Loud Clatter in my 1992 Taurus

I have a 1992 Taurus that has a loud clatter like sound when I start it and dies when I take my foot off the gas. I'm told by a friend of mine that it's a pulley problem. Can anyone jhelp? It is fixable isn't it?

Better make sure it hasn't jumped time. Can cause major expensive problems if you continue to run it.

This totally sounds like a Muffler Flange has come Loose. Have someone get in and lightly hit the Gas while you walk around the Car and find out exactly Where the sound is coming from.

What's the easiest way to quiet down my chevy s-10 2.2l 2001? It makes a loud clatter noise when its running but after it warms up it almost goes away,its got to be a lifter wouldn't you think cause that's...

If it is a lifter then change the oil and add Rislone to the oil. It is an additive that has been around 50+ years and works great to free up sticky lifters. Start changing your oil more often will also help.

99 saturn SL2 with loud engine clatter

You will need to remove the valve cover and inspect it, otherwise it is anyone's guess what the noise is.

My 98 ZX2 has what sounds like valve clatter

The fuel injectors in the ZX2 are very loud. They have a high metallic clicking sound. This is often mistaken for valve chatter but since we don't have adjustable valves, you likely don't have chatter.

My escort was running fine it set in the driveway about 1.5 hrs went to start it and started clattering

you may want to check your oil level.if it is ok,it may be your water pump,although that is more of a squealing sound

ThenI start my engine it sounds like diesel and no power

how is the oil level and pressure?, how many miles on engine? is this a loud knock or rather a clatter/ticking noise? knock is engine rod or crankshaft bearings, clatter loud ticking is valve follower noise. how long before it (the noise) goes away?
