    I have the same problem on my 2007 corolla model. The rattle sound happen to me almost every morning when i trying to start my engine. It will be worst when the weather is cold. Sometimes , the engine is vibrating when you start the car. Another problem that I have on this new corrola is on my steering drive column, you can constantly hear some "lossy" kind of sound from the steering column while you are driving. I had bring my car to toyota mechanic twice for this problem, and they said they cant do anythign about it until the problem get serious or more severe. What can I do?

SOURCE: Engine knock

The idle issue is normal. The idle is controlled by the ECU. There are no adjustments for the idle. Regarding the knocking noise, that could be several things, and I am hesitant to comment without hearing it. Take it to a Toyota Dealer & have a tech listen to it. We are very good at identifying noises on the service drive.

SOURCE: my car vibrates

Research this: "NHTSA Number 10025856". Print out your findings and take it to the dealership. Speak to the Service Manager directly. Ask for 2 1/5 minutes of his time, and tell him what is going on. Tell you have researched and have found the probability, and give him a copy of your print out.

The 3.3 no longer has a "spin-on" filter. The filter is now a "cartridge-type", and is housed in a cricular aluminum housing under the engine.

SOURCE: My 2005 Corolla XRS has rattling when deaccelerating

I wouldn't say it is common. There are quite a few heat shields around the stock exhaust "header" and exhaust system. There are also FOUR motor mounts that you can check to see if all bolts are tight. They are all 14mm heads on the motor mounts, 12mm on the exhaust shields. These seem to be the main things that may get loose or make a rattling sound. The exhaust gasket is also designed to flex when the engine flexes - I would check into the exhaust. You have to remove the TRD strut bar to gain better access from above.

98 toyota corolla rattling noise in the front end on bumps


The rattle (noticed at times under hard acceleration) is the cause of gas shock on the upper part of the engine loosing charge, in-turn causing the engine mounts extra stress and thus metal vibrating/rattling together.
The knocking (over bumps, etc. if you have noted that) is caused by worn bushings, most likely worn sway bar end links (you will see the links looking at the undercarriage, on both sides, they are a little steel "bars" with threaded ends on a 90 deg angle held by bushings e.g. example of front sway bar links ).
I noticed these noises coming on (at various times) at about ~140,000km or ~67,000mi and drove the car as it was until ~300,000km when i sold it (as is). Annoying noises.... yes... did I turn up the radio and carry on driving this car, not "fixing" anything (and I mean not a single $ spent on it aside from maintenance) and then sell the car... yes. The choice is yours.

Rattling noise sportage 2008


Sorry for the late reply but, no, it is not related to a loose heat shield. It is a louder rattling sound more like a loose bearing vibrating inside either the transmission or the clutch assembly. Only between 1600 and 1900 rpm. and it is not present under ou over these rpm. The rattle desappear when I lock the 4X4. Dealer is out of solution!!

I have just purchased a 1998 malabu with a 3.1 engine. It has a rattle when cold. Any ideas? I've been told not to worry.


IAC (IDLE AIR CONTROL) should be replaced. You will be amazed at the difference when you change it.

What part is located in the front of the engine between the engine head and the radiator, it is making a rattling sound at high idle


lots of parts, alternator, water pump, a/c compressor lower area . many of them are on the serpentine belt. the pulleys and tensioner can make rattles. you need to confirm which part has the rattle or vibration, use a stick or screw driver. touch one end on the part and the other near your temple...any noise/vibration coming through?

fiind which one it is. lower noise on the crank can also sound like its coming from up front and that's a deep rattle.
