Hi,

Im hoping someone can help with mechanical knowledge.

I have a Nissan Almera Tino (not exciting I know) and it has developed a rattle when I pull away in first gear. It runs fine, I cant hear the exhaust blowing and there does not appear to be any leaks.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks

Does it sound like an engine rattle or an exhaust rattle.

All sorted!

I jacked the car and and removed the wheel and found a facia plate on the flexible part of the exhaust that had rusted and fallen away and was sliding up and down the exhaust causing the rattling.

I took a pair of plyers and a hacksaw to it and took it away. Now no more rattle!

Happy Days!
