Rattling under the hood can be something easy to fix to something bad. It could be loose bolts, bearings, pulleys, or it could be interior in the motor.
There are a few things that might cause an air conditioner to make a rattling noise. It could be that the there is dirt and debris in the cabinet. If this is the case, cleaning the cabinet should stop the rattling. The reason could also be loose panels on the cabinets. The fan could also be bent and no longer straight.
Most likeyl cause could be a bad pulley
if its a front wheel drive vehicle then it could be the axels
If it's coming from the rear, I would check either your catalytic converter or your muffler. Either could have pieces loose in them that would cause a rattling sound when you either push or release the throttle.
my son bought a 1996 cougar that felt like the transmition was slipping and we had the transmission flushed and it fixed it.
Ha, lots of noise :]
What could cause a rattling at t he drivers side back tire..
the battery could have a dead cell, this could cause it to not charge. Have the battery tested to be sure.
Many different things can cause a rattling noise in a Mazda tribute. Stark by checking the engine belts and all brackets for anything that could be loose and causing a rattle.
It could be a belt slipping... the bearings in your ac compressor going out... low fluid level in your power steering reservoir
it could be a bad lock up torque converter(if equiped with it). vehicle dies when coming to a stop.
Have the alternator checked.
check the recalls for the 99 mercury cougar!! it includes a recall on the throttle cable...
It could be a loose radiator grill, license plate holder or similar. It could be a loose cap in the engine compartment or even a problem with the engine.
The rattling of heavy-duty industrial machinery could be heard, from a great distance.
It could just be the heat shield on the under side of the catalytic converter.
Could be a worn out shock or wheel bearings. Is it 4 wheel drive?
without looking at/hearing/feeling anything i would first guess at bad struts. these can cause the extreme wear(as can a few other normal less expensive things like camber/toe settings) but would also be the cause of some rattling. again, rattling could be coming from many other things but im venturing to guess you have bad struts. unless the rattling happens only when turning. then you probably have bad cv joints etc. and the tire wear could simply be a bad alignment or lack there of rather. try getting an alignment and ask them to check your steering components/system . . .most places can inspect this for free with an alignment. my best advice, if you are a DIY'er, fix the cheaper things first and build your way up . . . hopefully the problem is resolved before you have to spend big bucks. good luck
There are many different places in which a cougar could take shelter. A cougar could take shelter in a cave for example.
Many exhaust systems have a hanger located near or on the transmission, climb under there and sheke some things to see if you can replicate the noise, it could even be the heat shield for the catalytic converter coming loose.
If a wolverine could scare away a bear it could scare off the cougar and avoid a fight.
You could be very low on oil, check your oil and add to the full line.
we could be by a cougar or tiger
