Question about Honda Accord

1 Answer

Intermittent springy sound in the rear wheel wheel area but cant be certain. It does not make a difference at what speed or on a smooth or bumpy road. Seems to be less on cool mornings and more as the day heats up.

The sound could be a weathered leaf spring that is making noise when the suspension travels up and down. You can go to a self car wash and use the pressure washer there to spray the undercarriage down blowing out any loose dirt and gravel from the rear springs and then when it has dried put a little bit of wd40 onto the leaf springs where they meet or if its an independent suspension where the coil meets with another at the top and bottom then drive to see if it goes away. If it does then it would be a good idea to look into replacing the springs as they are most likely worn.

Humming noise driving

Check the transmission fluid easy fix. The humming noise could be road noise and can't do anything about that, but if it is coming from any certain area around the vehicle would be helpful in finding a solution. Check rear wheel bearings for loose worn or damaged areas. Hope this Helps

Every time I brake the rear passenger side pulls downward. When I brake firmly even at low speeds sometimes the same area will not brake and instead produce a very rapid bumpy result.

usually when this happens there are three things can cause this. The rear brakes aren't adjusted up evenly, the rubber hose is not releasing the brakes properly and it needs to be replaced. on the side that is not grabbing. In otherwords one side is working properly and the other isn't.the side that is grabbing is working faster than the other. If you have rear pads replace the caliper on the opposite side and the hose to be safe. Same goes with the rear shoes. Replace the wheel cylinder and hose.

I got 2 used tires on the front. Now it vibrates like you are on a gravel road. The steering wheel also vibrates. It is a smooth ride til you reach 60 mph or more. Some people said it is bad tires and some...

Sounds like they did a lousy job at balancing them or did not balance them at all. This is where I would begin. It could be a faulty bad tire if the balance checks out.

When coming to a stop , coasting down the engine makes hum sound and then dies, starts OK after that and goes on , very intermittent

This is not going to sound possible but it happened in my 1994 Crown Vic too. If you have traction control part of the system controls an air valve in the air filter intake area. When the traction control senses a difference in rear wheel speed it chokes the engine so you don't spin the wheels.
Your sensors must be dirty or the emergency brake pads are covering the sensors with brake dust. You need to have someone check the rear brakes.

You motor will produce that hum as air is choked off by the traction control.

Pops out of gear it's a 5 speed 1.8L went driving shift smooths but then pops out. is it the clutch? or is the tranny blowin ?

Sometimes spray lube on linkages & bushings down at the transmission & at areas where you see movement during shifting, will cure that, otherwise you may need some new bushings at certain areas. Have someone move shifter while you observe different pivot points for too much slop. (movement)

Bmw e46 loud vibration noise from front wheel

usually noise complaint can be pretty tricky to repair. especially if its intermittent. since you say it only when its cold my first guess would have to be a wheel bearing. some other things you can check is how the tires are wearing. when you rub your hand along the tread is it smooth or does the tread catch your hand. if your tires aren't wearing smooth noise complaints can be heard while slightly turning, braking, or even accelerating.also if its a wheel bearing you can lift the vehicle up in the rear (turn off your dsc) and run the rear tires up to speed. usually you can hear a loud wheel bearing. also you can drive the vehicle and swerve back and forth and see if the nosie changes. depending on which side of the vehicle suspension is being loaded
