Default Clanking noise in second gear on acceleration?

Has anyone heard a clanking noise coming from under the hood when accelerating in second gear?

After engaging in second for the first time during any single drive, I hear a noise that can easily be described as the noise heard when changing gears on a bicycle. It only happens the first time I am in second (while accelerating). After that first time, I never hear it again until the next time the car is turned off and then driven again.

I have already brought the car into the dealership and I have to bring it back in because it is not gone. It sounds like it is definitely coming from the the front-center of the car near (or in for that matter) the engine.

Mine only makes the sound for like one second when I am in second gear that first time and accelerating. It is not loud to the point where I would hear it over a loud radio, but it is clearly noticeable and definitely an indication that there is something wrong. But, the dealership can't seem to pin-point it.

Bring it into the dealership. If can be demonstrated, which I gather yours can since it is contant, they will 100% take it in to be worked on.

My '08 Si does the EXACT same thing you described, to a Tee. Sounds almost like a click-esque noise like you said, a bicycle shifting gears? Yeah... same here. Only happens once, the first time i shift to second on any given drive sequence. Could just be a fluke, it might be the way they designed the shift linkage or something.

I drove siboii08's car, its not really a clicking sound more like a whinding sound (I can best describe it as when you use your eraser on a school desk, like a woo woo woo sound..lol) It happens at low rpm's expecially on 3rd gear about 15-25mph. but only if you keep the gas lightly pressed. If you release the clutch it stops && when engaged continues. The sounds disapates as you reach higher revolutions.

Nevermind. My noise is completely different, just an abnormally louder clicking noise when i shift into 2nd and hit the gas (as opposed to all my other gears).

That sucks though, I wish you the best of luck with it. Hopefully Honda will take care of ya Click the image to open in full size.

Personally I jus think its too high of a gear for those speeds, but I told him (SiBoii08, he's my neighbor BTW) to take it to Honda anyways.

Default Re: Clanking noise in second gear on acceleration?

Hi! It's been almost 5 years. Has this issue been resolved? Having the exact problem myself (when i let the car sit for just a few mins with the engine off... like stopping for gas or an ATM). It ALSO happens though after engaging in reverse. Then i go to 1st gear then upon shifting into 2nd, there's that clanking noise (also sounds like the clanking noise when engaging in reverse). Of course out of fear i shift to 3rd to make the noise go away. Then i try 2ng gear again the. All seems normal. What could this be? Thanks!
