      Weight will always effect the handling of a vehicle. You drive in it all day mostly by yourself and you become acustomed to it, Get a few people in it and you'll notice a slight lack in power, Steering and braking changes. More bodyroll etc. Its just the laws of physics. A heavier object will always build up more momentum, Take longer to accelerate and longer to slow down.

      Several possibilities; faulty water pump bearing, faulty alternator bearing, faulty idler / belt tensioner pulley. First step, raise the hood, start the engine in Park or Neutral and then just listen for the same sound at the front of the engine for the noise.

    What causes my steering wheel to shake when braking?
    When going down hill and braking my steering starts to shake. Does this have anything to do with needing brakes or power steering fluid?
     
    • Jimm

      Usually, the vibration while braking is due to warped front brake rotors. Simply replace them and the problem will be resolved. When replacing the front brake rotors, be sure to also replace the wheel seal (one at each side) and the wheel bearings at the same time.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.
      For example, they (Rock Auto) list the front brake rotor from around $16.00 and the wheel bearing from around $44.00 each - for your vehicle. Recommend to stick with name brands and the best quality parts for the brakes; look for; Raybestos, Timken, SKF, Bendix, Wagner, and Beck Arnley.
      Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to replace the brake rotors - it's not a difficult task.

      That was just happening with me. I just got my struts replaced and no more noise. Double check to see if your struts are leaking gas or oil. Also, your wheel bearings may be going out. Mine is a 2004 Accord V6.

      Several possibilities; shaking - fauty / worn wheel bearing or front hub assembly, faulty / worn strut mount bearing, faulty / worn suspension bushing. Similar issues possibly for the pulling right - also may consider the front wheels misalignment as possible factor.

      Usually, the clicking or rattling indicates worn / faulty CV joint. Need to replace the CV joint and drive axle as a subassembly. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.RockAuto.com or www.autopartswarehouse.com for the replacement parts.
      For example, they (RockAuto) list the replacement axle shaft with CV joint for around $41.00 per side - for your vehicle.

    No PS assist near full turn like out of garage.
    When driving normally, power steering is perfect. The hard steering only happens during very sharp turns. The belt is tight, no squeal, and fluid is full. The Accord shows 94K miles. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your ...
