This could be caused by different things. It sounds like it may be your timing belt though. If you remove your drive belts (alternator, power steering and air conditioner belts), and then restart the vehicle, if the noise stops, then spin the pulleys you just removed the belts from, to see which one is making the noise. If the noise does not stop, then it is most likely the timing belt tensioner making all that noise and you will need to have the timing belt and associated parts, idler pulley/s, tensioner, water pump and seals replaced. Hope this helps. Have a nice day :O)

Sounds like your belt is going bad. Prop the hood and see where it is coming from. If it's coming from the belt area, then it's either a belt, or a pulley. Hope this helps. James Booth

93 chev 1500 4-4 metalic clanking at low rpm misses at low rpm only under or over that rpm stops it

It sounds as if your vibration damper has come apart.One way to check for this is to see if you can turn your alt.pulley by hand with the belt on.If you can you need a new damper.

When i accelerate there is a loud clanking sound from engine i guess

Possible the faults can be related to the following:
1. check the clutch settings- if the clutch is slipping this noise can come up. release the clutch very slowly and check if the noise reduces.
2.Possible that the drive links, the drive shaft , bearing assembly is faulty.
3. Possible there is loose linkages on the brake assembly which could get into the movement of the wheel and make noise.
4. The noise can be within the engine, possible that the belt slipping, water pump bearings, alternator bearings or idler units.
