Just take it into the exhaust people and they will rehang it with new surports plus the muffler might have baffles broken .

After sitting for a week or so during extremely cold weather, my 1995 Nissan Altima was hard to start. When I did get it started, it was making a loud rattling sound. The noise doesn't go away, but i


rattling sounds like a busted rocker and the valves are loose. when it doesn't start on the first try or so, that sounds like a head gasket. they tend to start better when its hot because it swells some and improves compression. I had a dodge do that but it will only get worse if that's what it is. If you don't get it fixed now you'll eventually warp the heads and be looking at a head job or worse a new car cause its terribly expensive to fix the longer it goes

Loud noise when air is on had belt tension replace still making noise now im told its the engine mount


This is hard to answer without hearing the noise, a 2005 altima it would have to have alot of miles or have been drinen hard to need a motor mount, the compressor could be noisey or may be a loose heat sheild on the exhaust,a squeal noise would be a belt a rattle noise could be a pulley going bad or something loose, when ac is on it puts more strain on engine causing things to shake,i would have a second shop just look at it before doing anything, see if they both come up with the same problem, and dont tell them what the other shop told you about the mount, tell them only after they tell you its something else.

2005 Nissan Altima makes rattling/vibration noise


It is possible that you have some timing chain noise, especially if you have the 3.5L engine. The secondary timing chain tensioners on the 3.5 have a known problem, Nissan has issued a service bulletin regarding this and there is an updated part to replace them. It is not a cheap job, but your dealer may give you some "goodwill" depending on your mileage. If you have the 2.5L the problem may a couple of other things...even more serious! They had catalytic converters that came apart and got ingested into the engine, eventually destroying it. Try googling "Altima rattle" and include your engine size in the search. There is a ton of info on the net about noises in these cars.

I had the same problem, you can replace both the acc band and the band tensor, the vibration comes from a loose band.

2002 Nissan Altima with an oil leak


Don't forget to change the filter with each oil change. When you change the oil, the soot from combustion sticks to the inside of the motor and does not all come out with the oil. Also there is always a little old oil here and there in the motor that does not drain out, and that will give it's color to the new oil. You can have your motor rinsed, but it is more important to change the filter regularly. Stay with one brand of oil, don't switch around. You can change the viscosity (30w/40w) from summer to winter. It's not a great idea to have thick oil in a motor if it gets below freezing outside. A rattle can be a heat shield coming loose, you'll have to have help to find it.
