2009 rav4 engine rattle

Asked by Mar 03, 2017 at 10:45 PM about the 2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport V6 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2009 rav4 with about 88000 miles recently started making a rattling noise from the engine area.  Rattles when idling and when driving, accelerating, etc.  Sound reminds me of sound of an idling diesel engine on a heavy duty pickup.  Oil level is reading OK and was changed out about 2 months ago.  Any ideas on possible causes?

follow-up: took to dealership, rattling noise was from water pump. Had to be replaced.
