    1993 Accord:
    Intermittenly a slight whining noise comes from the engine compartment, this
    noise lasts for approx 1-2 seconds and only occurs after the accelerator has
    been depressed, never has happened when accelerating. Did a little
    reseraching and found a technical service bulletin that suggested this might
    be the water pump shaft and can be fixed by adding some water pump shaft
    lubricant to the cooling system. Has anyone had this type of problem? If so,
    how was it fixed? Thank you all in advance for your wonderful insight.

    Knowing the mileage and when the timing belt was changed would help, but
    in the meantime, you could check the inside of the distributor cap for
    red dust (rust).

    If you had said the timing belt was just changed, I'd suggest domething
    else. The water pump lubricant couldn't hurt....

    I think the power steering pump on my '92 LX makes a little noise on
    first start up. I've got 215,000 miles on it, so I'm expecting stuff
    like that. bob

    I saw the other two posts and those people had some excellent advice. One
    other thing you should check is the air filter. Make sure the cover of the
    air filter is secured. If the cover is not secured properly--you can hear
    a whining noise when you press down on the gas.
