I've noticed that when I accelerate and the rpm needle is between 2 and 3000 it makes a funny rattle noise. Any idea what that could be?

Thanx for the reply. If its due to low octane can it be solved by using a higher octane gas? Or do I have to get something done.

You could try higher octane, don't work-check the other areas that I've mentioned.
