A TSB is not the same a recall. Are you certain there was a RECALL?

For me, the fact that I had told my Honda tech about the problem 3 times prior to them doing anything about it, and while my car was under warranty, paired with the TSB, thats all they needed. If you didnt try to get it fixed while under warranty, good luck.

Mine does the exact same thing. I have no clue what it is.

Hi everyone can anyone help me please.
Am having a 2014 Accord L4 CVT
It's only 32k on its odometer. Last couple of weeks before when I start in the cold morning I heard a grinding noise for couple of seconds. When I checked for VTC actuators it's only for 2008 Accord and HRV models and I couldn't find anything like this for 2014 Accord L4 models. Do anyone know is that a VTC complaint or is that 2014 also affected this problem? If I change VTC does it make any problems to the car and also if I don't change any issues for future. Anyone please help me out. Spending money and it's like this.
Thanks
Thanks

You're under warranty. It's still the dealer/factory's problem, not yours.

The noise almost never happens if I wait for 2 seat belt warning beeps in the run position before starting. My theory is that it has a higher chance of happening if fuel pressure is low. This gives the fuel pump time to run to raise the pressure. It runs for a bit longer than the length of two seat belt warning beeps to "prime" after turning the key to the run position with the engine stopped, and also runs continuously while the engine is turning. You can only hear the fuel pump running in the back when the engine is stopped and you're in a very quiet location.

We have a 2013 Accord LX and we are having this exact issue. I found this post and wanted to let people in on some 'new' information. We brought it into the dealer since we are still under warranty, they diagnosed it as the VTC actuator issue and scheduled us with an appointment which was supposed to be for tomorrow. I called to confirm and was told there is a new service bulletin that is out on the newer body style. The service bulletin specifically says not to replace it, that a new one is currently being engineered to fix the issue. Of course, no date was shared when that new part would be available. We're in a holding pattern until they engineer a new one and it becomes available.

While I'm glad they're not throwing another faulty part in, I am concerned that as we continue to drive, this could cause engine degradation as their original service bulletin states. It's easy for them to say its not that big of an issue, but they're not the ones on the hook for a huge service bill if it is. Just thought this was valuable information to share with anyone else going through the same ordeal we are!

2008 Accord EX with 114K miles. The VTC grinding is there for 1.5 seconds at almost every start in summer or winter. I haven't fixed it and not planning to either.

It is good practice to turn the key to the ON position and leave it there for a couple of seconds and then starting the engine. I do this on my Nissan Sentra because of a fuel pump issue. It still works, and has never stalled on me, but after 122,000 miles, fuel pump still works. It makes sure that there is fuel in the engine when it starts, instead of a dry start. If this practice makes the VTC grinding noise go away, keep doing it.
