I have a 99 Honda Passport V6. It has a loud rattling type noise coming from the front of the engine. No loss of power, no over heating, no stearing problems, ac works fine, but the rattling is there from start up regardless if it's cold, warm, idle, or at 2000 rpm, it still has the same loud noise.
I have been told it is the timing belt and I am in the process of getting that replaced. I do not think it's the timing belt but I need to have it replaced anyway, but the noise seems to be coming more from the front and center of the engine.
