Looking for help I just purchased a 2002 Honda accord 4cyl Auto for my 2o yr old daughter. Her boyfriend told her that this car has transmission problems. I drove ot and it drives great, shifts up just as good as any car i have driven. the problem she states is that when she takes her foot off of the gas around 20- 25 mph the idle drops, but the car does not stall. She states there was a recall on the transmission but I can't find it .. Any Help at all would be nice.. Thanks DiGga

To be honest, it simply sounds like the car is going from 2nd gear to 3rd. It should around that speed.
Also, the transmission problems, if I recall correctly, were on V6 models. My grandmother has a 2002 Accord LX (4-cyl Auto) and to my knowledge hasn't had recall worked performed on it. Also, it drives like it did when brand new (it has 94k miles on it), and gets great mileage (average about 22-23 in very short-trips/city driving).
#1560 of 2254 Starter Squeaking - 1999 Accord
Nov 11, 2008 (11:31 am)
I have a 1999 Accord EX with 4 cyl eng with approx 111K mi. I recently began to notice a high pitched squeaking noise that i assume is coming from the starter when I start the car up. The noise lasts for a split second and stops. I've been paying close attention to make sure I'm not holding the ignition key in the start position too long. Is this noise the beginning signs that the starter needs replaced or are there other things that could be causing this? If the starter needs replaced, does anyone have any experience with what Honda dealers charge for replacing starters on a "99 Accord EX?

Disconnect the accessories belt first, and start it to make sure the problem isn't with one of the belt driven accessories before you go yanking the starter out. You need a little more troubleshooting to really confirm what the problem is.

my 2000 Accord EX with 88k on it is exhibiting a whine at start-up which used to go away after about 5min. but is now permanent....is it a whine or a squeal?....of which i suspect is the alternator wearing.

I am replacing the timing belt and balancer belt on my 2002 Honda Accord. The
thing that is I can't figure out is the direction to hold the balancer shaft with a
screw driver thru the access hole at the rear of the engine. Would holding the
front balancer shaft produce the same result?

#1565 of 2254 drivers side ball joint
Nov 15, 2008 (7:48 pm)
I just recently took my car in to get a wheel alignment and was told that I need a new drivers side ball joint. The mechanic showed me the upper ball joint and how it moved and said that it was not supposed to do that. I have a 98 Honda Accord with 133,000 miles and was wondering is this just normal wear as I don't think I have had a ball joint replaced before. Any advice on whether I should go with an OEM or an aftermarket part for my car? Also, are there any recalls on this part at all? Thank you.

Get a second opinion from a Honda dealer.
#1567 of 2254 Accord 98 Manual Transmission not engaging immediately
Nov 16, 2008 (11:33 pm)
I own a honda accord 98 with manual transmission. Belts have just been replace and should be ok. But after a week, i noticed that the transmission is not engaging immediately. When accelerating on right after changing gears, the car feels like not engaging totally, but after two or three seconds, it engages totally that sometimes it would jerk up. Also, during idle, engine running, it sounded like the engine is going to die but it doesn't. It happens randomly. Any possible problems my car have? Thanks for your help.
