After sitting for a week or so during extremely cold weather, my 1995 Nissan Altima was hard to start. When I did get it started, it was making a loud rattling sound. The noise doesn't go away, but i


rattling sounds like a busted rocker and the valves are loose. when it doesn't start on the first try or so, that sounds like a head gasket. they tend to start better when its hot because it swells some and improves compression. I had a dodge do that but it will only get worse if that's what it is. If you don't get it fixed now you'll eventually warp the heads and be looking at a head job or worse a new car cause its terribly expensive to fix the longer it goes

DLE2050 making strange spinning noise


I guess I wasnt clear enough. The dryer works ok, except for the rattling sound now. It will start when i push the start button, it heats, and dries the clothes. Just noisy where before the flow sensor went off, it was pretty quiet.

My Audi A4 2009 makes a rattling noise on cold starts which resolves in less than 30 seconds. Dealer says its an air pump. This doesn't seem correct. The noise comes from the front of the care. Does not...


READ THIS (happy ending so far...):
audi a4 2L turbo quattro, manual transmission with 98,000 KM. Perfect conditions, no oil leaks whatsoever.

Left the car off for two weeks in very cold weather (-10C down to -25C). When I restarted, it started immediately but with heavy rattling noise due to camshaft adjuster not getting enough oil pressure. After 3 minutes of warming up (outside temp.: -12C) at very low rpm (below 2,000rpm), I start moving the car. Still hearing heavy rattle noise. As soon as I pass 2,000 rpm, I get a scary red warning, low oil pressure. Turn off the engine immediately. In 1 minute, I re-start the car and the engine lights check ok, so I drive in first gear super slow (1,200rpm) hearing the same rattling noise. After another minute, finally the noise all the sudden disappears and the car starts running just fine.

Called Audi dealer and they told me that in extreme weather conditions, I should warm the engine for 10-15 minutes if necessary before start moving.
Take away: luckily, I didn't screw up the engine since I was using it at extremely low rpm (easy to do with clutch and manual transmission) until the oil reached full pressure. I am pretty sure now that the problem was leaving the car off for such a long time in freezing weather. All the oil flows back to the bottom, and when I restarted it, the cold oil with high viscosity took a long time to reach all the parts of the engine, specially the camshaft adjusters that are actuated by using oil pressure. Next day, the car started at -9C perfectly without making any noise (as usual). Basically, the longer you leave your audi in cold weather, the longer you might hear the rattling noise until the oil reach full pressure inside the engine. My car took 6 minutes to fix it after couple of weeks in cold weather. This makes sense to me; in fact, in the past I only heard the rattling noise after leaving the car off for a couple of days in the winter.
So far, this has had an happy ending....

Our refrigerator/freezer was making a clicking noise this morning and then the temperature started getting warmer. Now it's not cooling at all. It's only (4) yrs old.


pull the unit out
unplug it
take off the back panal
on the compressor it self
you will see the wires connected to the relay and overload
if you pull them off the compressor give em a shake
if you hear a rattle thats your problem
ohhh it does not need to rattle , but you can ohm it out to check but those are your problems

Our Beko Fridge Freezer has started to make a rattling noise. When it is turned off it stops and starts again once turned on again. Any thing we can do to fix it?


When it is off, gently shake the frig to see if the rattle is something in the frig hitting togrther. If that is not it it could be the compressor hitting the case inside due to a broken spring on the motor. The only repair for this is replace the compressor. In which case you let it run like that till it quits completely. That can be a very long time. Eric
