Question about 1991 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 90 Honda Accord with an automatic transmission. It was involved in a minor accident about two weeks ago which broke the headlight lens on the driver side side along with bending the front wheel rim on the same side. There is also a minor crunching of the front driver side fender (same location). Ever since that happened, occasionally when we first start out and attempt to back up from a parked position, there is a loud gear grinding noise. All forward gears work perfectly. What would cause that grinding noise, and how do we fix the problem?

SOURCE: Grinding sound on front passenger side of 91 honda accord.

Well, if the transmission seems to be okay , The timing belt or chain is most likely the noise based on the age of the vehicle. The tech you took the vehicle to should be able to pin point the noise with stethascope ears.

Make sure the oil level is full.

Good Luck

There's a problem with the steering shaft coupler. Ours did that and made a thunking sound too. Dealer covered it under warranty and put in a better shaft. I don't think a recall has been put out, but if you still have warranty, tell them to replace the steering wheel shaft while you can...

"Sports" sensor l reading on the dash regarding the transmission.

It's going into safe mode. This link I included at the bottom of my note will explain everything. I just repaired this problem 3 weeks ago on a 91 Accord. She needs to find out if the transmission computer is burned out. If so replace it only from a 90-93 Accord that also has the Sport Shift feature.

Sounds like it might be leaking through the Torque Converter seal. Easy fix...just sucks having to take the tranny out again.

Is a 2.2 in a 91 the same in a 92?

Might need to swap over the computer as well if it indeed has one.
