Icon9 Knocking Sound (NEED HELP!)

Hi everyone,

I've driven my first prelude for about 6 months now and love it to pieces but I've just discovered an issue.

In the last month or so I've detected a sort of knocking or tapping feeling in the floor while accelerating. At first it was only noticeable at around 100Km/h and was a bad frequent knocking in the floor that made it terrible on highways and would continue for the rest of the day but would settle down eventually in slower speeds. But now it has progressively got worse and i can feel the knocking in every gear at any speed.

Its really quite concerning and I need to get this fixed. I love the car too much to see it get any worse. What could it be?

Clutch issues perhaps?

Let me know what you think it might be and I'll check it out.

If you think its coming from the engine, get a very long screwdriver (or something metal), put one end to your ear, and touch the other end to different parts of the motor while its running (head, block, etc...) and you should be able to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

I'm having the same problem on my Integra right now... all mine is is a broken weld on the exhaust that is allowing it to bounce and hit the frame of the car. Look at all parts of your exhaust to make sure nothing is loose

Re: Knocking Sound (NEED HELP!)

After taking a good look at it today, I jacked up the front wheels and gave it a drive in gear, it appears that the knocking is coming from the transmission area so i'm going to look into the clutch assembly as we believe it could be the pressure plate that has failed or broken. Fingers crossed that its not an actual transmission issue, then i'll be broke. :S
