Icon5 Odd noise from front of car

Hey, everyone.

I just noticed that my car is making a noise I'm not familiar with.

Every time I start the engine, it doesn't matter if my first move is in first gear or reverse, as soon as I apply gas and let up off the clutch, I hear and feel a vibration that lasts for about one second. It only happens when I've just started the engine, just the once, never again until I shut down and start, again. It feels like it's coming from the passenger side, in the engine compartment. I can feel it in the clutch pedal, and the gas pedal. Is there something about to fail?

Tnx,

Re: Odd noise from front of car

I've had the same thing since I got the car, im 95% sure it's just the wheel rubbing somewhere, as it only happens when im turning and starting off. I've never heard it driving or over bumps or anything, just after car startup and move. feels like the passanger side mostly also, it's not a very harsh vibration. This is on the stock blade rims and 205/50/16 new tires.

Re: Odd noise from front of car

Sounds like it could be cv axles. They go from the transmission to the center hub on the wheel. Look at the rubber boot and see if there is grease on the outside or if you see cracks in the rubber boot. Mine are really bad, just haven't fixed it yet. At oreillys its 50 for remanufactured ones or 70 for new ones, and there are guides on how to do it on this site, as well as YouTube. Changing the passenger side one will make the tranny fluid drain out, so just have like an oil drain pan if you decide to try it

Is it a sort of "Bzzzzzzzzzt" for about 2-3 seconds when you first start and go? If so, then it's just your abs pump priming.

Re: Odd noise from front of car

Me, too.. if it's just the ABS and you don't think there's anything wrong, I'll just deal with hearing it.

Thanks!

Re: Odd noise from front of car

Hmm that must be it lol, cause my boots and everything were fine and its not a rough vibration really at all. Plus my gf's prelude has always had the same thing since she got it, ohwell least now i know its nothing to panic over which i was pretty sure of anyway.

Re: Odd noise from front of car

mine used to sound like there was a wrench in the fender when i first started it or won't gassing it enough while clutching..
turns out it was....a wrench in the fender..3/8" which kinda freaked me out because every screw is metric!

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
