Where is the noise from exactly? It sounds like clutch basket rattle, often happens when idling, worse when cold, not so bad as engine warms up. If it's from the top end it's probably tappets. Change the oil if you haven't recently done so and see if that helps. clutch basket is no problem unless it gets REALLY noisy and gearchanges are difficult, then change clutch plates and clean up basket. Tappets or shims will need to be done at next service so performance will be maintained, if it's top end.

Jeep 360 rattle sound at idle in park


it could be a wrist pin, and im not sure if those amc's had hydraulic lifters but sometimes with old lifters when the oil pressure is lower at an idle the lifters arnt filling up all the way so they develope a little valve lash, and when the rpms are raised the oil pressure raises and fills the lifters. you could try chasing the noise down with an automotive stethoscope.

My Nissan Maxima makes a whistling noise when I accelerate. It is quiet when idling. It runs fine. What is making that noise?


Spray WD40 on all pulley bearings if noise persists then inspect all vacuum hoses for leaks. If there is a leak it will actually be easier to find at idle then when the engine is high speed. Use a tube of newspaper as sound pipe to help listen to different areas of the engine to help isolate where sound is coming from. Looks a little crazy but it works.

Load humming noise comes through air filter


too little information to go by..humming noise..what year/model/engine etc....

however i assume it s a ford and it is most likely caused by a sticky idle air control valve...they tend to hum and "hoot" when sticking, this may be associated with stalling at idle and/or hard starts unless aplying gas pedal. you can identify the idle air control valve as it is attached to most of the engnies by 2 botls and has about a 3-4" silver tube extending abaw from bolts, it is on top of the engine. when these make noise and backfeed through the air box a vibration can be felt from it. there will be a wire goinf to the valve, unplug it whil engine is running and when you hear the humming..if noise gone once it is unplugged...replce it WITH A FACTORY PART!!!

hope this helps

Hi and welcome to Fixya!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you take it in to any reputable mechanic and perform a valve clearance check. The clearance may be too far that's why it creates a noise. If that's the case then have a valve clearance adjustment.

You may want to replace the MAF (mass air flow) sensor too. If the MAF is faulty an erratic idle may occur and engine may stall. The MAF is located on the throttle body.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Noise from engine


Check your belt. Belts will whine when they're worn, cracked or glazed. I hope this was helpful. It's not normal. Take care and God bless.

Engine whine noise


most likely a belt tensioner or pulley take some penetrating oil and spray the center of each pulley one at a time if the noise stops you got your bad pulley if not take the belts off the motor and spin everything by hand to feel or hear any grinding noises if you still don't feel anything run the motor (not for more then a minute) with the belts off and if the noise is still apparent your timing belt needs to be checked right away! it may be on its way out and if that goes your motor is toast good luck and please rate -jeff

I assume you mean low idle speed 500 rpm. Genarally a tapping noise comes from the valve train, and a knocking noise comes from the crankshaft connecting rods. The way that a mechanic will narrow it down is to use a mechanics stethoscope. You can get one pretty cheaply at an auto parts store. Put the metal end of the scope on a part of the engine and listen for noise. On the other hand, if your car is idling at 5000 rpm, it would also be making ALOT of noise.
