Sounds like the starter is stuck or not engaging or the solenoid is faulty,, first look for a bad earth from the engine to the battery or loss or dirty battery leads

Car was running fine. when I parked it it made a rat tat tat noise. thought it was oil. added oil and ran smoother but still making noise. coming from pulley area. We checked the pullies and they seemed to...

sounds like could be alternator bearings, and is cheaper to replace unit than try to repair, to try to check with the engine running ,place the tip of a LONG screw driver carefully on the alternater as near to the belt as you safely can and place the handle to your ear , this works like a stethascope and you will here metal grinding sound if bearings are wearing , you will know if the sound is right by comparing with another vehicle keep me posted if you wish , PLEASE BE VERY CARE FULL , DO NOT LET THE SCREWDRIVER SLIP INTO THE DRIVE BELT

Noise in the dash behind the radio,rat tat tat tat

That is the "Air Temperature Actuator".... About a $30 item at the junk yard. LOTS of Chevy models use this unit. So, do not pay more for the 'special' unit.. There is not a 'special order' unit... Now, getting to it is another problem.... Be nice, and if you cannot find a screw holding trim in place, it pulls off.... Be gentle..... Good luck...

When i turn the key it sounds like rat a tat tat but does not start.

Hi I am Vortash the Rat a tat tat sound is probably the solenoid on the starter trying to kick in ,, now either the battery is dead or not enough power to turn it over the starter has jammed ( if your pick up is a manual gearbox try rocking the car in gear to free it ) or if an automatic a socket spanner on the crankshaft nut , car in neutral and turn it by hand see if you can hear the starter motor turning also or if the engine is jammed ... )
Bad Battery will also cause this as will poor charging from alternator and the battery runs low of juice .
A more drastic and serious reason this can happen is a cambelt failure piston is on the valves so engine will not turn making the solenoid cut in and out as it trys to turn the engine . hope for your sake it isn't that ?. finally if all that fails remove starter refurbish clean and or replace ..,. regards Vortash

Won't start

What rat tat tat? If you mean the clicking sound, that means that the battery connection is probably corroded or the cable is bad. Clean it up with a tool. Any auto parts store ... about $3. If it is a whine, the starter is bad. If there is a solid click and no turnover, it might be the solenoid relay...but I doubt it. How to get an idea: turn on the headlights and hit the key...if the lights dim significantly, your battery might be bad. If not, check for corrosion or that solenoid. Find out why that light is on!
