I had a similar problem with mine. As well the engine would rattle just after stepping on the gas only. I suspected rocker arms. Retorquing them did help with power but did not solve the problem. After tearing things apart, and my truck dying, I discovered the cause of the problem, the connecting rod bearings. 2 bearings where spinning and one was fused to the crank. The slop in these bearings was making all the noise. Interestingly the rattle always sounded like it was coming from the back of the engine or on the passenger side of the engine, not the bottom where I would have expected it to be coming from. I hope that helps.

My 2004 Nissan altima makes a knocking sound when I start it up. When I drive it maks a rattling noise. Is this a transmission problem?

Sounds more like a lack of oil or oil circulation problem. I hope you are not one that races the engine to hear how good it sounds. Flush the engine, change the oil and filter and never race a cold engine to warm it up. The rattling may be worn out lifters. Now pray. lol

How do to tell if the crank shaft is bad on a 2 stroke dirt bike?

It could sound very bad when it runs. It will sound like a grinding or rumbling or rattling sound when it runs. If it gets very bad it will seize, that is just lock up and quit turning. Dirt bikes have tough lives, and if they get mud or dust in them the bearings in the crank and big end on the rod will start to sound bad before they lock up completely. And you can hold your ear up to the engine when it is running, if there is a ticking or knocking sound coming from the cylinder then that is just the usual wore out piston noise, if there is a rumbling or rattling sound when it runs coming from the bottom of the engine that is the crank or rod bearning.
