It looks like it is time to replace your timing belt; the rattle is an indicator of the belt being stretched, and when it is stretched, it makes a rattle noise.

Timing chain tensioner


If this is a 4cyl., check the drive belt tensioner first, there is a TSB for a tensioner rattle that is a common failure . To test , remove the drive belt and start the engine and see if the noise is gone,

My 1998 sebring 6cyl makes a metal on metal noise on the side of my engine by the belts i tried greaseing all the pullys and i used belt noise sparay but it becomes lower and then it becomes higher ???...


sounds to me from the brief description like you have either a water pump rattling, or a timing chain coming slack. Is the noise coming from the alternator? Never grease pulleys, ever. also the stop squeak spray is bad for your belts. Don't know why they even sell it. If you listen carefully you may be able to pin point the rattle. Is this a tick tick tick, or a rattle rattle rattle? Does sound like a water pump rattle or timing chain slap though. Hope this helps

It's like a rattling loud noise that comes out from the camshaft sprockets and timing belt on my 1998 dodge caravan 2.4 engine. it started while running on the road.


Could be the timing belt tensioner. They are known to make a rattling noise when worn and/or the belt has stretched....When is the last time you had the belt serviced? They should be replaced and pulleys inspected at 100,000 miles. Gates recommends 120,000 miles on their belts. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I own a 2000 Nissan Frontier crew cab v6 - I was wondering what would happen if my timing belt broke - I just turned 107000 mi. - would the motor lock everyting up - or just the belt broke - also I...


If your timing belt breaks some of the valves will stay open and the pistons will come up and either break the valve or could put a hole in a piston. This is very costly. The rattle could be the belt tensioner

Just had the timing belt changed for my 2004 pt cruiser and the engine is making load rattling noise.


Hopefully something is just loose and rattling around. The bad alternative is that the timing belt job was botched. I would not drive the car , get the mechanic to come over and find the problem , or he can tow it back to his shop at his expense.

2002 cavalier engine noise


Hello there Its a Known problem with these engines..The lifters are usually the case to thes problem or the rocker arms are coming loose.Take off valve cover and start to find the bad one..Oil will leak over head but is the only way to pin point the problem.If the sound is a little lower in the motor It might have a sloppy rist pin in the cylinder causing the piston to slap the side walls..If it does it at an idle or under a load its the rist pin.If it does it at all different rpm and doesnt matter if its under load its the lifter area.Now the timing chain.Could case all thee above.So a way to check that is as long as you got the belt off grab a hold off the crank pulley and rock it back and forth.If you feel it grab a few inches side to side iits really loose and thats your problem.If it doesnt have much slop back and forth and turns the cam quickly the move on to the other parts I have stated.These steps will help you to solve the problem.I hope this helps you and good luck..Have a great after noon...
