Need help!!

Last night I got in my car to drive to work. Heard a new rattle. Coming from the engine bay. Only happens around 2-3k rpm. Stops when you let off the gas. Any ideas?

No idea, but it sounds like a vibration noise. Something is loose. Vibrations cause noise at certain frequencies which is why you only hear it at certain rpms. Valves or rods are constant and are better heard when accelerating.

Mine makes a noise like a squeaking noise not sure what rpms but I think it's the timing chain.

Actually. I have seen people at least make really educated guesses on noises when told the parameters of the noise. I live in an apartment complex where even looking like your working on your car will get you kicked out. It was 7am in the morning and no place was open. Unwad the panties and help or please remain silent.

I did this and everyone had a different answer for me.. youtube your symptoms and I bet someone else has done that, read the comments or watch the video and you will probably figure out whats wrong
