Rattling from the engine/high pitched when rpm's go high
I just purchased a 2003 kia spectra with 89,000 miles. I love the car and the mileage,
but I have 3 things I need help with (as I'm not a car expert).
1. there is a rattling sound coming from the engine, mostly when accelerating but not
when its idling. It sounds like a piece of metal is rattling around somewhere. any
2. when accelerating and making the rpms climb higher, the engine gets a little high
pitched when trying to switch gears. any idea what this is/how to fix it?
3. My radio and interior lights don't work, I checked the fuses and the look like they're
intact. What do I need to make them come back on?
1. Check the catalytict convertor heat shields, they tend to rust and hang. I'll wait for others to comment on 2 & 3.
