Rattle at 2000 revs

Post by pum@thunder » Wed Nov 07, 2018 2:19 pm

Hey all,

I've just joined Project Puma! I've had a Puma Thunder for the last year and I was wondering if anyone knew what a rattle from underneath at exactly 2000 revs and only 2000 revs may be? I thought the heat shield?

Hi and welcome!

It's often the cam belt tensioner that rattles at 2000rpm.

Welcome to the site, its unlikely to be a heatshield as I'm sure you'd notice it at other RPM?
The gear stick sometimes 'tizzes' as well, holding it tends to stop it.
