Question about Honda Accord

1 Answer

It's a normal engine sound, but a lot louder. I can hear it inside and outside the car. If I put it in reverse or drive it smooth out and is normal. If I put it in neutral and it's loud too. When I drive, it's just a normal smooth ride. What do you think is the problem.

It may be just the engine. If you notice that the rpm is not constant you may need to have the IAC cleaned out or the vacuum lines checked for leaks or loose connections. It could also be leaks or holes in the exhaust pipe. When running road noise may have canceled it out.

I have a 1991 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder automatic transmission. I was driving about 10 mph when it just stopped moving. The engine starts and runs fine but when I put it in drive or reverse it won't drive....

You have internal problems with it. Clutches are bad, or could be a hard part broken. The grinding is from the inside of the transmission turn and you put it in park. This is a normal sound, if you were driving and slammed it in park. Except your not moving.

My S40 T5 makes a whirring sound due to the turbo but.... I did have an issue with the right front hub bearing. Lots of road noise while driving and it got louder as I accelerated. $215 dollars for the part.

I would replace the engine and transmission mounts, they are hard and transmitting engine vibration to the chassis.

I have a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier, When I put into Drive I hear a clunk sound in the motor area. When I put into Reverse no sound its only when I put into Drive.

Most likely cause I can give you without the benefit of seeing it is that you have a broken engine mount on the left side. Have someone watch while standing where you can't run them over, with the hood open so they can see the engine. Do what you normally do to hear the noise or put it into drive with your foot firmly on the brake, in drive and give the engine some gas. If you observe that the engine flips up as you do that, then the problem is verified as a mount.
A clunk noise can also come from a bad axle c/v joint but usually they give other symptoms as well. If the rubber boots are torn they should be replaced. Rarely, but can also happen, is that you have internal wear inside the transmission but as I said that's rare.

I just got through spending $360 having both the clutch fan and water pump replaced in my 2003 Dodge Durango. When I drove it off the lot, it had kinda a louder sound than when I had taken it in, and...

A viscous coupling(fan clutch) works with gel inside the coupling. When heated(engine getting hot) it engages the fan and the louder noise you hear may be the fan engaging. It should not be audible under normal running conditions and moderate heat. You do hear it after just having started the engine but should go away about 30 seconds later. With the engine at operating temp and switched off you should be able to easily turn the fan by hand. You will feel resistance and attempting to spin the fan by hand will have it turn only about a quarter turn by itself. If you cannot turn the fan at all then it has either been replaced with a direct drive unit, or has been modified. (Some of the less scrupulous service centres will drill a hole through the old coupling, put a bolt through it and tel the customer it has been replaced!!! ) Neither are acceptable practice if the customer has not been informed of this.
If it's been modified you should be in for a refund of sorts if you were charged for a new viscous coupling. If it was not modified, raise the question with the service centre and ask them if they could identify the sound, just to be safe.

The car makes a howling noise while driving it

well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it
