I have a 2006 Honda Accord EX coupe with a 2.4L I-4 and an automatic transmission. I had taken my car in recently to get a recall fix for the secondary shaft bearing recall on my model of car. During this time, I was also experiencing some wierd issues with the vehicle. Stiff steering wheel, hard brake pedal, hard gas pedal, and acceleration hesitance all at the same time. Since then, it's been to a mechanic who had unplugged/plugged back in each and every connector on the car, and that fixed the wierd issues I was having, but I am still experiencing the acceleration/shifting hesitance.
I had also unplugged my MAF sensor and drove it around the block. It caused the CEL to go on. This I parked the car, plugged the sensor back in, started the car, and heard a slight clunk coming from what sounded like the intake manifold, like the sound of a butterfly plate retracting. My car hasn't driven the same way since I did this.
I am also hearing a "hissing" sound coming from the engine compartment when the card is idle and when I'm driving and accelerating.
I'm hoping that properly resetting ECU will help this matter out somewhat. Can you provide me with the proper steps to take to reset the ECU on my car? I would greatly appreciate it.
have the same problem?
