It could be a wheel bearing. Usually the noise is worse when turning and sounds like a chain dragging. Look under the car and see if the rubber boot on the inside of the tire is leaking grease. If so, it is almost certainly a wheel bearing.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord Lx I just got with no manual . Which gear is for driving?


D4 is where you want to spend most of your time as this is the overdrive gear. About the only time you will need to run in D3 is if you are climbing steep grades or, if equipped with a tow kit, pulling a load.

Honda civic automatic transmission work


Check all trans sensors if it’s high mileage and fluid has not been changed regularly then you can bet a complete $2,000-$3,500 rebuild is due!

What gear can I used for highway D3 or D4


use d4. d4 is for normal driving. d3 is to down shift the transmission in case you wanna pass. use d3 only if you want to down shift because if you leave your car in d3 on the highway, it doesnt allow the 4th gear to engage, causing your engine to run at higher revs, not only wasting more gas but also making your engines life last less. hope this helps. if you need more help, let me know. goodluck

How to Drive Auto Transmition 30 km Speed D3 Or D4


some people will tell you that d3 is for town and d4 for the open road,that is totally wrong.D3 is for engine braking when going down a mountain(saves the engine/gearbox doing too many changes)so leave it in D4 for everyday use.....also saves you fuel..

2003 honda civic you drive on the street with D or


Drive the vehicle in "D". The D selection is the overdrive. You can consider the overdrive as a fourth gear. The D3 is simply third gear, and if driven in D3, the transmission will never shift into overdrive when needed.

96 civic speedo jumps around when accelerating and auto trans wont downshift when in d3 and d4 but can be manually put in to 2nd ...when in d3/d4 and i floor it the car just surges up and down cel. is on...


as for the speedo issue, check your distributor. Make sure the wires(the ones that power the distributor) are not exposed or freyed. replace the distributor cap and rotor if you haven't done so in a while. As for the tranny, check your fluids after the vehicle has warmed up and on a level surface. A transmission filter may be need if you have'nt done it for over 50,000 miles or for the life of the car.
