I have a 1991 Honda Accord Ex coupe. It currently has about 142,000 miles on it and the problem has seemed to arise quite recently. The engine causes quite a lot of noise when you are accerlerating and going up a hill. I want to say that it knocks, but it is quite a loud noise that can be heard as well as felt. An addition to that, it also idles wierd. It idles fine during initial start-up as all cars do, but once it is warmed up it idles up and down probably lopes about 200RPM in both directions. The idling does not bother me as much as the LOUD noise from accelerating and going up hill. I have taken it to several places and I have been told that it was the motor mounts, so I changes those that the noise is still there. I have also heard that it can be the clutch, but I am not so sure that it can be that because then other problems and/or noises can occur. Besides if it was the clutch then it would be constant and it is not. The noise is there when it seems that the engine is under load such as accerlerating and up hill travel. What is the problem here. Can someone help me out and tell me a solution. Thanks.
