Bubb Rubb?


Does it only do it while in gear or can you hear it while coasting in neutral?

sorry about no to maybe details... i was posting this from my phone..
91 civic zc sohc stock air box.. and fram filter it just started this.. and it kinda sounds like its under the dash somewhere?
i bought the car from a kid that "tried" to wiretuck it and i have been routing wires and vac line and trying to get them in the right spot..
if i give it a little gas on the highway i can hear it. if i give more gas it goes away. and then also when i let off the gas it goes away as well..

Throttle body spacers make a whistling noise sometimes. You have one of those installed?

Unscrew the screw on the throttle body a little bit and that should fix it. But if it doesnt start checking for vacume leaks
