Default many questions

i have a 93 honda accord Ex 5 speed with plenty of problems for my newbie self

1. why does my car make a weird squeky sound when reversing it only does this sometimes?
2. at a stop and sometimes when i hit the gas my car screeches i figure its my brake pads but could it be someting else?
3. is it normal for my car to rev to 2k rpm on a start then lower to about 1400?
4. what can i do to push some more power out of my car?..im really into trying to beat my friends prelude (stock)
5. how cani fix mpg problems what can i do to make it better?
6. anyone know cheap interior upgrade sites?
7. when shifting my car kinda makes a turbo sounding noise..but the noise is really light i mean you have to concentrate with the windows down to hear it...i heard it cuz i like riding with my windows down listening to my carbon exhaust

actually any help would do...little tips and secrets?...anything would be appreciated

i was thinking on selling my car for a 92 civic hatchy SI and turn it into a sleeper
all black nice little smoked out headlights and tail lights lowered 5% tint all around

then putting all the rest into performance getting a AEM cold air, full exhaust headers back
with ah22 swap neptuned ECU?
good idea?

I can help you with your gas milage! Stop racing your car!! Your engine will appreciate that too. JUST KIDDING. Your MPG depends on how fast you drive your car.Going 65 sucks up a lot more gas than going 45. Your honda 4cylinder should get good gas milage. Maybe run the speed limit and see if that helps.

poser pilot

the noise kinda sounds electrical...not really turbo..maybe thats my imagination...it sounds kinda like a kazoo haha

the prelude i think is a 93 h22 he isnt stock i just say he is cuz he only has a cold air

yea i was thinking the same thing about the civic alot of people have them, id be the only modded accord sedan in my town

you know of anywher i can get a clear hood?...or are those custom made....the hoods you can see right through to the engine

For your idle, the car will fast idle upon start to raise oil tempertures to the engines optimal heat level, once there it will lower it's idle speed. IF it is really cold out it will occasionally fast idle and then return to normal speeds over and over to keep the engine at it's best temperture. Now your idle should be around 750-1000 when not fast ildeling, so you may need to look at adjusting your throttle cable.
