Default 95 Accord knocking

I've got a 95 Accord. Just last night I began to notice a knocking
sound that could also be felt in the floorboards/pedals. Drivers side,
feels like its coming from the axle or somewhere. Within the couple of
miles to my house it went from being barely noticeable to much worse.
It happens when I'm driving straight, and only when I'm not on the gas.
Any ideas?

There are several causes. I will list a couple of them:
1. Worn CV joints
2. Worn driveaxle bore in differential case
3. Differential gear noise
4. Loose engine or transaxle mounts


You may want to climb under the car to find the source of the noise or
take it to your mechanic and have him or her place it on a lift.

Jason's list is good, and I'll add that CV joints have often been the
culprits when throttle-sensitive knocks were tracked down in Hondas.

----------------------------------

What would you do if the wheel fell off? Get the tire iron out of the
trunk and check your wheel nuts.

I tend to try the most obvious thing first.

It's cheapest too. :-)

==================================

When it sounds like the wheels are going to fall off, that's what you
check first. Tire iron should be in the trunk.

Stay safe.
