what is that noise (ratteling) noise when accellerating or on 20rpm

sorry if this has been answered before.....

I have a lovely 1.4 gp dualogic 2006 reg ... the problem is when i am driving and approach or i am on 20rpm there is this irritating rattling/gurgling noise. This noise does not occur at any other point other than stated above.
I am quite concerned and would like to know if anyone else has experienced it or has had it rectified/ solved the problem.
I actually cannot take the noise much longer it is coming from the drivers side , i would be very grateful if anyone had any tips/helpful hints / insight

many thanks

Does it sound like it could be coming from the rear section of the car? I've got the same problem around 1,500rpm and again at 3,000rpm...

Pretty sure it is just a bolt that needs tightened holding the exhaust pipe to the body, just before the back box.

Can always get someone to rev it to the exact count and keep it there while you investigate the source of the sound?

Hi, and welcome,

my suspicion is it's related to the Gearbox/ drivetrain,
so..it does it both accelerating up to @20 and slowing down to @20..?,

if this is the case, put it into a lower / higher gear, and see if it's Still at the @ 20 MPH mark.. or if the noise "shifts" depending on gear selected,

have a try and let us know,

there are a couple of people on here who know the semi-auto's VERY well,

Charlie - Oxford

Re: what is that noise (ratteling) noise when accellerating or on 20rpm

thank you for all ur replies

i am going to drive it today and see if i can identify more closely where is is coming from and in which gears.

amazingly revving the car this sound don't occur. so when i explained this noise to someone earlier this week and they asked me to rev the car the noise tried to make me look like a madwoman because it wasn't occurring

thank you for the advice about the exhaust too. I'm going to service the car on thurdsay so I will have a good look on the heat shield and the bolts.

thanks fellow gp friends
I will keep you all updated

I had the very same issue - got it back in place and all is quiet in the world!
