"I have the same problem. Some people say hat the turbine is done. But the problem is that the turbine works normal, no excess smoking, no power loss. So that is why I went dipper into the problem. It turns out it could be the intake header gasket.
I will take it to a local mechanic and let him take a look at it.

    Sorry to tell you it is not the intake header gasket. Many mechanics checked and all came to same result, the turbine is starting to die. They all said do not change it, until it is totally dead.
    I hope it helps.

I have an honda accord 2.2 i-ctdi that has a loud knocking noise and no compression in any of the cylinders and will not start please help

Sounds like you snapped your timing belt. That would cause it to not have any type of compression in the cylinders. Have it looked at to see if that's actually the problem.

There is loud whistling noise on my honda accord when accelerating.there is no power smoke or anything like that so i dont think is turbo.anybody got an idea what it could be?any help would be...

Had a similar problem on my 06 accord, would recommend you check the air intake system. Loose parts tend to cause a whistle.
If your's is a diesel like mine, there is a plastic cover over the intake next to the radiator which can come loose.
Good Luck!

Engine is now clicking when running. Now what?

A clicking can be caused by many things.This is a solid cam/rocker style engine,so periodic adjustment is required.Fuel injectors click when the engine is running-a normal noise.Honda 2.3 engines are noted for having some piston slap,most noticeable when the engine is first started cold,but gets less loud after warm up.You are going to have to let a Honda shop listen to this noise and evaluate just how serious it is...many dealers are looking for work to keep their tech's busy,if you walk in and ask what's this clicking noise? you may get a free estimate out of them...

Hi i got problem with my bmw e39 540 i auto .when engine warm it changes gear late and got a whisle noise .it only does when engine warmed and if i turn engine of and wait for 20 min or less it gets normal...

Look for vacuum leaks, late shifting can be a result of lower than normal manifold vacuum, look for dislodged or broken hoses.

My thought is when you find the whistling, you will have the solution...

Steering Wheel noise on cold start

this is either a loose belt, or low power steering fluid. Remember that Honda uses a diffrent power steering fluid from everyone else. Make sure it is a Honda compatable fluid, or you will get leaks.
