Annoying rattle … Updated

Update: I had left the oxygen sensor socket on the sensor.

I’ve developed an annoying rattle. I only hear it when accelerating, especially from a stop. It’s high pitched and metallic sounding. Very faint though. Seems to be getting louder. Clutch? Tranny? Loose bolt?



Oh well, it gives me the opportunity to assess my oil leak.

  1. How did your Rear Main Seal perform after your install from 2009. I found your pictures and explanations very informative. I have my clutch being replaced by a shop, but I want to address things like the RMS but also avoid the after leaks of a new seal that can occur if done hastily.
    You put the seal 1mm from the frsh metal etc…

    If there is a better method to contact you, please advise me.

    With Respect,

  2. The rms has been leak free. I’ve done it again on a second motor installed, leak free again. If you’re getting a new clutch installed, a new rms and carrier is advisable. Using a new carrier is key! Yes, recessing the seal 1mm is a must too.
