Q: Car rattling.

asked by on

Car is making a loud rattling noise. The noise is really noticeable during idling and acceleration.

This engine rattling on acceleration may be a computer reprogram that would fix if the noise is what is called pinging or pre-ignition. The problem of the noise at idle and on acceleration may be another problem and I would have to recommend you have a qualified mechanic listen to the noise to make sure it is not a loss of oil pressure or internal engine problem.
