Hello. Hope is my name. My 93 Acura legend sounds like a pickup truck is running when I drive it and engine jumps when braking

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

It makes like a grinding noise after about 10-15 minutes of driving from under the hood that sounds like an old truck and occasionally I'll smell burning oil.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are a number of things that could be making noise. It could be an internal engine issue but if it's a grinding noise it would be more likely to be an engine driven accessory such as the a/c compressor. It's also possible that the noise could be coming from the transmission.

Are any warning lights coming on?

Have fluid levels been checked?

Are you able to tell what part of the engine compartment the noise comes from?

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
