    Please give more detail. Does the rattling frequency matches engine speed? Do you observe anything abnormal in the car? Does the steering feel normal? Does the rattling disappear under any particular condition?

    the rattling is intermittent (sp?) on-and-off. as you drive it more, the rattling becomes more apparent. The more gas you give, the louder it gets, becomes highly noticeable after driving for about 5-10 minutes, barely noticeable upon starting the car up. anything else i need to tell you, let me know. steering is perfectly fine, brakes are incredible, rattling likes to stay with me cold n hot, thick n thin. rattling gets louder as the engine RPM increases, but doesnt match the engines RPM.

As you might suspect, it is hard to detect a rattle source, unless one actually drives the vehicle. My best guess is that the KNOCK SENSOR is either working erratically, or not working at all. This type of failure more or less matches your description. Have the engine scanned, and if sensor is found damaged, it is easy and inexpensive to replace. Driving for extended periods of time (months) with this noise (knocking engine) , will cause permanent damage to engine.

My corolla altis 2002 model makes noise during idling and when trying to accelerate noise comes more louder and it doesnt have power but i changed the timing kit and the valves,it also shows the engi


I'm pretty good with noises, but to answer your question, you're going to have to describe the noise itself. For example, at idle you hear a clicking, chattering, squeaking or rattle. If you can also let us know where the "noise" is coming from (engine, trans, drive axle) that would also be helpful. Try to be as descriptive as possible, so somebody can help you out. Most people have experienced the same issues and can help if given a better description.

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

2004 Nissan Maxima RATTLING NOISE from ENGINE


I have a 2002 maxima with 75k mile and heard a rattling which died down after it warmed up.

It was a bad timing chain pulley. Don't wait too long before fixing that!

2002 corolla (now 91000 miles) makes rattling sound


Thats good that you are getting a second opinion. A Toyota dealer will be able to check it and see what the noise may be. See what they come up with. I dont think a worn timing chain or guides would cause a low oil pressure problem. But, if it does indeed have low oil pressure, that is a serious problem.

Rattle in low gears when clutch is let out...


Subaru's are notorious for having exhaust rattles from the heat shields on the catalytic converter.

Does the noise go away or lessen when the engine gets hot? I know it seems unrelated, but on my 2002 Impreza it made a lower groan sound at first when ever I would shift gears as the engine speed (RPM) dropped. I put up with it for a year then finally I got a stainless steel hose clamp from the hardware store and put it around the heat shield.

Truly I should just get a new catalytic converter, they are around $200, but the hose clamp stopped the noise.

This might not have anything to do with it your noise. It is a cheap and easy fix though.

Good Luck

Noisy sound coming from the wheel while driving . . .


If it's wheel bearings, they should get louder the faster you go. Also, if you have one going out, loading up the suspension on that side will make it louder. For instance, if you have a bad front left bearing, and you take a right-hand turn at speed on the highway, that will load the left side suspension since the car will roll to the left. The noise would get louder. Similarly, if you took a left turn, and the weight shifted off of the left side, the noise would go away.

Try jacking up the car and grabbing the wheel at the top and bottom and shaking it hard. If you get any play or looseness in the wheel, chances are the bearing is bad.
