Check oil level add if required. if oil level good then go to autozone and get a bottle of "lucas oil treatment"...add to oil and this should take care of problem.

Hi there , I have Honda cr-v 2007 , 2.0 vtec 65k miles , car I very well looked after . But unfortuntley I have noticed last few days rattling sound coming from the engine , only when revs are coming down...


could be the heat shield fitted to the exhaust this will rattle after a time as it rusts away. can just cut it off or repack it with installation or put a exhaust clamp around it to stop it moving. only other thing that can rattle at these rpm is the cat if it has been damaged but you can tell if you smell eggs coming out of the exhaust this is usaly a good sign its damaged.

(MX3) Hello. When I start from cold there is a kind of rattleing sound when I am stationary and moving. It dies away after a mile or so and in high gear (4th). You dont hear it again for the rest of the...


Next itme you hear it, get out and see if it loader on top or the bottom of the engine. This sounds like typical rod knock. especially when it goes away when you add oil. This would be a rebuild or engine replacement.

I have a 2001 Ford ranger supercab that makes rattling noises. It has a 4.0L SOHC. It makes a very fast and loud metallic rattle wich softens anfter about a second or so when I first start it for the day....


4.0l's are notorious for valve rattle on cold start-up. There is really nothing you can do to make it go away short of completely replacing the valve train in the top end, and that isn't a permanent fix. It's is an top end oiling issue from the factory. Just don't race your engine on cold start-up until the rattle stops.

The rattle in the transmission sounds to me to be more of a loose dust shield/heat shield around the transmission or exhaust than a mechanical issue.

Hello, I purchased a 2003 Hyundai XG350 last month. When I start the car, put AC or defrost on, and then start driving there is a screeching noise that lasts for 10 seconds and then goes away. If I stop...


See if it goes away when you turn the A/C off. The a/c comes on when you sre in the defrost so yo don't hit the windshield with hot air. The screaching is more than likely the A/C clutch trying to engage, that why it was overlooked or ignored by the mechanic. It is a common thing. The battery should be allowed to recoup from the starting of the car which a few minutes of running woll help so the a/c clutch gets full battery voltage to function.. Turning on the defrost and /or the A/c after about 3 minutes of warm up. Open your hood and have someone turn the a/c on and off, you can hear and sctually see the a/c clutch doing its irritating thing.But keep your fingers out off the engine and don't lean over it with loose clothing. Good Luck, Ned
