Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Rattling/buzz when starting, accelerating, and when AC is on

Just like previous post. The car is well overdue for an oil change, so we'll try that and see what happens. Also sounds like there is a lot of water sloshing around (clogged drain tube?)

Vdj76r turbo diesel v8 wagon. Why does it have an occasional engine rattle when cold?


A brief engine rattle occurs when starting the car because the oil has not reached all of the engine, do not apply accelerator when starting in the morning. On diesel engines, if the oil is not changed regularly, the oil gets thick and loses it's viscosity.

If I need a oil change will my car crank?


That all depends on how far overdue your car is for an oil change! If it is so badly overdue for an oil change that the engine has seized-up, it won't crank. If it is just due (or overdue) for an oil change and no engine damage has occurred yet, it will not have any effect on whether the engine cranks.

Just started having a rattling noise start up. Sounds like something may be loose. The odd thing is is that it doesn't start when I turn on the car, though if I idle or slow down enough it starts up,...


The 2.2 or 2200 four cylinder engine is bad for lifter rattle after the mileage gets up there, timing gears are also noisy in them.. I have had good luck using full synthetic oil, I would buy an engine oil flush kit with the next oil change and then use synthetic, If this noise isnt consistant with engine speed, then i would look at pumps and pulleys on the fron of the motor, sometimes AC pump clutches get squeeky and often rattle when disingaged, try turning the AC or defroster on and of to test for a change in the noise.

If the rattling changes with the revs of the engine, it might be that the valve compensators are either worn or not getting enough lubrication. 20V engines have quite small oil passages travelling to the head. They tend to clog up with gunk if the oil change is not frequent enough.
