Re: rattle

1)motor is on its way out
2)tappets rockers
3)timing chain

besides that all you can do is get a mechanic to give you a free qoute and see how costly it'll be.

i fixed all my problems and after 1500 bucks my motor is leak and rattle free,except in the morning it ticks for a split second then gets back to normal..

cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!

Re: rattle

Speaking of oil, I'd be sure to get a thicker kind next time. I've just learned this the fun way. :/
