New, help with rattling and I don't think it's normal!
I just purchased 2003 evo 8 for a stupid good price because they couldn't figure out a rattling noise coming from somwhere around the tranny, I believe. When I engage the clutch the noise immediately goes away and when I let go it comes back. flywheel loose? pressure plate? clutch busted? The clutch is super heavy and engages nice. I sometimes have a hard time getting into reverse, possibly effed? I've read many thing from heatshield to downpipe touching the crossbar... I don't think so. Either way I hope to post a video soon.
If my tranny is blown, even with a rebuild I will still come out way ahead btw. it was THAT stupid of a deal. I can post a video when I get back from church dudes!
So here is the latest. I was driving along an all of a sudden I lost power like I hit the brakes then a loud screech and grinding noise then all four wheels locked and and I came to an abrupt halt. Scariest situation ever. It's getting towed as I type to my mechanic. Any ideas now? lol
how were you driving? were you at WOT? did the ABS kick on? any warning lights on the dash? you need to have the car fully looked over and get a boost leak test too. The rattling could be anything, as far as getting into reverse, this is commen on a lot of mitsu's either let the tranny fully warmup or just shift into first then down to reverse.
No I wasn't driving wot, no warning lights, and the abs didn't kick on because I didn't use the brakes and I know for sure it's not the brakes. Calling the shop now to see what's the deal. Cool man thanks for the heads up about reverse. I'm going from a six speed gear box that is pretty spectacular to this one. Completely different beast.
The engine started up just fine and I threw it into first and released the clutch while accelerating and went nowhere. So it's either the tranny or tc. I hope not both after this incident. But no it wasn't really movable even in neutral something was stopping it from going. When the tow truck came I held the clutch in and it finally budged.
