My SL1 makes a horrible rattling noise (sort of like the valves are shuddering in their seats, maybe?) When I first start it for the day. All fluids are full, and there's no history of burning oil. Lately, on top of the rattle (which, by the way, is worse if I'm on a hill or if it's cold out), it requires me to up the RPMs over 3000 for about 30 seconds, or it dies. Once it gets going, the car runs great, although the gas milage isn't what it used to be. But the rattle is making me crazy.I'm terrified I'm going to throw a rod or something.
have the same problem?
