I have a problem, when i rev my motor there is a quiet rattle but when i get off the throttle it becomes even louder, it seems like it is coming from the right side under the hood. it does it anywhere in the rpms. has anyone experienced this[confused]. my motor had 175855km on it.

thanks,

Matt

My guess is a belt tensioner. It could also be a loose heat shield or exhaust contacting something. Pop the hood and listen and look around.
