    Default Query about Unusual Engine Noise in Honda City iDSi

    Salam PWers!

    From the past few days, I am hearing a rather unusual noise from the engine bay. It sounds like a proper loud 'kar kar'. This sound can only be heard when i have driven for about 2-3KM and AC's compressor is on. This sound goes away when i turn off the AC or press the clutch.
    When I start the car in the morning, let it warm up until it reaches the optimum temperature, and then turn on the AC the noise is not there. It only comes after I have driven for about 2-3KM.
    Could it be the compressor noise? If it is, then why does it go away when the clutch is pressed? Could it be the clutch? If it is, then why does it go away when the AC is turned off?
    This noise started when I got the rockers adjusted and TB serviced a while back. Could it be the noise of a faulty IAC Valve? As i do know, that the IACV is malfunctioning. Could it be sticking and hence making noise?

    Any suggestions and help will be deeply appreciated.

    Regards,

    sounds like belt tensioner noise by the video, but if it goes away with the clutch then the clutch hub springs can be shot too, They are the springs arranged around the splined area of the clutch plate. They take a hard beating everytime the car is moved from standstill.

    Had a similar issue with my car recently. The AC clutch and its bearing were cranky, and the sound disappeared after the replacement. If it is the AC clutch, I suggest an immediate replacement to avoid any serious damage to your compressor.

    i hear a weird noise when clutch is depressed.. got car checked @ stealerships and they recommended changing all set (clutch plate pressure plate and bearing). 1 honest mechanic @stealership adviced that since your clutch is soft and there is no power loss or slipping you throwout bearing is worn out... change it before it damages plates...
    mechanics don't like to open the tranny just to replace small bearing as labor is same and i know for a fact labor required to replace tiny part is infact a lot.
