Do your valves rattle? Has you timing belt been replaced on time?

I have had this car for less than a year and the guy I got it from lied and riped me off . I spent about 3 k to get it fixed and one of them was the timing belt and what valves would that be . I'm still kinda Learing parts of cars .


Valves In Head. Is the noise from Starter? Where is the noise from?


It hasn't done it for awhile but I think it's from the front and I did one pint when I got it fixed one of the pistons were sounding werid and that was right after I got it off the lot and the guy used thus stuff to see if it would stop . Thinking it was a cracked piston when I herd it pop . But now it's fine just that sound that I hear every so often . Ever since I got it of the dealers lot it's still making that weird sound
