Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

It sounds like there is a chain in my engine shaking it is not knocking just rattling like something is loose. I know nothing about engines but there are some gears with a belt around them and they seem to shake a little while the engine is running I think that is where the noise is coming from.

Have a 2006 titan; noticed excess condensation and some white smoke after it was warm; also went I accelerate it sounds like a "metal rattle"(?) doesn't make that sound when at an idle...any suggestions?...


The condensation and white smoke could just be excess moisture that can build up in the muffler when the vehicles isn't used for a while or has been doing only short runs (less than 25-30 miles).. Keep an eye on the coolant level, and if it stays good then there isn't much to worry form that. As far as the "metal rattle" on acceleration, this could be what is known as "octane ping". It means that the engine is knocking a bit from fuel that isn't giving it enough octane. Cheap gas and occasional blending errors can cause this. Try running a tankful of mid-grade fuel next time. IF the noise goes away, you've found the culprit. Octane ping doesn't really hurt the engine, but it is annoying. You may be able to still use regular grade fuel, but might have to change the brand to find one that the truck likes better.

Rattle under engine while driving


Could be possibly be a loose heat shield. Also check alternator pulley/decoupler.

1995 Olds Silhouette rattled badly, died while running


I think you had better have a local shop inspect this for a failed engine connecting rod.

I have a rattle type knocking in the engine when the engine starts or hits a certain rpm around 2500


it may just be something vibrating-inspect for loose bolts or components-----internal problems could be many things from bearings--valves--cams--timing chains......to tranny or engine mount----a stethascope can be used to pinpoint-----------try to get an olschool mech to hear-----also salvage yards are experienced

What would cause 99 alero 4 cyl. to make a rattleing sound when idle.. but not when its running at a high rpm.. sounds like its coming from the passenger side of the motor, sounds like something is...


noises are tough, but try getting under the car when the engine is cold and it has been sitting for a while and hit (with your fist) the catalytic converter-the substrate in cats break up and cause rattles that are especially noticable when the vehicle is running at low speeds.

2004 explorer died while driving then won't start and sounds horrible shaking in engine. All lights and electric working. Little wrench light came on.


I dont know what the horibile shaking you are describing they seem to ussually just loose a fuel pump or a ignition module. If its a knock or grind it wont help you. if its metalic its a rod or timing chain. a rod or piston knocks and or rattles around timing chain grinds and or motor spins faster than ussual. Good Luck

Rattling sound from the exhaust


The metal shielding around your catalytic converter could be rattling or the rubber donut that holds the rear tailpipe could be bad. When your car is cold shake your tailpipe and see if you can reproduce the noise. If you can your tailpipe donut is likely bad. Three dollars at any auto parts store. If it does rattle when you shake your tailpipe then the heat shield for your convert could be loose. You need to tighten it up another piece of metal between it and the converter to keep it from rattling. If you hear the rattle when you go over bumps too then your exhuast is probably, loose. Crawl under there and stake shaking things, I am sure you'll find the problem
