Whenever i'm accelerating and the RPM's are in the 2k, I hear this rattle for a brief second and then it goes away. Definitely sounds like it's in the drivetrain, or perhaps the engine. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks alot


Car has about 9K on it. Thanks alot for any help

I was gonna say motor mounts but you only have 9k on it and its a 06.

I have the same problem and its my motor mounts but i have an 02 with 128k on it.

sorry for the lack of details. No mods done whatsoever. It's bone stock and I usually drive on pretty smooth roads. It's so odd though, the noise ONLY becomes apparent for about couple hundred RPM's after 2k and then stops and everything sounds perfect.

Check your heat shields first... :thumbsup: There's a lot of em from what I understand and if one gets a lil loose... it'll rattle (at a certain RPM range) my prelude did this...

its ok bro..You shouldnt have no problems the car is basically brand new..and your warranty should be still kicking in...that is if you still have it dont know how it works out for you or where your located or how the whole warranty and your plan works...if you dont push the engine as much or your not a aggresive driver their shouldnt be no problems..but to be on the safe side and you have a concern then go to the dealer thats what the warranty is for....get it checked out....good luck

More than likely I know it's not my manifold cover. I had the windows down and it sounded like it was coming from underneath the car towards the tranny area. Don't know for definite but pretty positive it's in that vicinity. I'll check with everything you guys have suggested thus far.

anyways, I took off the half shaft as well. This didn't do anything for the noise. I'm starting to become worried that it could potentially be a tranny issue. Oh also I added washers to heatshields, this also didn't do anything. Any other suggestions? appreciate it

my 2002 type s makes the same noise. it sounds like it is coming from the cat. i can hear it between 2k-3k and it shuts up when i push the clutch in. it's sitting over at the dealership right now getting fixed from when this chick hit me. there supposed to be checking out my noise though.
