Rattle coming from near starter area

Post by mezje » Sun Nov 19, 2017 6:39 pm

So I changed the oil today, went from Penrite 10w40 (full snyth) to Castrol 10w40 (semi synth) and changed the Ryco filter to the same filter and now have a rattle coming from around the start area, any ideas?

Here are some videos:

Did screw driver to ear on zorst and block and didn't seem to be them... :(

When I turn the car on the rattle appears once the car drops back to idle. It doesn't go up with revs either.

Is the starter motor loose?

How is the metal cover thing that directs oil drips away from the starter? Is it loose or pushed into contact with something that would vibrate it?

Pop the rubber boot that goes over the clutch fork on the gearbox and have a look to see if any loose bolts in the bell housing. Also while driving do some hard left turns and see if the rattle comes back in the turn.

Only rattles at idle, nothin while turning.

I suspect it is crank pulley, gonna take off and see how fucked keyway is...

Well I had a bit of a torn power steering belt which was rattling/slapping like crazy after a day at the track. Changed that out and seemingly no rattle now, fingers crossed thats all it was.
