Question about 2003 Chrysler Concorde

Car rattles when I crank it. It gets worse when I drive it. I got the alternator rebuilt, oil change, and throttle sensory fixed...could it mean that I need a new motor?

Engine rattles and loses power when throttling

I had a 1973 Dodge Dart Sport with a 318 c.i. engine (5.2 liter) that started doing the same thing around 173,000 miles. I replaced the main and rod bearings (.001" undersized) and the oil pump and it ran like new until I sold it about 15,000 miles later. Check the crank surfaces carefully for damage when you take the bearing caps off. If they show any rough surfaces you will probably need to have the crank machined.

Oil light reading "stop" car rattling when you press on gas

Check the oil level before driving it. It must be low on oil. Find out where the leak is. Look underneath the car at the oil pan's drain plug-maybe the service guys forgot to tighten it, or worse, cross threaded it. If they made a mistake, take it back to them to fix it.

2008 avenger,4cyl Engine rattles, oil change did not help. It also seemed to be shifting later so did a tune up and had the trans. flushed. 100000 so it was time. Motor almost seems to howl, but is running...

My engine rattled and i had the same things done, the oil change and tune up because i had 83000 miles. That didn't fix the problem and after spending $120 the mechanic said it was the alternator because there was some build up on the side of it which he said is a way to figure out if its going bad or not. Anyway this cost me almost $700 to fix now the rattling noise is gone and all is good. The mechanic said that it was ok to continue driving the car but if the alternator went completely out be prepaid to have it towed once your battery charge is gone.

The truck has a hesitation when starting and it rattles at the bottom end. i replace the gas cap and clean the throttle body

this rattle at the bottom end is my main concern and i would advise you to call a local mechanic and take it for a test drive ,you may need a rebuilt engine if the crank is worn but without have a listen i honestly cannot say and i will have to trust a local mechanic to give you a honest opinion

So I hadn't changed the oil on my 95 Toyota 4Runner for a while and randomly today I started hearing a very distinct rattling sound coming from the area right behind the throttle. The sound gets worse...

I would change your oil and filter ASAP and hopefully that sound goes away. If you are hearing the ticking around the throttle,chances are it is the lifters getting dry and that is why it's ticking. Do your oil change RIGHT AWAY and then stay current or you motor will be toast if it isn't already.

Good Luck

Loud ticking/knocking/rattling sound when I start/accelerate

hi is it miss-firing as it sounds like a knocking noise can be anything but if you can feel it on the accelerater pedal then the noise sounds like its on the inlet valve side which would transfere the noise up the throttle body where the accelerater is located it could be something as simple as a tappet come loose to a burned valve you need to have a look do a compression test and take the rocker cover off see if theres anything come loose yates210456
