1992 Chevrolet Silverado Repair Question
I'm trying to figure out where a rattling noise is coming from.
see if there are any loose particles inside the cat converter. hit it with a rubber mallett to see if anything is rattling around.
Thank you for the reply. That was one of the things I had checked but that wasn't it. I did some further checking and can hear it now in the engine compartment. I used a piece of hose and can only hear it on the right(passenger) side. I found a couple of slightly loose exhaust manifold bolts. I haven't checked to see if that was it yet though. I just don't understand why only when accelerating in gear and only after it warms up.
exhaust leaks go away when warm, not getting worse. does it sound like a valve tap??
To be honest, I'm not sure. I'm just kind of a shade tree mechanic. When it comes to internal engine issues, I don't have a clue. I was hoping this whole thing would be something simple, but I guess it's not going to be. You don't think it could be caused by using a different oil weight do you? It's supposed to take 5w30 but I used 10w30
Well Roy, thanks anyway for your help. I'm just tired of sinking money into this thing. Maybe I'll just sell it. Thanks again.
