1997 Acura 1.6EL rattle underneath front end

My Acura 1.6 EL (Canadian model) has a rattle that sounds like it is coming from underneath the front end. When I start it I hear a rattle for a second or two. I also hear a rattle when I step on the gas from a stop for a couple seconds, when I slow down below 10 -15 kms/hr and when I come to a complete stop I will hear the rattle on and off until I step on the gas again.

What part is located in the front of the engine between the engine head and the radiator, it is making a rattling sound at high idle


lots of parts, alternator, water pump, a/c compressor lower area . many of them are on the serpentine belt. the pulleys and tensioner can make rattles. you need to confirm which part has the rattle or vibration, use a stick or screw driver. touch one end on the part and the other near your temple...any noise/vibration coming through?

fiind which one it is. lower noise on the crank can also sound like its coming from up front and that's a deep rattle.

Sounds like a body weld issue ( as this is a unitized body design). Several US GM models prone to this. No real good cure.

What will my car sound like, if the timing chain needs to be replaced? I have a 1997 Nissan Altima.


there will be a rattle the front of the engine. the end with all your pulleys and belts on. And it will be hard to work out if it's in the engine or the pulleys.

It is a common that a TICKING coming from the front of the engine is the timing chain guide.
