Question about 1997 Honda Accord
There is an ABS sensor on each wheel. When you sprayed the WD 40 on it you probably cleaned it so as it would give a correct reading, hence the check engine light going away. The noise you seem to have cured straightening the heat shield away from the exhaust may have been caused by that.
It is possible your engine mounts have deteriorated and allowing the engine to shift. It may have just been too close to the heat shield. On the ABS sensor, the wiring harness plug in sometimes needs to be cleaned and you may have accomplished just that. I certainly would be careful about putting any lubricant close to the brake pads or shoes. Brake material can absorb liquids and cause you a braking failure on that wheel.
