There seems to be a rattle type noice in the passenger front part of the engine. i have 2010 dodge journey could it be belts? It increases in sound at higher speeds.

Unlikely that it's the belt, but there's cheap "rattles" and expensive ones and unless you can hear this noise when it's idling or have a mechanic ride with you, it's really hard to give you a answer. The Dodge Journey's are prone to many problems but rattles don't seem to be one of them, except for the muffler heat shield. Have that checked and keep your fingers crossed as that would be a cheap repair.

Starnge noice from engine when the A/C or frost defroster is turned on.

Yeah that makes sense. When A\C Compressors get old they rattle, pop, and whine. A simple refrigerant change could be needed. Have it service by a repair shop and all should be well. Also while its there have them check the A\C clutch.

When i try to acclerate the car wont speed up...when i stop to long and try to go again the car stalls and then grinds...there is a continuous rattling noice also

I would first have the fuel pressure checked you may have a clogged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump. as far as the rattling that could be anything hopefully its not the engine rattling make sure you have oil in the engine and maybe the rattling is a loose heat sheild, good day.

Rattle noice engine around the calelitic converter. rattle noice when starting car up when cold. poor gas mileage.

Sounds like you may have a exhaust loose or either the cat converter is stopping up. Some of these have baffles inside which will break loose and cause a rattling noise. When the engine is cold, start the vehicle and crawl under and hold the converter with your hand and even the exhaust to see if any pressure will stop the or alter the noise. Careful it don't take long for the exhaust to heat up. If these baffles are broke inside, it can cause the converter to become stopped up and rattle, this will also give an engine false info when it comes to the fuel and air ratio mixture. Not going to far into it, so i don't confuse you. Good Luck

2005 dodge dakota 4.7 4x4, service engine light is on steady, there's a miss when ideling or driving slow, when I accelerate the light blinks and the miss seems to vanish. Please advise

The miss does not vanish, the noice gets cammouflagged by the noice of the engine. Check service engine light first, Auto Zone or Advance will do it for free. Then post again with your engine code.

Why does my mazda rattle when I start it up?

this is because the engine has been started from the cold condition. due to the sudden temperature rise the expansion of parts takes place which makes the rattle noice.

Rattleing noise between 2500-3500 rpms 01 protege

Have you checked the catalytic converter (also reffered to as simply a Cat by mecanics)? It's the first big canister you encounter on the exhaust line right after the manifold and before the resonator and/or muffler. After a while rust and time can cause either the casing itself to come loose and rattle, or the insides themselves break up and rattle around the cat. And being where it is it often resonates sound around the engine compartment, making it seem the sound is coming from elsewhere than it actually is. And while your at it don't forget to check the flex pipe usually connected to the cat also (some models do not have a flex pipe though). If all that is fine, then the other things to check would be the accessory brackets, wire holders and the like. With vibration and time, sometimes they loosen up and start to rattle. Still nothing? check the suspension parts for anything loose (IE. sway bar links, coils springs, tie-rod, suspension tables). Other than that there isn't much in there that can rattle. If you look at how an engine is built, you'll see that there isn't much inside that can rattle around without causing the engine to fail altogether. I'm not saying it can't happen though, but it's highly improbable. Hope this helps
