    Yeah, I didn't hear it at all so far today on my way to the gym and back so I have no clue...everything seems to be fine...I still smell the sweet smell of coolant but no smoke anymore. When I swapped out turbo's I couldn't seem to get the coolant lines pinched off so I just let it leak out into a container and the ground...so I am sure there is still alot of unburnt coolant all over my car.....ehh.....

    So If my rattling is infact shaft play...would I hear it all the time...or just certain times...cause I only seem to hear it when I am slowly accelerating and its only for a split second than it goes away...I am trying to pinpoint what this is...cause when i put my turbo on it didn't seem to have any shaft play...

    seriously... did you check the heat shield? It's a pretty common thing, and only happens at certain RPMs due to resonation...

    Yeah I just took the heat shield off and took a lap around the block...no rattling...so I only had two bolts holding it on..im gonna go out later and get another one for the third hole..thanks man...I feel relieved...so hopefully it just wasn't coincidence that it didn't rattle this time around...
