What can it be ?


Valves are rattling because of overheating. Check for coolant leaks and make sure fans are coming on

Ok what would i need to change or ???


Have you had your vehicle looked to see what's the issue

No I have not but everything is fine but it has a 3.1 in it


It seems to me that if a car is overheating than it's not fine ,,, if you continue to drive it the noise will eventually disappear.


Tom is right and if you don't understand what he is saying I will put it in plain English - keep driving it the way it is and your engine will be Toast!


take it to a shop u trust for evaluation. if u wanna check it yourself, look at your coolant for any contaminants(anything not orange) in your radiator and see if it is all the way full to the cap. add more same color coolant if needed.. check the oil to see if it is on the operating level at the dipstick labeled 'oil' and also look for anything that does not look like oil. comment here what it looks like & photos if u can for feed back.
