Rattling noise when idling


Under the car like the exhaust? Catalytic converters do that inside their metal shell or housing. Beat on it with your fist when it is cold to hear it. (Not running).

What is causing rattling grinding noise at idle especially in my 89 4.5 DeVille?


The technique I always used to identify where such a noise was coming from was to use a very long screwdriver (2 feet long), while the engine is running. CAREFULLY touch the screwdriver end to each pulley or other object under the hood, and put your ear to the handle. The device making the noise will become very clear.

It could be AC pump/clutch, alternator, water pump, power steering pump, etc.

Could be a long list of things.
A mechanic would take a test drive and listen under different conditions.
Causes could include transaxle problems, exhaust rattles, worn motor mounts, even valves in the engine.
The difference in idle and moving is a load on the engine and transaxle and the engine shifting position.

Noise when driving & idling, sounds like a loose fan/belt/rattling noise. any inputs? Thanks


Sounds like a rattling noise is a bearing going bad to me.

If disconnecting the belt gets rid of the rattling, I would check for binding or loose pulley bearings.

Take off the fan belt and give each of the items that the belt drives a spin and a wiggle to see if you can figure out what you need to do.

Rattling sound at idle speed


The rattling is a worn-out timing chain (rattling should be louder at one end of the engine). Get it changed now - they will eventually break, closely followed by your bank balance!

1994 Corolla rattles when idling and at low speeds.


It amazes me that they didn't at least address the rattling noise, seeing how they probably caused it. If it is just a belt, that's an easy fix. Did you stop at another shop & ask for a quick diagnosis?
Could be something as simple as a heat shield , or something. Doesn't hurt to have a second opinion, and shouldn't cost anything, or very little, then go back & tell them what the diagnosis was.
