Hey Guys.

Just hit 55k miles on my 2010 automatic. It seemed like it was making a little bit a noise and it was about 6k since my last oil change so I figured I would change it and see if it helped at all.

I put in 5-20w Penzoil Platinum filled it between the dots and started the car. Didnt seem to do anything to the sound so it wasnt low/old oil related.

But today I decided to open the hood and listen closer. It is much louder under the hood then in the driver seat. Driver seat isnt noticeable at all with music on but I constantly listen for sounds in my car so I began to notice it.

Video is on youtube here. TSX Sound - YouTube

Any ideas? I was thinking it was just belt related and the belt makes a scratchy type of sound. But there is the clickier sound coming from the opposite side of the belt.

Help!

Thanks all.

When the camera panned to the belt, I heard what could possibly be a bad idler pulley bearing. My 06 makes a similar sound when the engine is cold, but usually goes away when warmed up.

Everything else sounds pretty normal,The ticking noise is your injectors,

Thanks for the response. The car was not making this sound last time I opened the hood so I have to believe something is off.

Like others I also hear they high pitch whine on acceleration must of the time. I also feel like I have seen a lot more rpm drops when in manual shift mode. Others have said that could be a bad torque converter, could that be a possible issue?
