Check the engine mounts are good and not torn off the mount plate.. Remove each plug lead in turn and if the noise goes then it will be either piston slap or big end bearing. Have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal damage and change the transmission oil and filter and have the bands and clutch pack adjustment checked.

Noise coming from the right half-shaft inside the transaxle


could be the wheel bearing, first check to see if the belts have shifte in tires, feel the sidewalls of tire for a buldge, also secondly switch front tire with back tire, could be the rim... if noise transfers to back then its rim..

Hello! I would suggest the ignition switch is the problem...Not the lock cylinder but the switch itself...If, to your knowledge it has never been changed, I would do so now...I can give the part number but I'll need to know if vehicle is automatic...And does it have a center console shift...

Honda accord exr 1987 automatic trans.


It's hard to understand when you say it feels like a manual shift. Noise? Feel? I do know that the 87 auto trans does have a weak 1st to 2nd shift drum (as explained to me by my mechanic) that makes a grinding, elongated shift under heavy acceleration when it starts to wear. Under normal acceleration, 1st to 2nd shifts were normal (crisp, immediate). Since that day 8 years ago, I've avoided starting off to quickly, and so far have saved myself a tranny overhaul.
