My manuel trans. 2001 for focus has a rattle sound and vibrates a bit when starting. It seems to go away after it warms up a bit, but it is getting progressively worse and the vibration is lasting lon


I had a 1984 Mustang 4 cylinder that match the symptoms of your Ford Focus. I found that it was the core inside the catalytic converter had broke up and started to rattle. Not saying this is your problem but a possibility. Another possiblity, exhaust bumping the body of the car.
The wer wer wer sound you hear going over uneven ground is probably not related to the other mentioned. It sounds like the four wheel independent suspension adjusting to the terrain. Cool temperatures help promote this noise due to rubber bushing that your vehicle has in the suspension areas. Annoying, but considered normal. Hope this points you in the right direction and helps. Let me know what you found. Later, Todd

My 2008 nissan armada has a rattle noise coming from the front brake area during driving over uneven road surfaces.


Hi,
Better check the spring and spacer for the disc pad that might have lost or didn't reinstall properly when you replace it with a new pad.
That usually the sound when those small parts are missing.
Hope that helps you out.

Thanks for asking FixYa!

Warning light comes on and off on 1999 audi a4 avant 2.4 v6 and i also have a rattling noise comming from drivers side front mechanic cant find the problem


A flashing check engine light means that there is a misfire in one or more cylinders. If a cylinder is not firing, it will cause uneven power output which can translate to a vibration which could be the cause of your 'rattling noise'.

Hope this helps!

Car rattle when driving on smooth road noise coming from all 4 corners ford puma when going over bumps etc . totally worse on an uneven surface . any ideas ?


I think you should check brake calipers and brake pads. The suspension is in constant motion and the shock dampening for the body is suppose to isolate the body.

There are compounds like "Brake Quiet" which is a rubberized paste that is to be applied between the pads and caliper. You may need new brake hardware which will tighten the pads and calipers to the car.

Check your heatshields on the exhaust system. Gravel can get sandwiched between them and rattle like crazy. Check them COLD and hit them with your hand and listen for rattles. Sometimes hubcaps can pickup stones, but if you work on the brakes you will be taking the hubcaps off anyway. Good Luck on this repair.
