check this out guys, ever since i put that y8 im on, my car has made this rattling sound sometimes when i accerate, decelerate. or when i rev, does anyone know what that sound is?? i thought it might have something to do with the trans, but it does it in neutral too. i also have a small vacume leak from a shitty im gasket, i'm waiting on one to come from stateside. i guess my question is, is that sound coming from that leak, or what is happening with my engine? anyone???

turn your car on, get under your hood and rev up your car and see if you can find the rattling. it could be anything from a loose bolt, to the IM hitting something, to a washer sitting on the IM.

alright, same shit. it's getting on my fuckin nerves now, it only happens at 3000rpms, accelerating or decelerating. it's nothing loose, and it's really weird b/c i was doing work on my car, listening to the radio and my battery died, so i jumped it and the noise stopped. the next day i was just fuckin around and i gunned it and the noise started again. anybody know wtf is going on?


:edit: and it's coming from the drivers side of the engine compartment
