honda engine bay noises

Recommended Posts

Dear forum members,

 

this winter my honda is starting to fall apart i guess. There is rubbing noise that comes from the engine bay. I've checked all the liquids and the oil, etc is all at the levels that it should be. The next logical step in reasoning could be that it's a worn belt or a rusted pulley(or a rock or a piece of salt got in there and is making the noise everytime the engine is running) . I don' like the honda dealerships in my area, they're sheisters and i have always fixed the problems i had with my car myself.

 

Please advise what it could be

 

regards,

 

Maniek

take it to the dealer dude. it sounds to me like its 60% of a blown engine. were you beating it? it didnt just start doing it out of the blue , i find that hard to beleve. under which conditions did it start making this noise? dont run it anymore till you have an idea. you should take a video clip outsde of it running , inside theres too much echo and its har to hear.

You motor sounds old, like a valve stem is bent or something.

 

Use a metal rod about 2-3 feet long (if you really are desperate, pull the hood prop out and use that), and hold it against your mastoid process (the part of your skull behind your ear).

 

While firmly pressed against your skull and your finger plugging your ear canal, touch different parts of your engine while it is running. You will be able to hear the internals of the engine, and this way be able determine if the noise is originating from the inside of the motor or the outside.

 

This method can be used to isolate bad valves, old bearings, regions of low fluid pressure, etc.
