We have 2010 Honda Accord, 126000 miles. I didn't use it for a few months, our daughter drive it. I always liked sound this Honda produced, but now I believe the engine produces strange and disturbing me sound. Especially on cold engine and low speed, but I hear it on highways too. Something is going to die? Not sure it's a bearing, but something from starter and alternator area. Official Honda service says the engine is in perfect condition for 126000 miles. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! I'm not sure what I'm listening for in the video? It sounds to me to be a perfectly well running engine. Sounds like most Honda engines I've listened to in the past (which don't have issues, lol). I can hear the injectors ticking just fine. There's absolutely no rod/bearing knock I can tell, but that usually doesn't show itself at idle. It usually is pronounced during revving or under load. Mar 26 at 15:39
