Question about 2004 Pontiac Vibe

Open Question

2004 Pontiac Vibe Rattle above 2000 RPM. The rattle seems to come from the low center of the engine compartment as I am driving and begins once the car reaches 2000 RPM. It is not steady but seems to flutter louder and softer, even at steady speed. The speedo is ok.

SOURCE: Engine Making Noise when accelerating

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

SOURCE: my 2004 pontiac vibe check engine light just came

There are to many things that can cause the check engine light to come on. Best thing to do is to go to Auto Zone and get the Car ecm scanned for the DTC codes which would indicate the issues to why the check engine light is on. It could be as simple as a bad gas cap and needs to be replaced and if that is the case, make sure your get one from the dealer and not a generic gas cap. It could also be a bad O2 sensor and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the old O2 sensor with a new on with common tools and they do have that part for sale. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any more questions you may have.

How do I fix an engine rattle at low rpm, light load, city speeds? The spark plugs aren't due for replacement yet, should I be going after an exhaust sensor?


Depends on your definition of rattle. Engines don't rattle unless something is loose or a rock has landed in a cooling hole on the side of the catalytic converter. So , if you can give us a better description of what the engine is doing, you'll get a load of incorrect answers.

I drive a Chevy Venture 2004. in the mornings, when I start up the engine, the brake pedal goes down when I push it. Sometimes, when I am driving slow and I push the brake, it goes down, more than normal....


first check brake fluid level
if fluid is low, this is a good indication that pads or shoes need replacing
check brake lings for wear
check that pcv valve from engine to brake booster is not clogged
to check this pull it out of valve cover and shake it
if it rattles it is good
if it dont rattle it is clogged,replace it
if pads and linings are good and no obvious signs of brake fluid leaking anywhere,(wheels cylanders etc>then the brake master cylander or brake booster is bad
more likely to be booster

Rattleing noise between 2500-3500 rpms 01 protege


Have you checked the catalytic converter (also reffered to as simply a Cat by mecanics)? It's the first big canister you encounter on the exhaust line right after the manifold and before the resonator and/or muffler. After a while rust and time can cause either the casing itself to come loose and rattle, or the insides themselves break up and rattle around the cat. And being where it is it often resonates sound around the engine compartment, making it seem the sound is coming from elsewhere than it actually is. And while your at it don't forget to check the flex pipe usually connected to the cat also (some models do not have a flex pipe though). If all that is fine, then the other things to check would be the accessory brackets, wire holders and the like. With vibration and time, sometimes they loosen up and start to rattle. Still nothing? check the suspension parts for anything loose (IE. sway bar links, coils springs, tie-rod, suspension tables). Other than that there isn't much in there that can rattle. If you look at how an engine is built, you'll see that there isn't much inside that can rattle around without causing the engine to fail altogether. I'm not saying it can't happen though, but it's highly improbable. Hope this helps
