Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Rover 4 Series V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 98000 miles

The car has to be started 3 times before it will start.
The sound is good when you try to start it, it fires but does not catch.

There is a rattle sound that has become worse over the last 2 days. It rattles while you drive as if it is coming from under the car.

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

We do not have any information on your car in our data base, so I will out line the basics as this is where you should be starting anyway, first thing is to go get a scan and check for any unresolved fault codes, not all fault codes will set the engine check light, get a full tune done, and have the fuel rail pressure check, also fuel pressure retention. As for the noise I would be looking at cracked exhaust heat shields, broken exhaust mounts and loose exhaust muffler baffles, start here.
