Question Rattling Noise

I dont know if you all had this problem before but sometimes when i am driving with my A/C on i hear a small rattling sound every time i push the gas pedal down. I hear it coming from the engine bay area. it loud enough for me 2 hear. This happened a while ago and i ignored it but now it keep happening and is really annoying. It especially happens when it in hot weather.

n-e-advice 2 fix or you guyz still dunno what im talkin about.

most likely.......

it could be coming from your tensioner or idler pulleys, they tend to make noise, especially in warmer weather, and when you have the a/c on, it poses a load to the pulley, i have the same thing too, just too busy to do it, heck i even need to change tranny oil and drivebelts........

i don't know but i can say i get a creaking noise in my right rear suspenson. like you it mostly happens in hot weather. and the hotter it is the more noise it makes its just a snap-creak that happens everytime the suspension moves. but the catch is that the shock doesn't seem to be blown, the car doesn't jump up and down. it just makes that annoying noise. doesn't happen in temps below 80.

so do we need to tighten the tensioner or how about do we fix it?

I got that too. when I punch it, I can hear some rattling coming from the intake (I guess). It sounds like a nasty grinding/rattling noise. I have my timing up, it couldn't be pinging, could it? It doesn't sound like pinging.

yo ScarCrow28

yo ScarCrow28 I know what the problem is because I had the problem myself, the rattling your hearing in your suspension is the spring moving around in the shock and not staying in the perch up top. Check it I was getting that same noisz from just the rears.....I had Eibach Sportlines and at the time brand new Tokico shocks. If you go to PDM-Racing.com (which had an extensive Nissan history as well) they have this product from Whiteline called coil wrap. You wrap all the "dead" or middle coils even while your springs are still on no disassembly is required and whala! NO MORE NOISZ! cool huh? the package to do two springs is $10.00 and there based in canada. Of course you could just go to an auto parts store and get some rubber tubing. Oh well the point is Noisz all gone!.....hope this was helpful....

Im almost positive it could be your a/c condenser fan hitting something, check it to make sure there isnt any bends or anything.

do u have lowered suspension? a few different types of kyb agx's make noise and so do lowering springs. sometimes u cant get rid of it, sometimes u can. just turn up the radio

so i'm guessing you basically put a spring rubber in inthere. you know, like in NASCAR. cept for only ten bucks i doubt they do anything for handling. i'll difinetely check it out. i was thinking it may be comming close to time for a new shock or something its's a completely stock suspension. i don't think it has ever been changed.

now there is an idea. spring rubbers!?!?

that rattling noise could be the heat shields. all but the heat shield on my header has already rusted, rattled, and fallen off. when the ac is turned on the engine revs a bit higher for more power, annother belt starts turning and causes more vibration makeing the shield rattle against the exhaust. it goes away as you press on the gas and the engine smooths out. if you havn't replaced the exhaust system yet, they may be the problem. i noticed the hollow rattle after a one week recheck on my timing. when i hit the gas just right, or turned the ac on i got a rattle. i dont' have a tach so i don't know what rpm i was doing, but it wasn't much
