. Good Luck
