Honda issued a recall of 1998 and 1999 models to inspect and repair the wiring harness under the dash and install a piece of tubing to protect the harness. Various electrical issues can develop if these wires have been damaged.
On certain models the water pump bearing can go bad and cause a growl type noise from the front of the engine.
A clunking noise heard from the front suspension may be caused by the flange bolts for the upper control arm.
A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.
On certain models a faulty radiator fan motor can cause the AC not to cool properly. Replacing the faulty motor should correct this problem.
The AC idler pulley can fail causing a growling noise from the engine. A new idler pulley will be needed.
