Customer Question
I have a 1998...

I have a 1998 Honda Accord EX. A few days ago, the check engine light came on. After driving for a while, the engine starts making a stressed, panting like noise. What could be causing this?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It stays on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I have a certified Honda mechanic who works on it. I haven't consulted with him yet, wanted to get another opinion first.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I already have an open account with just answer. My name is*****

that I don't know. I just know the symptoms I described in my question to you
Mechanic for Honda: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

there are over 200 things that can turn the check engine light on. there are just as many to cause the engine to have issues.

unless you have a fault code, its a guessing game

I see your point. I guess I'll have the mechanic who normally works on my car do a scan and then get back with you with the fault code.

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

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

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!!!!
