'Rattle' at 2000 - 2500 rpm.

Postby wsnownz » Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:10 am

As per title, car makes a sort of 'rattle' or groan, sounds like from the rear end but unsure.
Always at 2000 rpm to 2500rpm in all gears and in neutral. Accelerating and Decelerating.
Have it booked in for a service next week so they will check it for me.
Would be good to sort it myself if anyone has any ideas?
Car is a '99 6sp RS200. Cheers

1. May be something loose in Your exhaust manifold (if it's aftermarket I did heard some cases) or again something loose in Your back box
2. Use search button
D700 / RS200

Where abouts you live? Maybe another member could have a listen or you could put a video up

Make sure they place that services it uses a quality 5W30 or 10W30 engine oil too

Check your exhaust and have it tightened, it's probably loose somewhere.

Got the same problem, mine's somewhere in the middle. Gotta go fix it soon, it also rattles durin' gear shifts.

Good luck, mate.
