possible if oil is watery thin, and hot. sparkplugs also will weaken current flow if coated with deposits from poor fuel sold!

Please clarify the rattle noise. Did it rattle from the front (engine compartment are ?), the back (exhaust clamp that broke or muffler hanger broke ?) or the middle underneath your floorboards (exhaust hanger ?).
