HI all.
I have a 96 Accord that I bought about a month ago. Before I even started driving it I had the Timing Belt changed. Car runs and shifts great. But there is this kind of "whine" sound as it accelerates. It whines according with the engine RPMs.
Anyone have any ideas? Pulleys? Tensioners?

Thanks all.

Inlaws' 02 accord had its AT fail at 38k. This is USVI hill use.

The AT in there whines. It is kind of annoying. Its not just you, though I dont know why this happens...

AFAIK, Honda Whine from the early Honda's were normal.

Power steering pump perhaps. My 2001 Civic whined from new until 227k. It's not the transmission.

I have 191K on my Civic, it has that same whine. Always has, I did TB, WP, tensioners, pulleys. It still does it.

I don't know about the older Accords. But with newer Accords and Odysseys- particular V6 models- a transmission whine usually indicates eminent failure.

The accord whines from the AT, that's for sure.

+1 My 2010 Accord did it from day one, definitely the tranny, got rid of it to get the Civic Hybrid. Much better running vehicle IMO especially for being only like 112hp or so.

Yep, that's what happened to with my '01 Civic. It almost sounded like a quiet supercharger. I never could figure out what it was, so I just drove it, shortly after the trans went out.

It may have been the front pump of the transmission making noise, if the noise varied with engine speed and the noise really was coming from the transmission.

Does it whine at idle or only when driving?

I've complained to the dealer about my A/T whine in my 07 accord for some time now. Its the differential mostly, but in some cases i feel that the pump is making noise. Dealer has played games saying "its not bad enough", "you may get another one very similar to the one you have". They even tried to tell me that whine noise was from the belt.

Needless to say, i will never go back to that dealer. I told them to put it together and have it ready for me.

But as far as whine, its somewhat normal. Honda A/T's have some noisy units out there. and a side note, it shifts well other than the whining.
