There are a lot of reasons. Engine mount is worned out or your engine is not fine tuned.

2011 Chevy Malibu lt. P0016 code. Replaced both cam sensor.and crank sensor still won't start


If you have the V6, they have a history of timing chain problems. The tensioner can go bad allowing the chain to rattle and jump time. This weill set the P0016 code since the cam and crank are not sync'ed and will result in a no-start condition.

2005 Mercury Grand Marquese accellarator not accellerating motor


Check idle speed, air flow speed, oxygen sensors . Check fuel manifold pressure. If the engine runs ok but will not rev up check the cat converter by hitting with the heel of your hand and listening for rattles as they are prone to failing and blocking up the exhaust system which stops the motor from accelerating

Mazda protege 5 2003 crank wont start


I purchased a used 2003 Mazda Protege w/170k on it. I knew it had a rod knocking at the time. It was still running. I bought a used motor 35k from Japan. I swapped everything But could never get it to run. I took it to the Mazda dealer (why not just flush cash in the toilet) They lied and said it needed a new computer.
Finally discovered that the harmonic balancer / lower pulley had Japanies spline for the crank position sensor. It ran great after I put the old pully on. In the intake the butterfly valves had come lose and fallen into the intake valves and shredded and then gotten into the crank. If you are hearing rattling remove your intake and you will find the butterfly valves have come loose.

I changed the serpentine belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 now when I start it it idles low and then kills. I changed the crankshaft position sensor and it does the same thing. I took the crank shaft postion...


Rattling is most likely the original problem. I would say you have a bad bearing in one of your pulleys. Usually the A/C compressor one causes a loud rattle when it goes out, sometime the alternator one will also. Release tension on belt and try to wobble pulleys by hand to feel for slop in pulley bearings. If you find any significant slop, the pulley baering is most likely bad. (Your tesioner pulley itself can also be the culprit) sloppy pulley= bad bearing = drag= load on engine =bad idle and or kill motor.

Tapping noise when first cranked


The Nissan motor that came as a V6 will rattle on start up if it has the wrong oil filter on it or the wrong oil or oil that needs changed badly 10-40 resists rattle better than 5-30 and works good in motors that have some miles on them. Does the oil light go out right away when the motor starts? Change the oil first with the right oil filter before you try anything else.

Ticking and rattling


Is it a 3.9? Does it sound like it is coming from the front of the engine(timing chain)? From the factory the 3.9 didn't come with a timing chain tensioner. They are available after market.
