Rattling noise

well actually you have to get a special type of oil filter that has a release valve in them so that when you turn the engine of the oil wont drain out because of how the filter is positioned, I learn that from the nissan dealer and your right it's popular in mazdas and fords and other cars, but it stop for a while then it started back so I was thinking the time chain or the valves need adjusting

There is nothing special about the oil filter. All oil filters listed for our cars have anti-drainback valves in them, no matter who the manufacturer is. Nissan does not make oil filters. They have oil filter companies make them for them. Just use a name brand oil filter that is listed for your car.

sometime a small shop or even a parts store will know the better parts for your car than the dealer. dont always trust the dealers. plus parts stores are cheaper.
