do you have a RAM air intake? this could be the problem. Because if its one of those aftermarket ones, that doesnt hold up very good that could be the reason, this is what happened to my buddy today anyways.

What rpm does this begin at? If it's near 1900-2000, then it's probably the exhaust problem common 2 5th gen accords.

Go to Honda and ask for the "buzz kit" for the rattle around 2000rpms. I had mine fixed. Its a recall.

^^^exactly. Same thing with me. It's a problem that all 5th generation accords have. Honda released a fix kit 4 it, and it works. Go 2 the local Honda dealer and ask em about it.

Hey guys, I just called my local honda dealership too because I have the same problem on my 95 accord and they said that the buzzing sound in the exhaust system is not a recall. But they said I can buy the "anti-buzz kit" for about $125 Canadian and that anyone can fix the problem as long as they have the kit. Anyways, I know the sound is annoying as hell but I hope this info helps.

Wow. You learn something new everyday. The dealer that fixed mine 2 and half years ago told me it was a recall and it was free. That was before I started working there. Thats interesting.

Hey guys, does this exhaust buzzing affect the performance of the accord? Thanks.
