Does anybody know when the engine is about to stall, its makes this weird rattling sound? My engine has been doing this noise more and more when I disengage the clutch and engage the throttle. Can it be from just a tired clutch? I think somebody said this noise is called "chattering" but I don't really know anything. If its not the clutch that is the problem then can it be my pistons knocking? I hope not! I don't know what pinging and knocking sounds like... I just want to know what the problem can be before heading over to the stealership to have them check it out.

Thanks

Is it loud?
I can hear a strange sound when I turn off everything but engine.
So it is very quiet inside. Otherwise I can't hear it.

It sounds like a loose spring vibrating, and it happens when I lift off the gas pedal a little bit.

And sometimes I can hear it sometimes I can't.

The dealer said it is normal, but I am not even sure if he know what I am talking since I only describe it in his office, not during driving.

Hey man its that exact noise that I have. It also happens during low rpms and at high rpms that "loose vibrating sound" goes away. But mine used to be very low and only sometimes, now it happens alot more often and alot louder.
