Interesting. There are several things which can make that sound. Oddly enough, some Automakers use pellets in the Catalytic converter and when they lose the partitions inside the converter they tend to rattle like that. Another related area is the shields on the Catalytic converters. Sometimes the welds break and the shields flap against the pipes. Third, if you travel gravel roads the stones kick up get inside the shields and rattle.

Moving forward you have the A/C clutch bearings which can make that sound before they altogether cut loose.

Transmission Torque converters on automatics make that sound very close to failing. As long as the engine is running it does not have to be i gear.

But an individual valve in an engine will not make that sound. A broken sparkplug tip could make a noise but you would have a missfire.

There are roller bearing pulleys on the pulley system for the Serpetine belt. Any of these devices could make noise. Besides the A/C compressor, your Alternator and even your Power steering pump can
make noise.

Please rate my info.

Car surging at idle, and making humming noise.


I can relate my experience with a similar noise on my 1994 car with Traction control. A electric valve in the air intake made a "Hum" or "Buzzing" noise when malfunctioning. For my car, the valve was suppose to reduce engine RPM so the wheel spin was stopped by choking off the air to the engine.
So the electric valve on your engine may be getting a bad signal from the Traction control system especially since you are not applying power. Or simply the electric contacts in the part you mention are worn out and "buzzing" because the contact points are burned out and can not connect.

Injector clicking noise


Are you sure this isn't a valve train related noisy? Injectors aren't that loud. Use a mechanics stethoscope and listen to the noise or have a shop listen to it for you.

2002 2.7 liter chrysler has a knock in the engine. sounds like it is coming from the valves


if the car has alot of miles on it , a little bit of top engine noise is nothing to worry about. if the car does'nt have alot of miles on it or the noise is real loud then you may have a lose valve or need rocker arm ajustment.

I have a 1994 standered nissan altima... when I turn on the car and rev the engine there's no noise... The minute I put the car in first gear and take off there's a rattling noise that increas


Could be a long list of things.
A mechanic would take a test drive and listen under different conditions.
Causes could include transaxle problems, exhaust rattles, worn motor mounts, even valves in the engine.
The difference in idle and moving is a load on the engine and transaxle and the engine shifting position.

Tikking noise coming from engine


Yes, you're right, those could be the cause. Also, possible it's a collapsed hydraulic valve lifter, if your car has hydraulic operated (from engine oil) valve lifters. At any rate, it sounds like something loose in the valve train-valve lifter with push rod engines; or cam followers {rocker arms) with overhead cam engines that push on the top of valve stems .
Check a repair manual to see if your engine has valves that can be and need adjusting. Engines with valve lifters do not require periodic adjustment for proper valve clearance. Engines with rocker arms do require checking the valve clearance every couple of years or so.

Hi , I've got a tapped noise on my Sonata 2.0 L GL4. Can anyone help please ?


You may have low oil pressure due to a plugged passage, have you tried flushing the engine with any of the commercial engine flushes out there, shops also do this service. It is also poss that the noise is not the valve train but piston skirt slap.
