When I accelerate the car makes two noises. The loudest is obviously the deep note of my Milltek which I love and to be honest it's all I want to hear. The other is really hard to explain but it is this one that's bugging me.
It's a noise that the engine makes and comes from the front end. It's more easily heard when accelerating in the first half of the rev range before the Milltek drowns it out. It's directly related to me accelerating and sounds almost like a rattly engine noise but it's not stricly a rattle, its an engine sound I more associate with a deisel engine. I don't know if it is the normal engine sound which I've taken a dislike to as I like the sound of the Milltek or if I have an issue somewhere. It could be the sound of a small hole somewhere I guess...

Just wondering if any one out there can even relate to the noise I'm trying to describe ?

Any thoughts would be great... it could just be my OCD kicking in again.. :confused:

Hi Pabby, Ive posted this twice on this forum and i get a strange noise when revving from the 1st half rev range like you and too think it sounded like a diesel engine noise, it's kinda like a faint garggling type noise which is hard to describe too, i've been told its the intake, but im guessing its from the exhaust, try opening the window and see if you think its the exhaust too?

Yeah that's the one, not just me being anal then :D
I have a K&N apollo intake, what are you using? I can't tell if it is getting worse or if I'm just paying more attention to it.
When I open the window I can hear it more which I try to avoid, worst is driving through built up areas as I can hear it so much more. I don't think it is the exhaust, it seems to come from the area of the intake from what I can tell. I had thought maybe filters need cleaning or something? I just don't know but I'd like it gone!

I dont have an intake, people on here were saying its intake noise, so i assume they meant airbox etc, but im pretty sure it's the exhaust, i get paranoid too when accelerating in higher gears at low speed as you can hear it kinda like chugging, sounds like its broken or a hole somewhere like you mentioned.

I just turn the music up or go into Vtec, i'd try get a video but i guess its too faint? looks like im not the only worried one lol

Hi - Pabby and Jason85 - i'm so happy i found this post - my civic (1.8 petrol) does same kind of noise - usually at 20-30mph, at @2500-3000rpm, sort of rattling noise coming from engine bay when accelerating... I though i was going 'loco' about it, esp. when every mechanic I asked about it told me that there is nothing wrong with my car...Well, at least now I know its not just me "hearing noises & voices" ;)

Maybe the radiator mate?

my 1.8 does it ...

happens to me when the car looks like it will go down, or when I put a 2nd at low speed and speed up...

Take a look...
