Rattling noise HELP

Postby Finny19 » Wed May 31, 2017 7:34 pm

So my car started making a weird noise today and i can't work out what it is.
When accelerating, there's a really awful metallic rattle that seems to happen around 1500 and 2500 rpm.
It also is constant if i change down a gear and let the car slow down by engine braking.

It sounds horrible and loud enough that pedestrians are starring at my car.
Any ideas what it could be???

That anti-seize stuff on the sensor must have worked! :)
