Hey everyone!

I have been getting a rattling noise coming from the engine on my EB. It seems to dissappear once I rev the car above the idle speed. She still idles perfectly but its kinda like metal on metal rattle. Any ideas on what it could be? Cheers :)

i have recently changed the oil to shell older engines 25-60w which did improve the noise a little. The noise doesnt really bother me, i just dont want my car to break thats all! I guess i'm just wondering if it a serious problem or if i should just ignore it. oil pressure is good, seem to go no lower than half way on the guage on my cluster.
thanks for the reply:)
