    My 1998 prelude's engine is louder than usual!

    Okay so i've recently purchased a 1998 vti-r prelude and noticed that the engine, in general is louder than usual. The old owner had replaced the timing belt and the oil filter not too long ago. Please help!

    Congratulations on the purchase, and welcome!

    Let's get a few more details worked out:

    - What do you mean by louder than usual? Is it louder than another car, other cars, etc? Louder than it used to be?

    - What sort of noises is it making? Just general car noises or is there a tapping or a scraping or a grinding?

    - Have you checked the oil level? I know mine used to get a bit noisier when it needed oil and it sounded smoother and quieter when I filled it

    Make sure you dont have any oil leaking from your valve cover, I made the mistake of driving my car with a loose valve cover by mistake, it was louder than normal obviously because you can hear everything.

    Though one thing you will notice is a very bad oil leak from it too
