It is called pinging and it is bad for the engine. You could try a beter grade of gas for a while or the ignition timing is not right worst case there is to much carbon build up on the pistons and you will have to pull the spark plugs and put in a cleaner MOST of the time it's caused by a bad EGR Valve-Dirty EGR Valve or NO Vaccume going 2 the EGR Valve.LOW Octane can cause it-BUT if u are using the same gas IT'S probably the EGR Valve & if everything else is the same (like Timing) that HASN'T been Changed.Probably a vaccume hose fell off.

A defective vacuum line can cause a whistling sound when the vehicle is accelerating. A loose belt can also create a high pitched whistle sound.

There are a number of reasons why your car may be making a whirring sound when accelerating. You may have a lose part for example.

If it sounds like its coming from inside the car its probably the fuel pump if not its kind of hard to say.

If accelerating to the speed of sound, the subsonic.

A rumbling sound when a Civic Hybrid is accelerating could be due to an exhaust leak. When there is an exhaust leak too close to the manifold it can create a deeper rumbling noise.

Check the coolant system to make sure you are not low. An air bubble going through the heater core can make an odd sound.

An acoustic pickup is used to amplify an acoustic guitar. Instead of amplifying an acoutic guitar's sound via a microphone, an acoustic pickup can be mounted on the guitar over the soundhole to provide sound amplification.

It sounds to me you are using a fuel to low in octane, either that or your timing is wrong. Try running on 95 or higher octane fuel.

tire or wheel out of balance? broken mount on rear of transmission. I have seen where the threads for the bolts into the trans are ripped out.

Sounds like your water level is running low. Check the level in the radiator reservoir You may also have a leak.

Usually when a car makes squealing sound after accelerating with the heater on, the serpentine belt is a little loose. It likely needs adjusting by a professional.
