Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

The rules for the overall forum can be found here:
Read them. You will be expected to follow them.

    Knock knock ... whos there ??

    92 Accord Ex

    so upon completion of a quick tune up i notice that loud deeper knock/rattle shitz still there

    not as bad but def there

    use to have a 90 ex did the same thing ..

    is this a balance shaft issue ? usually most noticeable when high idle n morning and slight revving helps notice
    even more

    did spark plugs, valve adjustment, idle reset, timing set

    that took care of the slight ticks i heard, but that louder / deeper sound still there

    so questions about balance shaft like can they be rebalanced ? what about any bearings etc for replacement on those ?

    throw me some bones

    The balance shafts could be out of time, but that wouldn't account for a knocking. Would just make the engine shake more. There are bearings for the balance shafts, but I have *NEVER* heard of them wearing out. Even on the 1 million+ mile 4th Generation Honda Accord. If you've done the valve adjustment it could be some piston slap if it's the worst when cold.

    I'm a bit stumped here. I have 4 running 4th Gen Accords, and a buddy has 2 and none of them have a sound like you are describing. They are all up on their maintenance.

      A small exhaust leak could potentially sound like a knock. I’ve never heard it on an F22A, but I’ve heard it happen on other engines.


        so I ended up replacing my oil pan and while I was under there I threw in some new bearings and it helped tremendously !!

        so new rod bearings and bottom half of crankshaft (cant get to upper with engine in )

        I could also reach in and wiggle the balance shafts so i know the bearings and seals on that probably worn bad ..

        so maybe early next year Ill pull the engine out and re-do engine overhaul so I can refresh upper bearings .. probably go racing bearings
