The Clicking which is making you annoyed

The Voice of Rattling
When you buy a Japanese used car from the market, you must visit the car doctor immediately as there can be some issues which must be solved right in time. In it, you must hear the voices of your car engine in which the most prominent one is the rattling. This voice is due to the timing chains which can be seen in the overhead camshafts.

It happens when the rod present noises due to lack of lubrication as the old oil create issues. If you are not properly changing engine oil, it will damage the crankshaft and bearing and at the end, destroy the engine as well.
Muffled Metallic Clatter
