    engine noise

    Today i started my engine and there was a rattlting sound every few seconds just for a second and then it would go away. The weather was not cold but it was around noon, in colorado. After the engine warmed up the noise stopped, there was no performance loss, and the engine light never came on.

    Also i bought the car with 110,000 miles on it, is there a way to check if i need a new timing belt without taking off the other belts and the cover?
    Thanks

    Did you check that all your heatshields are secured? The only way to check the T-belt without pulling the cover (s) is to look at the maintaince history..Was there any provided with the car? What model / year is your vehicle?

    Personally If I where you I would pull the belt covers and take a peek at the belt..You don't want to gamble on something like that fore as im sure you know its a highly interference engine if the belt does slip, break. accessory belt cover nut/bolt :10mm, both lock bolt and lock nut :12mm adjusting bolts: 12mm T-belt cover bolts :10mm A/C idler pulley bracket bolts: 12mm ...If you feel like digging into it that is...
