Question by  Ervin (95)

Why is there a clattering sound when my car is accelerating?


Answer by  JackMoulder (7)

Most probable cause is something going wrong in valves timing, that worsens with the engine rpm raise. This is quite easy and fast to be fixed by your mechanician. If valves timing is correct you have to check for something loose in transmission parts (gearbox and shafts) or in wheels.

clattering sound of your car during accelerating is due to wrong usage of your gears. May be your are using higher gear then required for particular speed.You can change the different gear and find right gear for that acceleration.

Any number of things could be causing this. Apply the parking brake, shift to neutral, and rev the engine to about 2500rpm. If the clattering sound starts, it's an engine problem, otherwise it's a drivetrain problem. Consult a qualified mechanic, in any case.

You possibly have a CV axle that is going bad and starting to grind. That would be an easy fix. Or your could have a loose tie-rod. Or you might need new balljoints.

The nature of the sound depends on where the noise is coming from. For example, if it sounds like it is coming from your dashboard, it might have something to do with the transmission.
