Question about 1997 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Driving to my bf house my tire popped on the highway and knocked my wires loose to where they laid on my tire. I didn't notice that the wires were hanging until I had to go to work. we tried to keep the wires from touching the tire. I made it home with no problems. Later on the same day went back to my car and it wouldn't crank. lights on the dash worked, and the headlights worked It also turned over many times. It just never cranked. my battery was taken out and another was put in and it still had no life. no dash lights, and not headlights. no noise as I turned the key switch to on. oh. I found a broken wire. I have no clue what it is...... yeeah. I need help!

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

First check wheel bearing. Jack front end up lifting tires off ground and see if the wheel moves by pulling on the sidewall part of wheel from top and pushing bottom towards the car does this back and forth if there is play, wheel bearing could need replaced. Take tire off and check for loose brakes, loose calipers, loose dust shields , etc. everything except rotor should be tight.

Got a 96 gmc nd i have a small hissing sound come from the engine while driving

First thing I would look for is a vacuum line leak. Engine heat can make lines brittle or something like fuel or oil on lines not made for it will weaken those lines causing cracks, breaks, etc. Also a line could just not be connected (knocked loose during maintenance and missed). Sometimes these will affect performance but not always, and you didn;t mention anything other noticed issues. I'd check all hose connections of any kind as well.

60mph speed vibrations: have your tires checked. They may be out of balance. One way to tell is to run your hand flat over the tread surface as you go around the tire. other than the space between the treads, you should feel a relatively smooth tire. If you notice raised treads, lumpiness or uneveness in treads then you may need to change tire. Have suspension checked. As for the floor board knock, have your motor and transmission mounts checked.
