Question about 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

Rattle in 2005 Sunfire

I don't know exact location. What is bothering me is the same thing happened in a 1997 Sunfire I had and I had to have some kind of mounts replaced and it was very costly. I am trying to figure out what they were called and I can't remember! I'm thinking it was something to do with the control arms, but the internet says that's the rear of the car. I know it has something to do with the suspension, or the tie rods, or something, and that Sunfires are notorious for this happening.

    Have a similar problem, rattles from the right side front end but only makes the rattling noise when turning right. Sounded like the hood support was loose. No visible problems, bouncing the car up and down does not produce the noise, turning wheel when stopped no noise. Nothing through the steering, no uneven wear on tire. I'm at a loss.

Have you tried jacking it up and pushing and pulling on the wheels to try to get a noise theres probably more going on but it could be something simple as just a loose nut or bolt. u can check your mounts by applying the hand brake and in gear give it a little gas have some one check to see if they are having to much movement

How much compression should be in cyclinders on a 1997 sunfire gt

The actual compression # you see is not as important as that they are all within 10-20% of each other. (I like seeing from 5-10% but that's not always the case) Generally you will see from 90-120psi.but the readings all should be similar. If one cylinder is way lower than the rest, (as in, one at 60, the remainder at 100) you have a problem. If two adjacent cylinders read low, having nearly the same reading, chances are you have a blown head gasket between them. If you find coolant on any plugs when you remove them, don't bother with a comp test, the head needs to be removed. When doing any head work, always have the head dye tested for cracks and checked for flatness. Never tear an engine down hot or things will warp. (head, manifolds etc).

Hi. I think I may need a new battery for my 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. What size battery does it take? I've been checking online, but I need to know the "group size."

Your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire battery group number is 75.

Check the Part Numbers of these batteries for your car - they all begin with "75."

Three batteries that fit your car are found at:

The "Group Number" refers to the dimensions of the battery - at battery that's too big wouldn't fit into
the battery compartment of the car.

What could be the clicking sound coming from the engine - continues clicking as I drive. it's a 2005 pontiac sunfire

If it just does it when cold it's piston slap. GM made the skirts shorter to save weight and metal so until they warm up and expand in the walls your piston sill "rattle around" in the sleeve of the block making a "ticking" sound. This is normal but annoying.
If it continues when warm it could be a number of things too numerous to mention.
Try adding Lucas to your engine oil on the next service and see if it goes away.
Switching to a higher grade fuel may also solve your issue. Both cheap fixes.

I'm not sure, a good place to look for your exact car would be in a service manual. The best one would be straight from Pontiac, but Haynes or Chilton's should also show you exactly where it is.
