Rattling when doing what? if it rattles when it is running or when it is driving, this will tell you roughly where to look. If rattling while idling, coming from engine or transmission. If you ONLY hear it when you are driving, check you U joint. they can wear out and start to rattle and clunk sometimes, especially when going in and out of gear...reverse to drive etc...

Why when i accelerate a harsh rattling in rear of car?


it could be something as simple as a broken exhaust hanger, take a look underneath, move the muffler and see if you hear it. I could also be a heat shield that has come loose.

Stuck in neutral


If you can select gears then it is not stuck in neutral. To be stuck in neutral means that you can only move the lever sideways and no where else. Now the problem is probably the clutch is in constant disengaged position This is from a hydraulic lock in the system from a faulty master cylinder/ jammed cable. As 4 gear is a straight through gear( Input shaft is connected directly to out put shaft) then the 2 causes for this --one not properly engaged and 2 loose or misaligned gear box bolts at the bell housing. So check hydraulics system/ cable and check that the gear box is not loose

Gear ratio rearend


The pining noise you are hearing is detonation in the engine and comes from incorrect air/fuel ratio making the engine run too lean, It is spontaneous combustion occurring before spark and tends to drive the piston back down the bore. It is detrimental to the engine and should be rectified asap. Run fault codes and look for sensor problems. Vin numbers are unlikely to show the gear ratio of the rear end as there are 4 ratios for each model of car. Jack up on side of the rear . count the number of turns the pinion does for each revolution of the wheel . Divide that by 2 ( side gears in diff carrier multiply by 2 when driving one wheel)and you will get the ratio. So 10 revolutions of the tire gives 35.5. revolutions at the pinion equals to 17.5 or a ratio of 1.75: 1 ratio

I have a whine in my drive train i think its in the rear end because when i take out of gear its still there i only hear when i'm coming to a stop what can i do?


take the backing plate off of the differential and use a magnet to check for metal. some fine metal dust is normal look for small pieces. inspect gears closely. get a gasket and gear lube before you start. check the universals on the drive shaft. i had a camaro once that had noise seemingly coming from the differential and it turned out to be the universal. noise from the suspension can be tricky to locate since the sound radiates throughout the chassis. you can raise the rear end and spin the wheels. have someone help. also check the brakes thoroughly

Check the rear area of your truck and see if the tail pipe is near anything, since there is torque on the motor and drive system while you are stopped at a llight, or you can block the tires and put on e/r brake at home with truck in gear, then look and listen underneath truck to find source of rattle

2001 Kia Optima - Train sounding noise underneath


Sounds like the bearings are going out in the rear hub(s). Drive the car for a few miles (if it is safe to to do). Park it and check to see if the wheels are warm, or even hot, in their center cap area. This will indicate excess friction from bad bearings. Replace the whole hub. It's an easy DIY job, if you are so inclined. Part cost should be just over $100. per axle. Shop around to find a good price. I recommend Timken hubs. best of luck.
