98 Corolla Rattling

Hello there,

My 98 Corolla engine has been rattling (heavily). It happens when I turn the ignition on and while I drive. It seems to rattle less when I turn the wheel (sometimes).

Do you know what's causing the rattling noise?

Thanks.

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.

My toyota corolla nze 2002 has a rattling sound in the gear box


SInce any noise from within the engine/gear box cannot be taken lightly, it is important that you will need a good look from a service shop. If you have been carrying out the scheduled service in accordance with Toyota timings, there will not be an issue. You could check out if the noise is external,otherwise get you car to the authorised Toyota centre for an estimate. This will be better than trying out/ stipping and then waiting for spares. I hope my advise is helpful. good day

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.

A rattling noise from the engine bay


Check the heat shields on the exhaust system. They get loose from the extreme heat fluctuations work loose and rattle. Especially the one between the engine and firewall where the 02 sensor screws in. It probably rattles less after warm up because heat causes expansion which makes it tighter. Hope this helps.

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.
