Rattle in engine area
Looking at buying a 2004 Nissan Altima but the
owner describes the car as having a loud rattle
while running under the hood...it doesn't overheat
or die tho but they stopped driving it and don't
know the cause of the noise...any suggestions as
to what would cause this rattle noise??
Just stay away and dont buy the car. ...any noise cant be good, buy something else
Thanks for the insight...I was hoping it would be a simple fix but of course not, lol
There is a reason he is selling it i bet it going to be expensive, glad you are going to pass, good move !
Most likely it is the timing chain that needs replacement. Not worth buying it.
