Hi all,

I need some help with a couple of thing if possible.

1. I have a rattling sound coming from what appears to be under the rear of the car, similar to a loose exhaust hitting the tank. I have checked the exhaust and it is secure . anyone have any ideas as to the possible cause??

2. I have an intermittent rough idling problem a variation of anything up to 600 rpm approx but only at idle. I have replaced the fuel filter, run injector cleaner through it and replaced the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump

3. Passenger side electric window goes up about 3/4 if the way and then takes a dive towards the front and locks up. The rear of the window looks like it is ready to run out of its runner, I have sprayed a silicon base spray and cleaned the runners but to no avail it still does it.

Sorry about the multiple questions but I have run out of ideas.... any and all help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers Scanner

Your idle problem - Your MAP sensor might need replacing or it could be your plugs or leads.
Have you cleaned the throttle body and the ISC? They build up with carbon over time so a good clean can get the idle running good again. How is your fuel consumption? Does it tend to use more now it has the idle problem? Just another thing while I think of it mate, Check that the inlet manifold bolts are tight.... It can often lead to rough idle if the bolts are loose (You may even need a new inlet manifold gasket).
