2001 Nissan Maxima SE-rattling noise for 4 min after start
I have a 2001 Maxima. When I start the car, there is a vibrating/rattling noise that comes and goes for about 5 minutes. Then it goes away for the rest of the time the car is on. It is coming from the front, somewhere in the engine compartment, but I cant isolate it. Do you have any ideas?

Did you find the prolbem? Im having the exact same problem you have. Mine is doing it after it died and I replaced the starter but now it wont start and the fuse eng cont 1 keeps getting burned out instantly
A bad tire, a loose wheel, a loose tie rod end, a bent rim, (tire
balance at higher speeds), a piece of rust or whatever caught between
the rim and brake rotor, or between the brake rotor and hub. Have you done anything to it prior to this starting?
I had this issue and it was one of my winter tires about to blow out, showing signs of weakness.. hopefully this helps!
I have the same issue with my 2004 maxima.The service techs said it was the timing chain tensioners .Since they are hydaulic and they powered by the oil in the car .It is recommended to purge the the engine every time the noise starts to come back. I brought some an it really freaking work because I started to run it into a tree and go buy a toyota
