    hey guys,

    i currently have this weird engine rattle as you can hear in the video below when your rev the car from around 2.5k to 3.5k. Does anyone know what that sound is and what can be done as im looking to fix it asap.



    thanks :)

    Well it a noise and vid ain't helpful, sounds like coming from under front engine area, sounds like some bearing noise like a water pump bearing or other round bearing, something going round with revs and also could be something like a broken metal exhaust gasket in the exhaust as you rev it up, hopefully it ain't turbo related.

    Yip it be better if the bonnet was open and move the camera around, it called be anything you need to narrow the spot, thing I would do is remove the belt and if it goes away then its a bearing or water pump even a alternator or like was said blown exhaust gasket.
