2001 Honda Accord squeaking when going over bumps ?

4 posts in this topic

Wife car started to squeak so I took it for test drive. After I got back and opened the hood and just had to push down above the wheel well to make it squeak. It was about 15 degrees out with 123000 miles on the car. I'm thinking it might be the strut. What do you guys think? Thanks for any imput.

It could be a couple different thing’s causing the squeak. I would not rule out strut though. I have seen control arm bushings, sub frame bushings and even sway bar links cause squeaks. I would say the best thing to do is have someone push down, while you are under the car. Try to pin point the location/area of squeak and report back. There are a couple other odd ball area’s I have seen squeak, tie rod end’s, c/v joints, but they are very rare.

Try spraying the rubber bushings with a penatrating oil. You will usually be able to rule out the rubber bushings doing that. A lot of times the upper strut bearings will get noisy with age. Being they are rubber also, you can pop the cap off of the upper strut mount and spray them down also. This trick does not always work, but usually does.

Typically it is rare for one of these to make noise. I would take a good look at the upper ball joint/control arm/bushings. Occasionally you'll run into one that has a worn out ball joint or bushing.

The penetrating lube idea is a good suggestion! spray one area at a time to narrow it down. The best part is if the squeak stops you fixed it............until it starts again!! blush.gifgrin.gif

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
