My 2003 toyota corolla oil light is on and off and is making a rattling noise

Hi Alicia,
What you are saying is actually terrible news. The flashing oil light means there is a problem with your oil pressure. It could be just a bad oil pump or possibly a low oil condition as well. The rattling sound you here, combined with the flashing oil light is probably telling you that a rod bearing or two maybe a main bearing has spun which either one of those could cause the blinking oil light as well. My suggestion to you is DON'T DRIVE IT ANY MORE until a mechanic with knowledge of inside engines can look at it. Either way it isn't a cheap problem to fix unless you are married to a mechanic. Sorry for the bad news.

This can be a sound made by "cam phaser" engines that Ford made for 4 or 5 years. Usually the noise quits above 2000 rpm as the phasers limit out in their travel. These engines are very sensitive to the correct weight oil being used and a Ford filter being installed.

The noise has been described as a muffled diesel rattle. Owners report stalling, hesitation, poor acceleration, but most do experience vibrations. What is happening is each bank of cylinders is suppose to be synchronized by the phasers. Imagine if half of the valves are firing several degrees earlier or later than the other half of the engine. Since these adjustments constantly change it makes trouble shooting difficult.

Other areas for rattles are the beads in the catalytic converters which may loosen and float inside the converter or even loose baffles in honeycomb design converters.

I have had terrible noises coming from gravel and rocks trapped in between the heat shields of catalytic converters especially if you travel gravel roads. Since you have "knock sensors" you can get driveability problems from the engine trying to misinterpete the knocks and rattles caused by rocks.

Why is my 1987 300e Mercedes making a loud clanging noise at start up?

I would think the honeycomb ceramic "Brick" inside the Catalytic Converter has broken up, makes a terrible rattling when this happens.
