Hi all, sorry haven't posted for a while, been real busy-
(The conclusion to this is on the third page, by the way)
Anyhow, just started opening up the ol' girl and hitting vtec. However, I noticed a very strange sound yesterday that occurred each time I hit vtec.
As I approached 6000rpm and climbed to 7000 I heard this loud "scraping, rattling (Like rocks and pebbles), scratching, wooshing" sound coming from the right lower passenger side glove box/behind the glove box. It got louder as the rpms climbed from 6 to 7000. Can this be VTEC, sorry (I-VTEC) engagment??!?!?!??!
Now, I took all stuff out of the glove box, left it open, and it seemed louder. Then I thought it might be the window or something....and no on that too. Under the hood nothing is loose that I can see or feel. The engine has full oil. No funny smells or check engine light. Again, I only hear it when going into vtec as soon as I let off the throttle it dissapears. I had a 2000 civic si so I know the sound is not normal at all.
Noel....Any advice? I have an appointment on Monday to get it looked at. Otherwise no ideas.
I am also getting the radio creaking taken care of (I Hope
Thanks in advance-
