Post engine rattle

Today I was driving for a while and when I got home I heard the scariest noise from under my hood hood. I turned the car off and heard the engine rattle as if it were falling out of the car. I checked under the hood to make sure none of the mounts were broken and they seemed fine.

Sounds like engine run on. Bad gas would cause this or timing.

Sounds like run-on to me too. As stated, could be low octane gas, engine running lean (high combustion temps), ign. timing. Probably just a bad tank of gas if it just happened out of the blue.

Where do you get your gas at? Hopefully not a 7-11. Those guys who haul that gas take a detour by their house and dump about a 100 gallons into some tanks and fill their tanker up with some water.I know for a fact that some of the people who haul gas do that,especially 7-11. Try Texico or Shell. Oh and by the way watch the tankers that pull in. It seems funny to me that there is only one kind of octane that they haul but they put the gas in different tanks that are supposed to be a higher octane. Steve

Steve, been in the gas business for years with 2 major oil companies and independent trucking companies, I've never heard of anyone putting water in tankers. 7-11 gas in this area comes from a pipeline based in Oklahoma City. Fast idle can also cause run on.

Don't mind Steve, he was obviously a big X-Files fan.

Steve, must you act like a five year old. The only people on this board that their posts constantly look like this *** ***** ** **** * are you, the puppy, and sometimes Neil. Is your vocabulary that limited that you can't just write without every other word being edited out or do you just think that we're going to read all your edits and go 'wow he's tough man, better not mess with him'? Are they like your security blanket?

Steve, not calling anyone anything. I've gotten my share of free gas from trucks, really loved it when friends hauled av. gas. Also tried ethanol, couldn't use too much though.

I really could care less if anyone does or doesn't believe me. It's not like I know anyone on here personally. Steve

Just to let you know there have been some tankers caught thru the years by the police here in Mich. for diluting the gas with water and other types of junk.

I'm sorry but you can't just mix gasoline and water together! They don't mix without adding another ingredient such as alcohol that will interact with both water and gasoline! You can see this by simply letting a little rain get in your lawnmowers fuel tank! The water will set on top and if you have enough fuel the lawnmower will run until it starts sucking water. Common sense will tell you that if stations were trying this, some people would end up getting full tanks of water!

OKay can I give my two sense... I used to work at a gas station not like it matters cuz this is more of a common sense thing... Anyhow the tanks are drained from the bottom (they have to otherwise they would be sucken and getting air and the tanks would still have gas in em)... Water sits on top of gas... Now when I worked at shell snow and rain and such would get into the tanks when we did dips.. It doesn't matter though cuz it just sits on top and since the gas drains from the bottom and the level never gets low enough for the tanks to get that dry you will always have pure gas being put into your vehical.. Unless there is a tremendous amount of water in there but the gas station workers can tell when they do dips because you are supposed to use a water paste to check how much water is in there when you do dips (not like we ever did but then again my boss was a jerk and didn't care about customers or employees) So yeah.. the chances of there being any significant amount of water coming out of the pumps into your gas tank is very low..
