It can be the cam belt or the serpentine belt. The cam belt must be replaced every 90,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. Replace the cam belt if it is due for replacement. Inspect the serpentine belt and replace if you see any cracks or fraying. If the serpentine belt looks fine or you replace it and the noise is still there, replace the cam belt no matter when it was last replaced. It can be the idler pulley for the cam belt needs replacing and is not holding the correct tension on the belt. This can cause the belt to break even if it is new.

Does a 1992 Honda Civic 5-speen fit into a 1990 Honda Civic?

Honda civics engines and trannys are interchangeable. you could even put an acura integra motor into a Honda civic. the only one you may have a little trouble with is the prelude motor. from what ive learned, as long as there both the 4 cylinder, then they have the same motor mounts. so, you could swap your 90 motor with a 2000 k-20 from a Honda civic si. which the only thing is i think the shift linkage, because its a 6speed. yes, it interchanges. but you got a lot more options than that.
