    Hi,

    My 1.8 accord started to make this strange noise (on cold as well as warm engine). There doesn't seem to be any difference in engine's behaviour, it runs perfectly. Timing belt was replaced 30k miles ago. I'm not sure if I should worry too much about this. I made a short video:



    Have anyone had similar issue or at least knows the source of this noise?

    Thanks

    No idea where that sounds coming from... camera phone have a habit of making sound echoy and you can hear that .. but whatever is the source it does not sound good. Is the power steering fluid topped up to the top level?

    Yeah hard to tell from phone clips. Take the aux belt off and see if that helps you narrow down where the noise is coming from.
