    started to remove the trans to search for the problem. got the starter and cover off and started to take the torque converter bolts off when I found them to be at least 1 full turn loose,all of them. thanks for pointing me in that direction.

I had the same problem with a 2000 Cherokee. It turned out to be a couple of bolts that had come loose from my flywheel and were picked up periodically by the flywheel. You need to have this checked ASAP.

Ford f250 1989 diesel c6 transmission Loud unregular noise, not driving, running idle, shift and drive normal. Sounds like parts loose in gearbox.


See if it the torque converter making the noise. Ford had these converters take would make like a rattle/clicking noise. Not sure if they went back that far though. The noise doesn't hurt anything. Every thing still works fine. It was just annoying.

SOUNDS OF A BAD TORQUE CONVERTER


Typically, a failed or failing torque converter won't make any particular noise, it'll just seem to slip badly. It MAY make a loud, high-pitched rattling sound, though, depending upon what's failing about it.

Jeep 360 rattle sound at idle in park


it could be a wrist pin, and im not sure if those amc's had hydraulic lifters but sometimes with old lifters when the oil pressure is lower at an idle the lifters arnt filling up all the way so they develope a little valve lash, and when the rpms are raised the oil pressure raises and fills the lifters. you could try chasing the noise down with an automotive stethoscope.

It could be the catalytic converter. While vehicle is off and parking brake on, go under the vehicle while it is cool and tap on the exhaust. See if the noise doesnt sound the same as you tap where the exhaust goes into the bigger section by the transmission.

Relaced transmission and now have a rattle sound comind from torque coverter area,noise gets louder when gas pedal is applied and noise goes away during shifting of transmission btu comes right back after...


your torque converter is rattling that is the clutch on the stator inside is worn out... You can stall test your torque converter ...Do this but follow correctly. put on parking brake..on the asphalt,,,, block all four wheels...push the gas to the floor for just 2 seconds...down one, two lift off gas pedal quickly..
when your doing this WATCH your RPMs they should reach to around 2200-2400 between the 2-4 rpm if not the Torque Converter is toast!!!! If your car passes the STAll test then when you tranny was put back on one of the fly wheel covers are rubbing....!!!.

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where


The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

98 Ford Explorer engine/exhaust noise


When catalytic converters go bad, the porcelain matrix inside comes loose and is noisy.
But you can just unbolt it, break up the loose chunks, pour out the pieces, and it will run better than ever.
If you don't pass the next emissions test, then replace it.

But it could just be the heat shield rattling instead.
Take the shield off first, to see if it goes away.

Engine Rattling


Try checking the heat shield on your exhaust system. You should have one over the manifold and one over your cat converter under the car.
