2001 Nissan Maxima SE-rattling noise for 4 min after start

Hello,

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?

Thank you for the help!

This only happens when the Car is Cold???? It is the Exhaust Manifold. You need to Replace the Exhaust Manifold Gasket and check the Rest for Tightness.

The rattle that you hear is the upper timing chain tensioners, they can be changed without doing the entire timing chain job, which is really expensive and difficult.

Maxima - terrible vibrations in low speed


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
