Default Engine clatter on acceleration. Any ideas?

1.6L Civic. Clatter is only audible AFTER warm-up. Is at its loudest from 2000-2500 RPM. Only on partial-throttle acceleration (quite at full throttle). Not at idle, not while coasting, not while maintaining speed. Only under acceleration.

Won't do it (or just can't hear it) in 1st or 2nd gear. Does it in all other gears.

maybe a misfire. Check the plugs and wires.

Might want to have the gear box, transmission checked. The teeth on the gears get worn down if it is an older model.

Suspect carbon build up on the backs of the valves. This is causing a pre ignition ping or knock. A product called SEA FOAM is great at removing this build up and it sells for about $10.00 per can. You will be surprised at the results. Good Luck and this is a cheap fix.
