Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
This could be bearing (rod or crankshaft) rattle or a rod cap that is coming loose- I lost one engine thinking it was only an exhaust line hitting somewhere.
You might try (using appropriate caution around moving parts) using a long screwdriver with the blade touching various points along the cam shaft cover or the block itself and placing the handle end on or behind your ear.
One can often locate the area of the noise fairly accurately.
Modern engine analyzer can often diagnose such a sound and it might be worth a few bucks to have it analyzed before it becomes a death rattle.
BTW, we have 3 vehicles, not counting our kids' various junkers, and each time a new one enters the stables, we buy the Haynes service manual for it; for the few dollars, they can help avoid unnecessary trips to a service shop and give you an idea why the labor costs are so high (if they are.)
