I have a 12.5 hp Briggs and stratton lawn mower engine that will not start. It has fresh gas and a new spark plug. every time i try to crank it it makes a rattling noise

The rattling noise may or may not be related to the motor not starting, but I'd definitely figure out what's causing the noise first. Could be anything from busted ratchet pieces in the recoil mechanism to a piece of debris dragging across the flywheel fan blades to a loose coil to a busted connecting rod down to a broken governor, bad main bearing or loose blade. Since I can't hear the noise, I'd recommend first checking the one of those things that would definitely make a rattling noise and would definitely keep the motor from starting: Remove the spark plug and shine a penlight into the cylinder, noting the position of the piston. Pull the starter rope just enough to make the engine turn over partway. Repeat a few times. If the piston doesn't move, busted rod. That'd be both the source of the noise and why it won't start. If the piston does move, I'd work by process of elimination until I found and addressed the source of the noise. That done, make sure you have a good spark when you crank it. That done, the problem is almost certainly a dirty carb. If your carb has what appears to be a 1/2" nut holding the bowl on, either shut off the fuel valve (if your motor has one) or clamp the fuel line to the carb and remove the 1/2" nut from the bottom of the carb bowl. The "nut" is actually the main jet. Clean it and the bowl with carb cleaner, making sure the tiny holes in the nut/jet are squeaky clean. Reassemble, remove the clamp and try again. If still no go (or it's the older-style carb with screws holding the bowl on) you'll have to pull the carb and do a complete disassembly and cleaning. Dang this was a long-winded answer but I didn't have much to go on. Hope it helps.

Sounds like a bad rod bearing, no cure except a rebuild. I assume you do know the difference between spark knock and bearing knock.

What is the rattling noise i hear when i accelarate in my cadillac deville. 1995

Check your oil. If oil is too low, it makes a rattling noise in acceleration. Also, be careful that it isn't your timing chain. The timing chain, once it's starting to fail, will make that noise as well.

Switch on compressor clicks on loudly and compressor makes a rattling noise when it runs.

if your sure it is the compressor relay that is making the noise then i would suggest replacing it fast... it may be getting weak and will leave the milk spoiling soon... another possibility is that the compressor it self is starting to get harder to crank and or the compressor itself is getting ready to go may be hearing a rattle because sometimes it is not starting and the rattle is the compressor vibrating because of a weak start relay... hopeful thats the case if it constantly is rattling then i would say the compressor valves are starting to fail adn won't be long before you are shopping for a new unit or a appliance repair man ...good luck to you...lets hope you caught it early enough ....

I have a 2001 Ford ranger supercab that makes rattling noises. It has a 4.0L SOHC. It makes a very fast and loud metallic rattle wich softens anfter about a second or so when I first start it for the day....

4.0l's are notorious for valve rattle on cold start-up. There is really nothing you can do to make it go away short of completely replacing the valve train in the top end, and that isn't a permanent fix. It's is an top end oiling issue from the factory. Just don't race your engine on cold start-up until the rattle stops.

The rattle in the transmission sounds to me to be more of a loose dust shield/heat shield around the transmission or exhaust than a mechanical issue.

This may be due to old oil. I'd first try changing the oil. The viscosity of old oil may be to thin causing serious run off in the top end. All of the lubrication may be off of the valve assembly causing it to chatter and make these noises until the motor can re-lubricate the valve train.

Also, it may be due to low oil, to heavy of a wieght of oil (such as 15w40 or 20x50). I believe with most of the 04's the recommended oil weight is 5w30.

Try an oil change and see if the noise goes away. If it doesn't I'd do a quick visual inspection under the hood for rattling parts while the engine is running. It could just be a loose housing or something causing the noise. Hope this helps bud!
