Rattle under engine while driving

There is a rattle/knocking which appears to be coming from under the engine. Sounds like something is loose. I was wondering, because it is an all wheel drive, could it be all the extra stuff thats under there??? Its quite noticeable. Cheers Mandy

Could be possibly be a loose heat shield. Also check alternator pulley/decoupler.

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: 04 Endeavor rattling noise

I had the same problem! I crawled underneath the car and discovered that a heat shield on the exhaust header pipe was corroded and rattling against the exhaust pipe. (Before the muffler)
I removed the portion and clamps and solved the problem. Give it a try.

SOURCE: Jeep CJ7 clutch/gearbox rattle

it could be a universal joint and not the trans at all.Put your jeep in park and get under it and check for play at each end of the shaft(try turning it by hand counterclockwise and clockwise then try moving it up and down and side to side) If there is any play at all you, need universal joints. Your jeep may also have a hanger bearing.....Check it for play as well
I hope this helps! Keep me posted.

SOURCE: starts hard and rattle noise under car

I have had both of these situations happen to me and they are completely unrelated.

The Rattle: If you have the factory wheels with the olds center caps, take them off. My husband tightened every screw on the car until he took the center caps off my wheels, and lo and behold, NO MORE RATTLE.

The Hard Starting: If you notice it starts hard and the RPMs are high, your throttle cable is sticking. I have this exact same problem with my 99 Intrigue GLS. The only way I can get it to quit is start and restart the car until it quits. Obviously not the best solution, but I would check your cable first before trying anything else.

My car engine rattles at times while driving and the check engine light turn on and off.Its a 3cylinder EJ-DE engine 1000cc.


check when the "rattle" is occurring
if it is under light acceleration. under load at low rpms or on a hot engine
it will be detonation ( uncontrolled spontaneous combustion) and the knock sensors will be indicating and reporting by the engine lights
check this by having the fault codes read
the code should appear in the p 0320 to p 0337 bracket of knock sensor codes if that is the problem
it is caused by timing or air/fuel ratio so other codes may also appear

How do I remove the rear tailgate inner panel so i can replace the wiper motor and sort out an annoying rattle??


Most door panels have push lock retainers you just have to pull the panel off by prying around the edge. they make a special tool for this but you can use a flat screwdriver just pry close to the plastic pins under the panel

Rod knock upon start


Not sure on model but to me sounds like its a dodgey valve lifter when the seals start to go they cannot hold the oil and when there under pressure they basically empty them selves hence when you turn the engine off and restart you get a rattle sound untill the valve fills again as long as the cars running ok leave it untill you have to replace them unless there easy to do sone are sone are a pain

Rattling noise coming from my 2005 mazda 6's engine. it only happens when i drive slowly such as going through kfc drive through


Good evening.
If this is a tinny type of rattle and it only happens at certain RPM's I would look for a loose heat shield over the exhaust pipes. Have someone apply the throttle until the rattles begins and listen under the car with a long screwdriver or a yardstick. Use the screwdriver to push on the various shields surrounding the manifold and pipes until the rattle stops. then use a hose clamp or two to tighten them up.
Also I see a lot of catalytic converters that become loose internally and rattle around inside it.
The only cure for that is to replace the converter.
If this rattle is an internal engine noise you should have an experienced mechanics ears give you an opinion.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Loud instant 2-3 second rattle around the under


Check all braces under your car. Not just visually, put hands on each and every brace. Sounds like one might be loose or broken. Hope it's as easy a fix as mine was.

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.

Rattle


Jack up the car when exhaust is cold, grab any heat shields to see if they are loose. You can also tap them with something to see if they vibrate. It's very common for the heat shield to rust and a corner can break free, making the annoying rattle. I've fixed this with a coat hanger cut to secure the loose shield, or a screw installed to hold it tight.
