Question about 2008 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Rattle noise when starting my 2008 Honda accord.... Hear strumming somewhat rattle noise also while driving at times... Do you know what this could be? Called the dealership and they said that they cannot give an accurate reading if lights aren't on and it would cost $50 just to look under the hood when lights aren't on, but still couldn't guarantee the problem.

    Thanks a lot... Going to have this checked tomorrow. I was told that it was my engine, then my starter then a belt then the oil pump. I don't much about cars, but I hate wasting money and I've done that twice already.

Sounds like you may have a exhaust heat shield loose or broken

SOURCE: noise under hood like rattling sound

Try checking the heat shields on the exhaust pipe up front under the car. Alot of times they will loosen up, and begin to rattle. You can ither remove them, or try to clamp them.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Rattle/Vibration from front of vehicle when idling at stop

Hi and welcome to FixYa. Please try this:
GO out to the car, and lift up on the hood. Does it raise a bit and rattle? If so;
Open the hood, and look at the perimeter of the front radiator support. You will see 2 small rubber thingys, that look like that they are screwed onto the metal that is holding the radiator. Unscrew them a little, and close the hood. Pull up on the hood and see if the rattle goes away. If not, repeat unscrewing the rubber things until the lift disappears.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.

SOURCE: engine or transmission knock / rattle upon

I had the same problem on my 2006 Lucerne and it was the engine mount located on the front of the vehicle behind the radiator.

When I first start my 2008 Honda Accord I hear a rattle sound under the hood after a few minute it stop


There are some good suggestions made on the Honda Accord forum: http://honda-tech.com/forums/honda-s2000-5/engine-rattling-when-cold-2444799/ Some say it could be chain tension and some say related to exhaust since the noise goes away when the car warms up.

I hope I have helped you!

My 1989 Honda Accord is pushing oil out of valve cover into air cleaner. Motor Shot or some kind of intake issue giving pressure where there shouldn't be any? Makes the car run poorly when warm stalls out...


Could be a plugged PCV, or you are having excessive blow-by, oiling getting past the rings and out of the cylinders into the intake. I'd check the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation), shake it, you should hear somewhat of a "rattle" coming out of it. If not it's plugged up and needs replaced. Should be in a 3/8 size hose, or in the valve cover.
