SOURCE: 2001 ford Explorer - engine rattling - is that timing belt/chain

What engine is this? if it is the 4.0L then talk to the dealer there is a recall on the camshaft drive chain hydraulic tensors, these will cause a rattle noise.

SOURCE: noise under hood like rattling sound

Try checking the heat shields on the exhaust pipe up front under the car. Alot of times they will loosen up, and begin to rattle. You can ither remove them, or try to clamp them.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: rattling noise during start up.

check your starter and see if it is loose, this will cause it (starter) to use more amperage to start which leaves less amperage for the rest of the electrical system (maybe the long start problem too), hope this helps, let me know

I have a 2007 mazda cx7,it makes a very loud noise from the engine.like a broken timing chain,but drives well apart from the loud noise at all times hot or cold its the same sound loud rattling sound.from...


could be time for a new timing set. depends how many miles are on the engine and if something has gone wrong. they don't last forever and the belts need to be change every 75k to 100k to save doing damage to the valves and piston if it were to break. the chains will last a lot longer but still wear out

When car starts slow has a rattling noise coming from the engine until it gets warmed up


My best guess would be that the timing chain tesioner which is hydraulic, is not supplying enough pressure to the chain and it's slapping against the guides. You might try using a lighter weight oil or switch to a 5w-30 synthetic and see if it resolves the problem.

Rattling/clinging when car is cold. Stops soon after.


not the water pump as the noise will remain constant hot or cold
you leave very important details like make . model , year and engine type petrol or diesel so answering becomes a hit and miss affair
if the engine has a timing chain it indicates that the hydraulic adjuster is loose until oil pressure is built up which equates to a badly worn chain
next if an incorrect oil filter was used , the oil will drain back over night and , chains, rockers, hydraulic lifters will all rattle until pressure is built up
incorrect oil viscosity will drain down quickly and will take time to build up pressure as well
you may have to find an accredited service shop and leave it there over night so that the diagnosis can be made in the same conditions for them as for you and then get a quote

relax -- the nicest thing about a timing chain is that it should last as long as the engine does . . .

Rattle in front of engine when running. Was told may be timing chain? 160,000+ miles no service history


I had a nasty 'rattle' in the front of my engine on an older truck of mine (around 190,000 miles) and it was the timing chain. The guide for the chain had broken and caused my timing chain to rub against the front cover and start eating it's way out (the rattle). Got it fixed, new chain and replaced the front cover as well and everything is fine. Good luck, I hope this helps.

2000 4.0 sohc explorer cold start erratic, almost stalls levels off at 900 rpms, no codes,replaced iac.- iat, tps,ect,ckp,cmp sensores within spec. timing chains rattle at start up HEELP!!!!


timing chains rattle at start up HEELP!!!! <<<<< This Will NOT Set A Code And WILL Cause EP Engine Performance Problems, If the Timing Chain DEVIATES More than 8 Degrees it is NO GOOD for OPTIMUM Engine performance.
The Fact that you have NO CODES Lieves DIAGNOSING it Fairly Simple. Morning Starts (COLD START) is a CLOSED LOOP Condition and by the time it warms up it closes LOOP and the ECM takes over the Timing, and compisates for the LOOSNESS of the Timing Chain by ADVANCING / RETARDING the Timing. thus Good Running when Warmed up. Hope & I Wish you Good Luck with it.

I have a 2001 Ford ranger supercab that makes rattling noises. It has a 4.0L SOHC. It makes a very fast and loud metallic rattle wich softens anfter about a second or so when I first start it for the day....


4.0l's are notorious for valve rattle on cold start-up. There is really nothing you can do to make it go away short of completely replacing the valve train in the top end, and that isn't a permanent fix. It's is an top end oiling issue from the factory. Just don't race your engine on cold start-up until the rattle stops.

The rattle in the transmission sounds to me to be more of a loose dust shield/heat shield around the transmission or exhaust than a mechanical issue.
