Question about 1998 Honda Accord
Hi I have a problem with the motor. It idles and runs smooth. The problem is when I put it in gear and drive and press on the gas it has a noticable rattle. I checked under the car ex...all the exhaust shields,lines,any thing that could be loose. Some one told me the timing might be off. Can you give me any info to further my search for the problem
Before messing with the timing, get your alternator checked out. Supplying the ECU in a V6 Accord (98-02) can cause some of the same problems you've described above. I had some of the same stuff happen in my 2000 EX V6 and it turned out to be an alt/batt combination. I replaced both and had none of the problems (transmission or otherwise) that I experienced.
