I have a 1999 Honda Accord Sedan w/ 3.0L V-6 and 94,500 miles.
I noticed that the car suddenly is making a loud whirling sound when in idle. The sound gets louder and something rattles when I accelerate.
The car would hum quietly before at idle.
I checked my oil and air filter and they are ok. I do routine maintaince and had major service done 6 months ago @ Honda dealer.
I noticed that it started to happen right after I filled up at the gas station. Could it possibly be the fuel? I filled up @ Costco gas station, 87 octane. My friend thinks its the timing belt or altenator.
have the same problem?
