Question about 1998 Honda Civic
Occasionally when in reverse, I hear a high pitch noise like a kid blowing a gazoo, (best I can describe it). It only does it once or twice then I cant get it to do it again to check and see what it is. The car has 130k miles on it. Just changed the timing belt and water pump. Brake pads look good. Transmission has good fluid level. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for yout time!
Hi there. When reverse is engaged and drive taken-up, the engine torques in a new direction and if you look under the bonnet of your Honda you will see many vacuum pipes and hoses. My bet is that one of these has an air leak which when reversing opens-up and gives you that sound you're hearing. So first thing to do is undertake a detailed check of each and every one of those vacuum hoses - you should be looking for cracking or any dislodgement. Hope this helps, Scottech
