Hi i have just bought a 2011 civic type s gt and got problems. Ive noticed around 30-40 mph the engine judders or hesitates,when i put my foot down in second gear im getting a loud whineing sound a bit like a landrover sound or lsd which the type s hasnt got. Also when the car is left over night then drive i get a knocking sound from the passenger side rear of the car. Any ideas people before i take it back would like to know if whineing sound is normal. Thanks

The whine you can get with the 2.2 which is what I have, not too knowledgeable with the 1.8. I know there are some serious gearheads on here that would be able to help. Can't believe they haven't put their 2¢ in yet. Wish I could help more...

Site is very helpful...you just need to be patient...I guess most of the guys and ladies have not had the chance to read your thread...even myself...

Ok here goes: In regards to the knocking noise when you drive off check these threads:http://www.civinfo.com/forum/wheels-tyres-suspension-brakes/42028-suspension-knocking-noise-pls-read.html

For the whining noise, I am sorry I cant help, I seem to remember reading somewhere in the forum about this being normal or so...not sure...

Cheers

I the car is 2011 it is still under warranty, why don't you pop it back to the dealer and get them to check it out?

Take it back and get them to have a look at it, I wouldn't have thought these noises were normal

The knocking doesn't sound healthy at all, 100% would take it back for peace of mind because if there is something seriously wrong it will be best to catch the problem early before it devlops in to a serious problem.

regarding the creak;

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/wheels-tyres-suspension-brakes/42028-suspension-knocking-noise-pls-read.html

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/wheels-tyres-suspension-brakes/52226-creaking-suspension-fix-yet.html

which might be helpful. If its a creak from the rear first thing in the morning when cold I had the same thing with my type S and both the type R's. On mine it goes after going round the first two corners off my estate.

with regard to the engine whine, I can't remember my type S doing it, get that check out with the dealer.

We have got a 2011 type s but 1.4 with i-shift, and have covered 2000 miles and have not had any of your problems, hope you get them resolved, everybody is really helpful on this site, but I would have been straight back down the dealers and contacting Honda UK for advice.:D

Whats up with a Jazz? so Jazzy.

Hope you get them things sorted.

After I heard a knocking sound I had my bump stops replaced by the dealer. This solved the problem.

I mentioned the rear creaking/knocking sound when speaking to the dealer on Friday to book the wife's FK2 for its 3rd service.

The Honda tech knew all about it, and said Honda are aware but there is no fix as of yet. He said it is not a safety issue though.
