Need help fast!!!!!

OK, started the ole Jeep up today, sounded fine. Turned up the stereo and headed over to a buddy of mine. When I got there I turned off the stereo and heard what sounded like a rock stuck in my engine. I left it running and poped the hood, nothibng outta the ordinary. Turned it off, back on, still there. It sounds like there is a rock rattlein around in it. Any takers?

It sound like its comeing from under the hood or under the jeep?

I know that with some types of cats when they fall apart they sound like rocks jumping around..

Re: Need help fast!!!!!

Coming from the block, me and my old man just went out and looked at it and he says it sounds like it is coming from the timing chain, oh and it doesn't speed up with higher RPMs, just a rattle. Its not a constent rattle either.

Re: Need help fast!!!!!

1. Something ain't right.
2. I'd pull the pan,
3. And look at the rods, bearings and oil.
4. I'd pull the Valve cover and look at the valve springs.
5. What I'd NOT do is run it any more till I found the noise source.
