This "rattle" is most likely caused by fuel knock and is not injurious to the engine. However if you wish to rid yourself of listening to the sound, you'll have to purchase a higher grade(octane) of fuel. Thank you, Dana

Hi I got a Toyota corolla 160i gle and it was parked very long so wen i started it wen ideling no smoke BT wen hit da fuel it smokes and on take off BT wen driving it does nt smoke


Generally, it may smoke on startup for a few seconds then quit and seem to run fine, then you hit the gas and it smokes again, so Is it white smoke gray smoke or blue smoke? Because IMO it's either a bad head gasket, bad valve guides, rings are going bad ot dumping to much fuel into carb or injectors.

have you had the catalytic converter checked. When they break apart they will make a rattle ling noise. eventually the broken pieces will plug the exhaust and cause a lack of power feeling. When the exhaust is cold hit the bottom of the catalytic converter with your hand. If it rattles it is bad and needs to be replaced.

I have a 1997 2.5 jeep wrangler.when you first start the engine it runs and sounds fine, then after about 20 seconds it begins to have a knocking sound only at idle. when you press the gas you cant hear...


It may be piston slap. This is caused by either engine wear with the piston bores being too large for the pistons, or by poor manufacturing tolerances, or a combination of both.

To test for this, start the engine up first thing in the morning and run it for about thirty seconds while you listen carefully and memorise the sound and intensity. Turn the engine off quickly, remove the spark plugs and put two squirts of motor oil into each cylinder. Reinstall the plugs, start the engine up again and listen. If you have piston slap the noise will have been greatly reduced or even eliminated for about thirty seconds seconds and then returns.

The fix is to rebuild or replace the engine, but if it works just fine then don't worry. Many slappy engines keep going for tens of thousands more mile. The fact that your knocking is only at idle suggests your crankshaft is not to blame.

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.

Rattling noise


I have a 98 blazer that makes similar sounds but it's pieces of the dust shield off the rear wheel assembly that got down inside the brake rotor. Only happens when the truck is going forward
