1998 Honda Accord LX pinging
It only occurs under mild to moderate acceleration (3-5k rpms) and seems to occur most between 3 and 4th gear.
I have continually complained to my local Honda service dept. about this pinging and every time they claim to have adjusted the torque or ran some engine cleaner through and said it should be fine from then on.
They assured me that the grade of octane I am putting in the car does not matter.
My wife and I are really disappointed in the performance of our Honda since her family has driven Hondas for 12 years now with absolutely no troubles.
Anyone else out there experiencing this pinging problem and does anyone have any suggestions?
