    My accord has about 150k miles on it. I never had problems starting it until the day after I took it to a shop to get my brakes replaced... funny coincidence or scam artists? How can I know? So the day after I drove to the doctors, and when I left, my car slowly turned over and wouldn't catch. I...

    Hey Guys, I've got just over 43,000 miles on my '13 Touring and it finally is giving me a problem. Every once in a while when I press the start button, it just makes a whirring sound and then I have to press it couple of more times before it engages the starter. My battery is relatively new, so...

    So I have an '03 2.4 Accord with automatic transmission that has been having intermittent starting issues all winter. It will start just fine for a while, and then over about 2 weeks, it will slowly start to crank slower and slower each start, until it inevitable fails one day. It will still...

    EDIT: The meat and potatoes if you don't feel like reading my ramblings below. 1. 17mm bolt took almost a half hour of very strenuous breaker bar action to get the bolt out, finally the DW40 kicked in and it came out around the 2/3rds out mark. 2. 14mm bolt is stuck tight. Can use a breaker...

    What happens is I unlock the car, sit down into it as normal, press the brake, and press the push start button. There is a loud screeching noise coming from the engine area. To best describe this, it's identical to when you want to start an engine which is already running. This has happened...

    I'm getting ready to replace the starter on my 05 Ex, 4 cyl (140K miles). I first looked into OEM but crap are they expensive. I read enough bad reviews of Autozone starters to not feel good about that option. It's such a pain in the butt to replace I don't want to have to do it all over again...

    Having random start issue in my 2008 2.4L 4cyl Accord with 70,800mi About 2 weeks ago I did my 60mi commute to work. When I went to leave it didn't start right away. It just cranked as if the battery was weak. It seemed to be on the verge of starting as it cranked, but wouldn't catch. It took...

    My starter had been getting gradually noisier since the summer, recently getting loud enough that I had it replaced with a rebuilt one by local mechanic a week ago. That day I noticed a dit-dit-dit noise after turning over. A couple days later it went nuts and there was a high pitched sound...

    Hey everyone! I believe I'm having a problem with my starter. I have a 2001 Accord LX, I just changed the starter in April. When I turn the key, the engine does not turn over. The only noise I heard was a buzzing; I opened the hood and I believe it's the starter motor spinning. This lasts about...

    On my 07 Accord with 2.4, most times when starting the engine seems to hesitate as it turns over with a belt squeal as it hesitates. OBD codes not showing anything, MIL light off, etc, etc. Wondering if possibly the starter? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
