My car is making a noise when I back up. Sounds like a pump kicking in.

The noise your hearing is the rear dif. The oil in the rear dif get old and dirty and needs replacing if its noisy you'll need to flush the rear dif. If you go to a Honda dealer and ask them for a d.p.f flush they will know what it means and it only takes aprox half hour to an hour.

Noise in rear end

Provided that this is a rear-wheel drive vehicle, there are a number of things which can make noise when you accelerate. Most are due to excess clearance in moving parts. This means some parts are worn out.

On the outside, the U-joint next to the rear differential can be worn and make noise. Inside the differential, usually a pinion bearing(carrier bearing) can make a noise like a whine or growl depending on the gap.

Now in the axle tube, the axle shafts have a bearing on each wheel. Like any bearing, when they wear out, noise usually indicates failure.

When Torque is applied on acceleration, the parts shift creating noise. If you have a Limited Slip Differential, there are clutch plates which have a material which can wear out. These types of rear ends also need a special Additive to make the parts work. Sometimes you get a clatter when the additive is low.

Have the U-joint checked first as it is the only external part to check. The rest will need disassembly.

Please rate my info.

Jack up the rear of the car and try wiggling the wheels. They should be fairly tight.

Diff leaking oil making noise can i get secound hand one ? how much to get it repared

if the dif is making noise, its probably bearing fatigue, due to lack of oil (leak) you can buy a second hand one at a salvage yard, check your local salvage yards, if that doesnt work, try a parts locater service.

Constant whine when driving and wheels lock/skid in sharp turns

One way to track down the noise; since sound travels through metal its hard to pinpoint when driving in the car.
Jack all four wheels off the ground securely (preferably a lift) and run the car with the wheels spinning. Then, without dying, listen for the noise. The dealer can do it for you as well. But sounds like a bad differential.
