Ankit, can you share with us where you got your 'extensive service' done?
I have a 2003 Vtec done about 67000kms....

Noo I don't do that. I upshift and downshift at appropriate RPMs, not allowing the engine to "Lug".

It's not a clamp or exhaust noise issue. It's straight from inside the engine, like it happenes in old M800 or M1000. It used to come from our 1992 M800 if there was no water in the radiator. But mostly referred to engines that become old and haggered or not maintained well.

Arush / Autopsyche.

I got my own spares though. Had a 'TO DO' list of about 30 items. I was very pleased with the end result. A lot of attention was given to even minor things.

It could something as simple as loose tappets. Get them retuned by Honda and see if it goes.

My car has 2 problems.

It starts as a mild sound, increases as I accelerate more and stops suddenly.

As per the discussions in this thread I suspected the pulleys and found that I have a bent power steering pulley. Is this the reason for the vibration and the screeching sound?

Weirdly enough i have the same problem with the vibration either on the dash or just in front of the dash under the hood. But it only becomes audible after a speed of 30kmph so i cant really figure out whats causing it.

BTW since the car i picked up didnt come with the owners manual can anyone guide me as to whats the best engine oil and brake fluid to be used for the car?

I have an OHC Type II 2000 version.

Bent pulley would cause vibrations and hum, not the screech.
Screeching sound means that your drive belt might be ready to snap.
Just check 'em.

The same thing happened to my AC belt.

Any idea how much the original power steering pulley will cost? In the used car market I was quoted Rs 1750. I also checked in GP road and was quoted 800 bucks for the 2nd quality one.

what is used car market ?
dont go with 2nd quality sold at GP. you can ask them for OE HONDA pulley. do check the price at A.S.S.
sometimes, the cost of parts at A.S.S. is almost same as outside.

Anyone tried fitting projector headlamps to the OHC? If yes, reviews, cost and where in mumbai.
Also the crystal headlight assembly of a friend's car has faded (the clear acrylic) and scratched. He plans to keep the car for a year more. Should he buy a OEM (rs. 4000), taiwan (rs2500) or chinese (rs 2000) for a pair?

No idea.

This 2nd quality one you are referring to: is it parts poached from used cars?
Or is it the inferior quality ones?

Inferior quality is definitely a no-no, however, poached parts are worth a dekho.

opps.. I meant the ones I get in pudupet taken off from recovered vehicles. I saw 4 OHC engines out of which 3 had the pulleys intact. I thought of getting one after checking with my mechanic. If the OE would cost around 2.5k I will be getting that itself. But again im not sure if this pulley is the only reason for the vibrations.

Yes, I meant the inferior quality ones. I head that the OE ones from the old market is better than these.

Another issue cropped up 3 days back. I was going on a trip to Neemrana Fort in Manesar (which is about 120 kms). I stopped to fuel at the Dhaula Kuan HP bunk and saw that my coolant bottle was empty. The service attendant suggested that I get it filled and I agreed.

The HP coolant - HP Thanda Raja - The #@%*!@# service attendant filled the coolant bottle with the green pre-mix coolant till the top. I was furious but was getting really late, so just paid him and shut the hood and moved on. Initially drove steady at 80-100kmph with no hassles. It was when I accelerated and reached speeds of 100+ did I see that the temp needle was rising and the AC used to cut off. Coming down to 80-90 kicked in the A/C compressor again and the temp came down (was still a wee bit above normal).

I called Abhik and he suggested I drain out all the green coolant and fill in fresh water till the recommended level, which I did. Since only 20-30kms were left, the journey was ok after that.

On my way back, the same problem started immediatley if I reached speeds of 100kmph, but the A/C was not cutting off, just the temperature needle was rising. Checked both fans and they were working. Opened the coolant bottle and I was surprised to see that the bottle was again FULL till the top with green coolant; I could also hear it BOILING inside the bottle and was overflowing a bit from the top.

Again emptied the bottle and filled in fresh water till the F mark, but the over heating cropped up once again. It never moved above the 3/4th mark though.

What can I do to correct this? Can the incorrect coolant + water mixture have caused this? I plan to get the radiator flushed and filled with fresh water and coolant.

Can anything else cause this, since it was very speed specific.

I think the thermostat valve is stuck in the 'closed' position. Or is not opening completely. Get it checked by a Mechanic.
