Question about 1989 Honda CRX

2 Answers

How do I detect the problem for a clicking sound as I start the engine?

When I start the car it starts this short clicking sound, then it gets really loud within a minute, as I drive the car shakes a little with the loud sound that now shudders. It started out about 4 months ago, and it kept getting louder and louder. Someone believes it the auto trans, I believe it is something to do with the exhaust system some where...What do U think?

Try re-tension the spark plugs as if a slightly loose plug will make that sound and cause rough engine as the compression gas escapes past the seat especially on a taper seat plug

SOURCE: Transmission shudder

I had a similar problem on my 93 Accord after I accidentally threw the car in reverse at 50 mph, obviously wrecking the transmission. When I got it rebuilt I was told the transmission pump was to blame (clogged with "shrapnel"). I, and your car manual, recommend taking the car in to get the tranny looked at. Especially considering you just had the fluid changed which is what would normally cause the problems you are describing.

SOURCE: Car shakes when I start it

I'm no expert but it sounds like it could be a bad motor mount and since it's a 91 it could have rotted out cuz i know honda's have rubber in their motor mounts.

I've got an 08 4cyl and it doesn't really have the vibration unless its really cold. Usually if I give it about 30 seconds...when the rpms start to come down, its barely noticeable.

Won't start! really need advise!


If you are talking about not able to turn the key, then move the steering wheel back and forth while you are turn the key. That should unlock your steering column.
If you are talking about car not starting after you turn the ignition, then it could be the starter. If it's the starter, you would hear a clicking sound but no cranking
