Probably a worn hydraulic chain tensioner allowing too much oil to leak out into the sump and the pump at idle cannot keep up the oil pressure.. It probably means that the chain is on it's last links--- so to speak

SOURCE: My car makes a rattling sound under the car

Hey Thealmeidas!
Yep, there's a good chance some part of the exhaust system has come loose and is rattling at certain RPM's. Start fault-tracing by checking if any part of the exhaust seems loose to come in contact with anything, or if there's any loose clamps or similar parts hanging onto it. Another quite common reason for rattle is that some part of the exhaust manifold, such as a bolt or hose/pipe has loosened (often due to rust and/or corrosion).
Another possibility is that it's somehow related to the transmission (since you mention putting it into gear). If so that would be another subject.
Good luck!

SOURCE: where is pcv valve on 96 nissan pickup

The PCV valve on the KA24E 4-cylinder is located in front of the oil filter and above the alternator. It points to the rear of the engine.

You will need only two tools; a stubby 19mm open end wrench and a pair of pliers to remove the hose clamp. I did it without removing anything else. Just reach around to the right of the oil filter. It took about 15 minutes. Here is a pic:

SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Maxima RATTLING NOISE from ENGINE

I have a 2002 maxima with 75k mile and heard a rattling which died down after it warmed up.

It was a bad timing chain pulley. Don't wait too long before fixing that!

Car raddles when I put it in drive


If it feels like the whole car (dash & steering wheel area) is shaking at idle in drive then it is often a bad engine mount causing this vibration throughout the car. An actual isolated rattling noise from under the car could be the catyalitic converter if it sounds like its in the exhaust system.

My car is a 95 Nissan Altima is jerking while idling and while driving. There is oil in the area where the spark plugs are. The distrubtor does not seem to be working either.


You need to replace the valve cover gasket.Under the valve cover are four tubes that the spark plugs fit down into. between these tubes and the inside of the valve cover is a series of round gaskets that fit on these tubes. When they get old they leak oil into these tubes.replace spark plugs and wires when you do the job,they are most likely finished.Its a nice job for a Saturday morning,about an hour. Good Luck

My tai light are not working now my turn singles work and brake lights do


Nissan had a recall on the tail lighs 1995. They repkaced the metal tube inside the truck body walls. Try finding the recall in history, I don't remember the year but I took my 95 in to the shop, I replaced a couple lights before the work and haven't had a problem since. Now have 200K miles, valves rattle when cold. I had a short block recall on my V6 in 97 for a cold knock on startup. Short block was replace at 40K miles. Starters have been my biggest problem with the truck.

Rattle in the valve now has no power and hard


pull valve cover and start checking your valve lash and if you do know how i would take it to a shop or buy a repair manuel and a feeler guage from your local auto parts store also check all the rocker arms and valve stems look for brokin valve springs if every thing looks good check valve lash.check timing chain or belt for abnormal wear if its a chain check and make sure its not to loose and if its a belt look for missing teeth on the belt this can cause very serious damage to your engine if its a zero clearence engine.

97 Nissan Pickup transmission swap for 95 or 96 transmission?


yes this will fit, model years 88-97 will fit. I would recommend the newest model you can get, as they improved internal hardware after 93. hopefully this helps
