Rattle/Knocking Sound

Postby 09 Limited - September 7th, 2016, 10:57 pm

After 25 miles on the highway and about 4 miles of local roads, I pulled into my driveway and noticed a rattle and knocking sound from under the hood. The sound goes away with slight revving and then resumes when at idle. I shut the car off and started it again and the sound was stopped until I revved it a little and it came back. Does anybody have any suggestions on what the source could be?

So if it's happening when idling, let it idle, pop the hood and get out of your car and raise the hood and check things out. Have someone rev it while Looking in the engine bay.

Thanks for the advice, I brought it to the dealer to have it looked at under the warranty they said it seems to be an AC compressor issue. As they isolated it and got it to stop and start by turning the AC on and off. Picking it up tomorrow and hoping for the best
