Default 1998 TL 2.5 noisy engine normal?

I bought a 1998 TL 2.5 recently and it runs great but when you are creeping
slowly, I hear engine noise. Is this normal? No it doesn't sound like the
normal engine revving, more like a clattering noise. I have never driven
one of these so I don't know if it's normal. Any thoughts as to what it
could be? When the RPMs go around 1500 or so it revs normally again. Do
the valves need adjusting on these?

I have one of these too and found the valves to be a little loud. I
actually have an appointment on Fri. at the dealer and I plan to address
this.

Well, I took it in yesterday and had the valves adjusted. The tech said a
couple exhaust valves were a little tight if anything. I really don't think
the engine sounds significantly quieter. Maybe they're just loud? Btw,
mine has 45k on it.

Default Re: 1998 TL 2.5 noisy engine normal?

Thank you very much MZ

Thanks for getting back to me. I have been suspecting the valves. Afterall,
according to the Acura manual, they require inspection/adjustment every 30k.
My 2.5 TL has 80k miles. I'll take a peak at the valves when I have some
more time this spring. I'm glad it's nothing major.
