My vehicle listed above had a maintenance service with an oil change at the dealer one week back. Engine at idle has a chirping  noise.  Attaching you the video below. Can anyone please tell me what could be wrong with my car? It is more audible when standing in front of the car while we drive and park the car for some time.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

I hear something which sounds like a rattle. Have you checked the engine oil to confirm it is full? Not being there makes it more difficult, but it sounds like something on or in the engine.

Let me know.

This sounds like a pulley or an engine rattle. Clearly it is metal to metal but the pitch and speed of the noise sounds like it is a pulley. I would take it in and they should cover it under warranty. However, we need to remove the belt and see if the noise goes away. If not, check the oil level just to be sure.

I doubt it is anything they did at the service unless they spilled oil or something on the belt. However that would start making the noise the same day or pretty quickly. Not a week later. This seems like a coincidence.

Let us know what they find or if you want to do this yourself, let us know what you find when you take the belt off. However, if it were mine, I would take it in even though I am in this line of work. Why take the time or money if this is covered under warranty.

Hi,

That is reset when the oil is changed. Is the oil level full? Here are directions for checking. The attached pic correlates with the directions.

Engine Oil Level Check (2.4 L Engine)
Vehicle Engine, Cooling and Exhaust Engine Engine Lubrication Engine Oil Service and Repair Procedures Engine Oil Level Check (2.4 L Engine)
ENGINE OIL LEVEL CHECK (2.4 L ENGINE)
Engine Oil Level Check

Check
1. Engine Oil Level - Check

See pic 1

1) Park the vehicle on level ground, and start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm with no load (in P or N) until the radiator fan comes on, then turn off the engine, and wait more than 3 minutes.

2) Remove the dipstick, and wipe off the dipstick, then reinstall the dipstick.

3) Remove the dipstick.

4) Check the engine oil level. It should be between the upper mark (A) and the lower mark (B).

5) If the engine oil level is near or below the lower mark check for oil leaks, and add the engine oil (CLICK HERE) to bring it to the upper mark.

Let me know. As far as it saying 100%, once the maintenance light is reset, that is what it will read regardless if the oil has been changed, so we just need to confirm.

Also, have you mentioned this to the dealership? The vehicle is under 100% warranty.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe

Thank you. I scheduled for service from Honda today. I will let you know the fix. I have one question does gasoline type premium or regular matters with rattling sound?

Unfortunately my local Honda dealer is not able to fix this. They said it's normal and the sound is from the high pressure fuel pump noise and they mentioned they also have checked the oil level and that is also normal. Not sure what to do? Is this really normal? I questioned him the same if it's normal then I would hear the noise from the day one of my purchase.

I just filled my tank full with a premium gasoline. The chirping/rattling noise is gone now. Not sure how it is related, maybe coincidence.

Sound is coming back again after driving for a while. Should I take this to different dealership?

Hi,

As far as the fuel type, if you had a valve ping, a higher octane would likely help, but that isn't what you are hearing. It could be related to the fuel pump pressure at the fuel rail. However, it's odd that you never noticed it before.

Is there a different dealership near you? I would think you could simply stop in and ask the service manager to listen to it and see what he feels.

Let me know.

I found this:

They are reluctant to replace the high pressure fuel pump, I have set up inspection with another Honda dealership within my area. I will explain this.

I agree that if fuel type changed this then it could be a ping/detonation but after listening to that, I am thinking it is more of a pulley noise. Did they remove the belt to see if it goes away? If not, I would have this next dealer try that.

Thanks for the update. Keep us posted. Thanks

Hello, I got an update from my other dealership after the diagnosis, They told me they need to replace the transmission engine mount and they have ordered the part for it. Currently I have got the loaner car until Monday with the exact same model.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hi,

Any mount is constructed using a rubber mount to absorb vibration. However, at 1,200 miles, that's hard to believe. However, anything is possible. Maybe the rubber portion of the mount has collapsed. Surely the mount hasn't failed due to mileage. Also, why would the oil change have been the turning point? I'm a bit confused. LOL

If you have a chance, please let me know if that takes care of the issue. I'm really interested in knowing if that is going to become an issue on these vehicles.

Take care,
Joe

Yep, agreed. Maybe the problem is also there before the oil change, maybe I did not notice. It's a coincidence. I am really interested if this fixes the problem they only told it's rattling from the engine. One thing is my car is sitting for almost 3 months with out even starting the engine while I am on vacation. Maybe that impacts the transmission engine mounts or rusty?

Hi,

I can't see how sitting for that amount of time would affect them. Even if it was pushed into the ocean, they would last longer than 3 months. LOL

Let me know.

Take care,

Hello,

I got my vehicle back from the dealer today. They changed the parts. I no longer hear rattling noise from the engine, chirping noise still exists but it's coming from a high pressure fuel pump they can't do anything for it. I have one more complaint with my vehicle there is squeaking noise from the driver seats. They replaced the whole frame but I think during installation they messed up the plastic area with scratches. I have seen it after coming to my home. I have attached the video below. Is there a way to fix this? I am not sure how a dealership would do this kind of mess.

Hi,

In all honesty, I'm not sure how that could be fixed. Are they actual cuts into the panel? Have you contacted the dealer to let them know what happened?
