Also, the noise was present for around 15-20min, on an engine that was at operating temperature. It went away just a little while ago and I drove another 8-10miles and now I have parked and it is not present any longer

Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 1 year ago

a few things come to mind

a alternator bearing or a power steering pump noise or something else in the system

Okay. I am opening the hood, the noise was no longer there when I parked around 10min ago. But if it makes the noise I will record it
Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 1 year ago

ok also if you can try to isolate the noise like the drive belt area or the transmission side ?

can you tell me if the noise is affected by the rpm or load on the motor ?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
When the problem was happening, the noise became more apparent when rpm was raised
Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 1 year ago

The noise isnt happening right now. It has gone away but the engine just seems a bit sluggish as well, it is a bit over due for an oil change but thats about it

I do have a YouTube account. Someone mentioned that I should put some sort of lucas additive when I do my oil change this week. Because it could be some sort of bearing?

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.

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

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
