Weird noises

I hear a clattering coming from under my car at about 1200 rpms till 2000. It sometimes comes back when at idle. Also it may get louder when i turn on the A/C. I have no idea what it could be.

Re: Weird noises

Yeah I checked all the exhaust hangers and everthing close by cause thats what i thought at first, but everything's secure. Then I noticed the it happening louder when I turned on the A/C, I'd like to get this figured out. I was thinking It was something maybe loose or out of balance in the engine bay.

I would get underneath see if anything is loose... Exhaust, from headers back. Check motor mounts. 1200Rpm kinda at lower rpms. I idle at 900. So very possible you have something come loose and rattling at lower rpms...... Just a suggestion

Re: Weird noises

I checked every square inch from the headers back, I thought harmonic balancer but would that go away after 2000rpm's? I figured that would mess with my car way worse.
