Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Rattle noise when I accelerate, like something is rattling around. Husband thought it was under console or front seat. I took it to mecanic and now replaced serperntine belt, 3 months after it was alr

I have same problem and today took it to Mechanic as we want to sell ours. We were told serperntine belt was loose, so they replaced it. However 3 months ago we already paid fpor brandnew belt, so now I am wondering if we were ripped off by mechanic one or mechanic two. Would love to know the answer as feel pretty bad about it now. The first mechanic put 7PK 1930 size, second mechanic said it was too loose so put on 7PK 1905. Which one is right for our 2007 camry?

SOURCE: rattle steering wheel

Sounds like your intermediate steering shaft. Its the slip shaft that runs thru the firewall. They have a slip-stick condition that makes a horrible rattle that you can feel in the wheel. Its a pretty easy repair. Just make sure the steering wheel dosen't spin while you are changing it.

Good Luck

SOURCE: front-end makes a low rattle noise when hitting rough spots

I have a 2002 bravada that is also doing the same thing, most likely if you have 84000 miles on it you probably need to change out the front struts and rear shocks, not cheap to do. I haven't done them to mine yet due to oil leaking out the front seal where the axle assembly goes into the oilpan is leaking and don't know how much that will be to have it fixed. May not be worth doing. But the most likely cause of your problem is the struts. I had it quoted one time and it was around 500-600 just to have the fronts done, so i figured I'd just do it myself. doing it yourself will cost around 350 for 2 struts and 2 rear shocks from oreillys.

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?

on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

SOURCE: rattling noise from front near alternator

Hi.
I think the problem is the power take off for the front fan ,steering etc. Underneath the middle of the car you will see what looks like a small propshaft pointing towards the front with a doughnut shapped mounting bolted to each end. These rubber joints wear and rattle on tick over or low revs cost is about £40 for the 2 from Japarts
Takes about 2 hours to change.Hope this helps Good luck

Why does my 1998 mercury sable rattle when accelerating


Could be the exhaust heat shield has come lose from rusting over the years. Without more diagnosis it is hard to tell what the noise is. What i have suggested is just a common rattle from under the car. Need more to diagnise effectively

Rattle noise when I let go of the accelerator. The faster I go and then slow down, the louder the rattle noise


Have a look at the shrouds around your exhaust system, they are prone to shaking loose and rattle on over run.
Try giving your exhaust a bang ( with your hand when it is cold) and see if it causes the noise . Follow the noise.
Sometimes the baffles fall off inside the muffler and rattle around inside too.
Happy hunting!!

1999 Honda CR-V rattles during acceleration


Usually it is a loose rusted exhaust heat shield or shields.
Slide under and tap the exhaust system and shields from front (on the engine )to back.......there will be at least one rattle heard.

Rattleing noise between 2500-3500 rpms 01 protege


Have you checked the catalytic converter (also reffered to as simply a Cat by mecanics)? It's the first big canister you encounter on the exhaust line right after the manifold and before the resonator and/or muffler. After a while rust and time can cause either the casing itself to come loose and rattle, or the insides themselves break up and rattle around the cat. And being where it is it often resonates sound around the engine compartment, making it seem the sound is coming from elsewhere than it actually is. And while your at it don't forget to check the flex pipe usually connected to the cat also (some models do not have a flex pipe though). If all that is fine, then the other things to check would be the accessory brackets, wire holders and the like. With vibration and time, sometimes they loosen up and start to rattle. Still nothing? check the suspension parts for anything loose (IE. sway bar links, coils springs, tie-rod, suspension tables). Other than that there isn't much in there that can rattle. If you look at how an engine is built, you'll see that there isn't much inside that can rattle around without causing the engine to fail altogether. I'm not saying it can't happen though, but it's highly improbable. Hope this helps

Rattle when accelerating


had the same issue, had someone look and it seems the noise was caused by heat shield being loose covering exhaust system. Have that checked out.
