You can tighten this up a bit by adjusting the plastic (or rubber) 'bumpers' directly under the hood toward the front of the vehicle. There should be two of them. To make them tighter, turn them counter-clockwise, both equally, a little at a time while checking the closed hood for tightness between turns. This should stop the constant bouncing around with the hood.

I hope this helps! :)

Windshield wiper motor not workingproperly


It could be that the nuts used to hold the wiper to the motor "shaft" are not tightened all the way. It is common that the wipers will move on high speed but not low/normal speed when this is the case. Remove the little cap at the base of the wiper and tighten the nut.

Normal RPM for most cars is around 2000 at 60mph.

Honda accord 1993, I have a problem when I get up to normal speed 50mph and let off of the gas I have a grinding noise. If I slow down by not letting off the gas by holding the brake on,or put it in...


I'll bet it maks the same noise backing up too the motormounts are loose enough to allow the fan belt drive to run into something. with the hood open and someone driveing the car have them put the car in gear and watch the motor move around ( it should move around a little) as they put the car in reverse and hold the brake so the car doesn't move lean or the gas and you should see where it's hitting and make the repairs or reconnect something that's falling off like the raditor fans, the hoses for the air conditioner or other belt drive conponants. If this doesn't find anything look at the drive axels and see if their covers and shields are all in place and not runnininto something

When im driving in 5th gear the RPM's seem high around 3500 is this normal?


I, also, thought this was high at first. After some research, I found that this car runs in that range at about 75 mph. So, yes. That is normal.

Slow acceleration, high rpm


This sounds normal to me! The engine will read that rpm when accerlerating lightly. It is the stall of the torque convertor. The oil pressure will always be higher when the rpm's are higher, or when the oil is thicker - cold.

Virbration? That is a different story. Oil won't cause that.
