When I start my car There is a loud rattling noise This continues while driving.When i press clutch peddle down the noise goes away. Any ideas?
just noticed this, mainly when im sitting in a drive thru because the rattling echoes off of the building. Sometimes when I put my clutch in it goes away, but other times it just rattles and is quite embarrassing because I keep my car in excellent condition. wondering what the heck is going on though and if I need to be concerned or its just a quick fix.
drivetrain rattles at idle when the clutch is not depressed. When the clutch is depressed, the rattling goes away.
