Question about 2001 Yamaha YZ 426 F

2 Answers

A rattling noise coming from the engine.

The noise is between a rattle and a spining noise.It does not rattle when it is idleing but it does when the choke is on or if you hold the throttle open a little bit. I thought maybe it was the timing chain tensioner but I replaced that and its not the problem. The valve clearance is good, and i put new rings in it.

    This sure sounds like a cam chain. Do you know the proper procedure for adjusting the cam chain? Look it up because it is kind of strange.

Could be your Flywheel,The yz426 has a riveted flywheel,over time these rivets wear from the flywheel spinning around,causing a "rattling sound"or it may be your timing chain is loose or has been stretched.

Loud rattle sound when Idling


I suggest you have your car checked as soon as possible - while a rattling exhaust isn't desperately urgent it could be the cat breaking up which might later restrict the flow of gases. Most importantly excessively loose timing belts or chains tend to make most noise when the engine is idling. If the noise is being caused by this delay could be very expensive.

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.

I have just purchased a 1998 malabu with a 3.1 engine. It has a rattle when cold. Any ideas? I've been told not to worry.


IAC (IDLE AIR CONTROL) should be replaced. You will be amazed at the difference when you change it.

What part is located in the front of the engine between the engine head and the radiator, it is making a rattling sound at high idle


lots of parts, alternator, water pump, a/c compressor lower area . many of them are on the serpentine belt. the pulleys and tensioner can make rattles. you need to confirm which part has the rattle or vibration, use a stick or screw driver. touch one end on the part and the other near your temple...any noise/vibration coming through?

fiind which one it is. lower noise on the crank can also sound like its coming from up front and that's a deep rattle.

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.

Honda cbx 6 clutch rattle at idle and low rev hirendouse


Glazed alternator clutch plates? Kind of a ratcheting sound? Common when oil wasn't changed or sitting unused too long.
1. Easy fix - drain oil, remove filter. Add diesel fuel to crankcase. Turn engine over. let sit and drain. Refill with new nonsynthetic oil and replace filter. Warm up. Drain, remove filter. Refill with fresh nonsynthetic oil, and install new filter.
2. Harder, but better. Remove plates and clean or replace them.

Rattling Coming from Engine At low RPM (stopped) and when accl.


If this sounds like a tin can rattle it is likely a loose heat shield on top of the catalytic converter. They come loose after time and corrosion take their toll.
