Rattling noise from engine during acceleration, but quiet at idle speed. 5 spd manual gearbox


Asked by Sep 05, 2016 at 12:38 PM about the 1993 Mazda MX-6 2 Dr LS Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can someone please help me with a diagnosis on rattling noise in engine bay.  Noise is noticeable especially during acceleration between manual gear selection. Rattling will lessen or disappear if taken out of gear and allowed to coast with engine still running. 5 speed manual gearbox. ( 1993 Mazda MX6 v6 2.5L ) I heard a much fainter noise before and I thought it was just the fan/fan-shroud hitting something but this noise has become much more intense and sounds almost like a chain rattle. Otherwise, at idle with engine running engine is quite quiet.  Thanks & much appreciation as always to the many helpful members of this forum. I would try MX6dot com but I can't seem to figure it out, seems so convoluted. I think I need a degree/certification to figure their forum out.
