    2000 Honda Accord V6 3.0 with 225000 miles. Normally runs great and still does but… rather diagnose and fix the problem before driving it. Here’s a link to a short video I took of the noise. Does anyone know what it is?

    Suddenly the other day upon starting the car I immediately heard this loud clacking noise. Using a metal bar I’ve determined it’s coming from the top of the motor on the rear 3 cylinders area. The noise seems to be the loudest when I put the bar on the power steering pump. I removed the belt but unfortunately the noise is still there so it’s not coming from the power steering pump something extremely close to it inside the motor.

    If anybody knows what would cause such a noise please let me know. In just a minute I’m about to take off the rear valve cover see if I can notice anything. Here’s a link to the video of the noise…
