Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1FTPW14V37_. I have a 2007 Ford F-150 with a 5. 4l v8 engine. There was intermittent rattle noise (knocking) and rough idle. After the vehicle warms up and I come to a stop or slow roll the vehicle begins to shake and a loud knocking noise is heard in the engine. This is a known issue with this engine and Ford denies it is. I had it fixed in September 2011, which was covered under warranty with 49,934 miles. The vehicle has started to do the same thing and currently has 82,000 miles on it. I was informed by both the dealer and Ford motor company they will not repair under warranty even though this was prior issue during the warrantly time. Dealer wants approximately $300. 00 to inspect to determine the extent of damage to the engine. This is safety issue as it happens during slow speeds or idle at stop lights and only way to make it stop is to shut off the vehicle or rev up the rpms. I believe the TSB was aware of this issue in 2010 but the manufacture has not notified consumers. This is a manufacturer defect and Ford motor needs to repair or replace the engine at their cost. It was 09/26/2011 when this engine rattling and whining sounds issue occurred.

I purchased my 2010 GMC Terrain in may 2013. After a few weeks of having the truck. I heard a rattling noise. I took it back to where I purchased it and they said I was out of oil. From may - oct. I have had to have 4 oil changes which my mileage was now 52,000. The service light never came on but could hear a rattling sound. They recently did a consumption test on the truck and they say everything looks fine. Now when I stop at a light or stop sign, my truck shakes as though it is going to turn off. It does this randomly. Of course they could not duplicate it when they test drove it. My light does not always illuminate and my speaker on the driver side will be static when I start up the truck. Needless to say , having the truck for only a few months and seeing this many issues is a huge concern, after reading all the complaints I am truly concerned this is not the truck that is going to last very long, even though I paid good money for it. Very disappointing. I have talked to many people who have had to have the engine replaced. Instead of going through all the repairs that seems like the ideal solution. Its odd when you read the other complaints, it seems even GMC doesn't know how to fix their own issues or don't know what is causing these problems. I read that GMC Terrains have had 131 bulletins wow. This engine rattling and whining sounds problem happened on Fri., May. 24, 2013.

The car was a 2006 Acura Mdx. On January 14, 2014 my daughter took our 2006 Mdx to the dealer for mechanical evaluation. The car has been hesitating while driving, trying to stop the car while driving. The diagnose came back with the following: transmission needs to be replaced and engine mounts have to be replaced as well for the total of around $7,200. In October 2008 (mileage 55k) the original transmission has been replaced with a re-manufactured part. December 2009 original symptoms (whining noise, shutter at 40-50 mph) have reoccurred and have been reported to dealer's mechanics. They could not see any problems. December 2010 whining noise started coming back again. Dealer's mechanics could not find anything wrong. Now we are faced with a transmission that is malfunctioning plus engine mounts have to be replaced. In speaking with Acura's customer care I was informed that the transmission replaced in 2008 was not an authentic Acura part. I kept insisting on more in depth explanation but did not receive any. It is my understanding that improperly working transmission causes damage to engine mounts. It seems Acura dealer's mechanics have somewhathow missed it. Acura is not willing to take responsibility for any of their omissions. Now the car is no longer under warranty. All of described instances are a huge safety hazard. Putting in non-authentic parts under the label of warranty is a fraudulent step. All services have been performed at jerry damson Honda dealership in huntsville, alabama. I would like a formal investigation. In addition I feel that dealership's mechanics should go through additional training to avoid future misdiagnoses and a reduce danger to consumers. This engine rattling and whining sounds problem happened on January 14, 2014.

The car was a 2008 Honda Accord. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1HGCP26478_. 8/11:certified pre-owned purchased from Honda dealer at 35787 mi oil changes: 3/15/2012: 41659mi; 9/6/2012: 48687mi 7/1/54340mi-oil pressure warning light and rattling noise appears;vehicle immediately taken to suburban Honda dealer (farmington hills, mi);no diagnostic codes given. Only explanation was the oil level was too low and the noise disappeared when oil was filled. No explanation for suspected leak/excessive consumption despite last oil change being just 6000mi back 3/18/14:oil pressure warning light flashes once and car was not started until I made an appointment with suburban Honda on 3/20/2013 3/20/62450 mi- within 0. 25mi of my way to dealer, the oil pressure light flashes in the middle of a signal intersection and engine fails amidst heavy traffic thereby, compromising my safety. On 1st notice(7/13), dealer completely neglected my concerns for oil leak/malfunction which led to massive engine damage (estimate $8000). Negligence led to engine failure on road causing massive compromise to my safety. Death could have been imminent if my car stalled on a freeway. Honda has a design flaw resulting in excessive oil consumption noted by multiple customers. Dealer did not recommend an oil consumption test despite oil levels reaching critical levels within 6000mi of previous oil change. I was informed Accord consumes 1 quart of oil/ 1000mi and since my mileage was beyond Honda limits, I'm to be held responsible. Dealer mentioned that ¿apology� is what they can offer and that ¿no cost will be on dealer since it is not their responsibility�. Official rep of american Honda stated that this is purely a maintenance issue and that they do not possess ownership of dealer and have nothing to say reg irresponsibility of the official Honda dealer. Honda's design flaw&irresponsible dealers neglecting this issue could result in severe bodily injury or death. This problem occurred on March 19, 2014.

The vehicle is a 2012 Hyundai Veloster. Purchased car on 5/5/2012 with 6 miles on it. Within less than a week and 200 miles the transmission began clicking. Took it into Hyundai and they stated it needed a new transmission. After 2 1/2 weeks the transmission was replaced as Hyundai refused to give me a different car. Since then the car cannot accelerate, sounds "clunky" and when going at low speeds sounds like the gear isn't engaging and sounds/feels like it would if you released a clutch too early. Car loses power and sounds like it's about to die. A hissing and rattling sound under the hood happens as well. After taking it in to dealer, dealer states they could not find the sounds or noises or loss of power I was having. Rpms rev really high before engaging in first gear. Dealer still won't do anything since they can't diagnose it. I have almost been in multiple accidents for failure of power and car not accelerating. Takes about 3-5 seconds before it goes. Brakes grab too easily as well. Loss of gas mileage (around 6-7 mpg) was reported to dealer but dealer told me it was due to "winter gas. " I can understand 2-3 mpg difference but 6-7 is too much. Car has also been in the shop for a week for the car alarm going off constantly for no reason. A piece of the windshield plastic also fell off for no reason when car was 3 weeks old. Dealer duct taped that part down until a new part could be ordered. This issue happened on Friday, May 11, 2012.

The car involved is a 2006 Infiniti G35. The VIN of this vehicle was JNKCV54E26_. When my leased 06' G35 coupe hit around 6,000 miles it started making a rattling sound from under the hood. When I brought the car to the dealership to be checked on they advised me that my engine was consuming too much oil & that the engine would have to be replaced. They replaced the engine but than at around 7,000 miles the same noise came back. I have been to the dealership 4 times in the last 3 months and everytime I go back the car is 2-3 qrts oil low. The problem is that the engine that they replaced my old engine with has the same issue & it will continue to happen unless I am given a new manufactured engine - which seems to be unavailable. This is a major safety concern for my family & I want them to take back the vehicle or provide me with a new engine. I have complained to Infiniti consumer affairs who are aware of the situation but I feel I am getting nowhere. Ininiti consumer affairs states that the case is being researched. This is unacceptable for a leased vehicle & it needs to be addressed. The failure date was Thursday, May 17, 2007.

The car involved is a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. A Jeep authorized dealership changed the engine oil and oil filter for my vehicle. About 15 minutes after I took my vehicle from the dealership, the incident happened on a highway. "service transmission" warning showed up first, the engine light was on, and some electronic functions were disabled, which include, but are not limited to, the forward collision warning, the parksense, the lane sense, and the adaptive cruise control. The esc activation / malfunction indicator light was on. There was loud rattling noise from the engine, and the vehicle was shaking while moving on the highway. I had a difficult time moving the vehicle off the highway. After I parked on a surface road, I found no engine oil was registered on the dipstick. The leaked oil was splashed over the vehicle's exterior. In particular, it covered the parking sensors and the rear window, which disabled the electronic safety features and greatly reduced my visibility while driving. The vehicles behind me on the highway were also splashed by the leaked oil and were beeping and/or cutting in my lane to complain. The dealership determined that the rubber ring that seals the cartridge housing of the oil filter was broken, causing the engine oil leak. This o-shaped rubber ring comes with the oem oil filter that was installed when the oil filter was changed. The engine was damaged. The dealership stated that no test drive is required to check if there is a leak for oil change service. Three other Jeep dealerships confirmed this claim. I believe there is a design defect in the oil filter sealing that can cause life threatening accidents. I believe Jeep does not instruct their authorized dealership to implement an oil filter change procedure that ensures a part defect like this would be discovered before the vehicle leaves the dealership. It was 03/05/14 when this engine rattling and whining sounds issue happened.

The car involved was a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle was parked and I attempted to start the vehicle. The car was operating properly 3 minutes prior to attempted starts. The first attempt, the engine fired up and revved up but immediately died. Subsequent attempts were similar. After about 4 or 5 attempts, there was a large rattling noise and the engine became impossible to start. After towing the vehicle to a mechanic and having them open up the engine, we found that the valve seat had dropped out from the cylinder heads and must have caused the engine to operate incorrectly. The valve seat had shattered into many tiny pieces, which most likely caused the rattling noise. Upon investigation I have found that the valve seat dropping out is a common issue on the 5. 7l hemi engine in my Jeep as well as other vehicles manufactured by Dodge and Chrysler. This is unsafe and should require the immediate action of Chrysler to recall these vehicles and permanently fix the problem with their valve seats. The failure date was August 3, 2013.

At first I thought I had picked up somthing on the road, but as I accelerated/deccelerated the noise became louder/softer. I immediatley contacted my kia dealership. After speaking to the service manager he told me to bring the vehicle in next week since that would be the soonest it could be looked at. I informed him that I did'nt think I could even make it home let alone wait a week to bring the vehicle in. He stated I could drop it off, but it would not be looked at until next week.

It stayed that way for about 5 miles,we could slow down but the rpm's were still stuck at 6500 and the engine was making a horrible sound, the car would not accelerate and several times we had to ride the shoulder of the road. When we finally reached the road we live off of my husband was able to slow down and turn while turning the awful noise got a little lower but a new noise was heard, a whining sound. After turning, the car lost all gas, nothing happened when the accelerator was pushed and then finally it started to go again. We arrived at our home my husband opened the hood and told me to press the accelerator a little and then he saw small puffs of smoke. I smelled something like burning rubber while sitting in the drivers seat and my husband said he smelled something sweet under the hood. This car was bought brand new on January 4th, 2014, it had 25 miles when purchased. The mileage on January 11th was around 500. This is a dangerous vehicle, I am waiting on the dealership to call and let me know what they find. This problem occurred on Sunday, January 12, 2014.

The vehicle is a 2009 Nissan Gt-r. The VIN of the car is JN1AR54F09_. About a year ago, every once in a while at a stop light with the car idling, we would hear a slight rattling noise. But every time we brought it to the dealer, which is only a few miles from our house, the noise was not there or not enough to bring it into shop to be checked out so nothing was ever documented. The noise was intermittent because it was the early stages of the "rattle from the flywheel housing" condition. One time my husband brought the car to the dealer and without checking it in let the gtr tech hear a recording he made of the noise when it was happening. The tech response was that the sound did appear to be the infamous "fly wheel housing rattle," but when he heard the car running at that time, the intermittent problem was not occurring and he replied to the slight noises we were hearing as normal to this cars design. Now the noise is worse because this condition developed to the point where it is no longer intermittent. On 11/25/13 my husband took the car to Nissan of smithtown and was told that the car is out of warranty, and could bring it in at our cost. Nissan's service bulletin is at09-010 ntb09-147 2009-2010 Gt-r rattle from flywheel housing December 18, 2009. This is a condition that develops over time, not one that one moment it works and the next it doesn't. It's not that my husband did not document the problem before the warranty expired or that the condition progressed to the point of needing attention two months after the warranty expired, but that Nissan is transferring the responsibility of their design flaw, which they have documented with their service bulletin, to the unsuspecting owner who may have a similar situation where this flywheel rattle happens to them outside of the warranty. Buyer beware! we strongly believe this should be a recall item! we are urgently requesting your assistance in this issue. This engine rattling and whining sounds problem happened on Monday, January 7, 2013.

The car is a 2013 Subaru Impreza. The VIN of this vehicle was JF1GPAL62D_. Vehicle will not start after an extended period of attempts. Appears to happen most often when vehicle is parked (either indoors or outside) for more than several hours. Car will crank over for 10+ seconds and will not start. After multiple attempts, car has started eventually. Have communicated with dealer and sia offices that I have noticed the car will make whirring noises that come from the back rh side of vehicle - and also a clicking noise near center of dash when turned off and sitting. This will go on for over 5 minutes at a time, which must drain battery since car is not turned on or engine running. Was told by dealer that this is the emission system "purging" itself - and is considered normal for this vehicle. Sia offices confirmed this and also stated that nothing is noted in the current owners manual which explains this feature. My concern is that the car is unable to start when required to - and am guessing that it might be related to this unusual feature. . . . Regardless of origin, safety issue with car not starting and being ready to operate when normal starting procedures are followed. This issue happened on Friday, Feb. 1, 2013.

The car involved is a 2009 Toyota Corolla. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was JTDBL40E89_. My engine started making a rattle sound when starting it up. I searched online and found several complaints about this problem. It seems to be a defective cam shaft timing gear assembly, which is no longer covered by my warranty. I am upset that this has not been recalled, since it is a serious concern especially when it deals with the vehicle's engine. I hope Toyota will take responsibility for this. There are many people out there with the same problem. Toyota already has had several recalls for this vehicle, so why not back the engine?. This problem occurred on December 2, 2013.

My Volvo V70 has been dying immediately after starting the engine and has progressively gotten worse over the last 6 months. Have had two trips to a mechanic who repaired a few parts, but it didn't fix it. Problem continues. Recently, we were driving on the highway at about 65 mph and the car speed dropped to about 20 mph and couldn't go any faster and we had to pull over. This is a major safety risk. Now the car starts and immediately dies for about 4-5 times before it will start and continue running. There is a whirring noise coming from the electronic throttle when it dies immediately. I took it to a Volvo dealer and they said a recall for a software update was performed on my car in 2006 to lower the wear inside the throttle. Then Volvo issued a service campaign for the etm when it fails, but the campaign lasted until 200,000 miles or 10 years. So even though the car has only 94k miles and the recall software was installed only 25k miles ago, Volvo won't replace a critical part to the safe operation of the vehicle because the 10 years have passed. So the dealer and Volvo refussed to replace this part even though the etm already had a recall and service campaign in the past. 2 actions to address a defective part, but Volvo didn't fix the problem and I have a bad part in my Volvo that is unsafe. It was 10/01/2013 when this engine rattling and whining sounds issue happened.
