Question about 1993 Honda Accord

2 Answers

I have a '93 Honda Accord with 230,000 miles. Recently it's been intermittently making a loud squealing noise when turning left or right at low speeds (like the squeaky sound you might hear when rubbing hard while cleaning glass). Doesn't happen all the time and doesn't happen when turning the wheel while standing still. It doesn't occur until after the engine has warmed up. Sometimes I can drive for blocks and make frequent turns with no noise, sometimes I drive the same route and it squeals at every turn. The noise seems to be coming from the steering wheel itself. Performance doesn't seem to be affected. Does this sound like something that needs immediate attention? The car is overdue for a new timing belt, but I can't afford that right now -- could this be an indication the timing belt is going?

Change the power steering fluid in the steering system. This will take a couple of times but will solve your problem.

In some honda s the PISTON and the VALVE share the same space ,check if your honda does or not ,because you wil have to re build that motor if that happens,timing belts are at every 90,000 miles

My 99 accord's wheel squeals while driving but stops as soon as i press the brakes. Sometimes the noise will stop after driving a few miles but other times it wont make the noise at all.


have your brake pads checked out, often they are so close to finnished that they make a noise when not applied, as soon as you apply them they press on the last bit of padding left and the noise goes away.

I have a 93 honda accord and when i am backing up i hear a bad metal grinding noise. What could cause that. Also while i'm driving my wheels make a squealing noise which is very annoying. anyone got any...


It could be your brake splash shield that's slightly bent into and rubbing up against the brake rotor, causing that noise in reverse and forward. It will make a different noise going in different direction. Have it checked and if necessary simply bent back into place.

Making sound when the wheel turns sharp slowly....


check your power steering fluid level if it's low refill it and see if you still hear the noise then take it to honda and have them find and repair the leak. the brakes are screeching like that cuz you may have had to make a quick stop in the past and it glazed the pads by over heating them, it should go away but if you are concerned you can always get a brake inspection

When backing up and sometimes turning right my brakes(?) make a squealing sound. Almost as though a pebble is caught and grinding on something. Honda 2004 accord-50.000miles. I was told I needed new brakes...


Your rear brake pads are most likely worn to the wear indicator which can make a high pitch squealing noise. It is very common that it will squeal when backing up, but not when applying the brakes. 50,000 miles is about the average life for rear brake pads on your car.
