1995 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 180000 miles
ok so I changed the oil on my wifes accord, being a good husband, and did not notice before putting the new oil filter on but the rubber gasket from the old one was still there. Obviously with two gasket, all the oil leaked out by the time she made it to work and call me to say how grateful she was for my oil change job. Now here is the problem and im not sure it is related to the oil issue or not. Upon putting the oil filter on correctly and refilling the proper amount of oil, I started the car and it makes a whining noise coming right about where the timing belt is, directly to the right of the oil dipstick. Any idea at all as to what is the cause, difficulty to fix, and if it was to be repaired by a mechanic the cost? Also how serious of a problem in other words is it something that could be left without attending to it. Thanks for any and all help.
have the same problem?
