That clicking is thestarter solenoid ,it only does it when the battery is flat or the solenoid has had it. more than likely the washing has set up a trcle discharge via the warer ,if you dont have compressed airto blow dry all the electrical bits,the use wd40 or rp7 any of those type of prducts are water displacents. spray every thing electrical under the bonnet ----batt. trerminals,starter conections plug wires coil and so on. then try starting if you are getting the clicking ,thethe battery is flat and you will nneed to jumo start it ---- good luck

No. washing the engine did not cause the problem, it just exposed the problem. You are hearing a spark knock. Either your plug wires, coil(s) or coil wires (depending on your ignition setup) have micro abraisions (cracks) that are small enough you cant see them. When you got them wet the water made it easier and more efficiant for the spark to travel outside the confinement of the wires or coil. Replace your plug wires first, if the problem persists then replace your coil wires then your coil(s) depending on the style of ignition system your car has. If you do this I guarentee you will solve your problem.

Where is fuel filter on 2001 Accord Sedan, 4 cylinder engine



On any car or engine, you can always start at the fuel injector or carburetor and follow the line leading to it backwards till you find any part of the fuel system your looking for, including modified ones.
This should only take a few minutes and has the advantage of exposing any other things (like pressure regulators, etc) also in the system that may have caused a problem.
Uh...this also works from the gas tank and following it forward...or anywhere along the system you want to start!
True, if it's in the fuel tank, as some are, you'll end up, by elimination, isolating it to having to be there.

Clicking noise after 1 minute or two of turning it on


these are the hydraulic lifters. try a good engine flush and see if it is able to quiet them down and then change the oil using at least a quality 10w40. if this a 4 cylinder then you might need a valve adjustment. find someone you trust to perform this as to not do any engine damage. happy holidays.
