Default 04 honda civic automatic running problem.....?

civic automatic ....... lately when im driving my honda it makes a kinda loud constant noise. like its almost in D3 or forcing itself. almost as if it humms louder. i drive it alot due to work, and the more the day goes by the more intense it gets. just got an oil change, its due for one of its major tune ups, but i would like to know if the tune up will help or if i should expect the dealership to tell me that something major is wrong.....

hard to answer a question that deals with the relative intensity of a noise but if you've just started hearing it then the chances are that something is loose and vibrating. Civics are known to have heat shields for the exhaust that come loose and start to vibrate and that could be the cause of your problem. tightening the heat shields for the exhaust is a relatively minor repair.I would recommend you take your car to a Honda dealer and ask them to have a technician or shop forman take a ride with you. They can hear the noise and use their expertise to tell you what the possibilities are at that point. Most dealers will do this as a courtesy and not charge you. they can prepare an estimate for you if the technciian is able to identify the source or they can give you an estimate for diagnosis at that point. You can make a decision if you want to pay for additional diagnosis at that point.Its probably something minor like the exhaust heat shields.hope that helps
