I have a 1998 Honda Accord EX V-6 (~135K Miles). Sometimes when I shift
the car into reverse, it makes a very loud noise (as in so loud, that
passengers will sometimes gasp slightly). I've taken it into my
mechanic, but since the noise is intermittent I can't reproduce it.
Does anyone have an idea what this could be or how I could be of
assistance to my mechanic in diagnosing it?
About the noise:
It sounds kind of like a *CRACK*
or a very pronounced click. I *THINK*
it happens after the car is already in gear. It only happens when
shifting into reverse.
