EDIT/UPDATE: Apparently, the noise is the water pump. It wasn't displaying any of the classic signs of water pump failure, so that never even occurred to me. But eventually the pump seized and shredded the timing belt. Replaced those bits, and it's back to normal, sounding great (or, as great as a Neon can sound, anyway). Thanks to everyone who replied to this with ideas!
Anyone have any idea what this noise might be?
This video is documenting an odd rattle that is apparently coming from the bottom-end of the engine. It's a 2L SOHC four cylinder. No idea what's making the noise, but it doesn't seem to affect drivability any, nor does it raise the temperature or muck with the oil pressure.
2000 neon vlog
This is a vlog type deal that I am going to do with my 2000 SOHC neon. I am
planning on doing a few performance mods to make some more horsepower and I will be
updating everyone through these videos. I will try to post updates as often
as I can. NO HATE COMMENTS!!!
Rattling 02 Dodge Neon
Rattling noise from my 02 dodge neon... I don't know exactly what it is...
I think my camshaft is worn, not sure, if any ideas what it might be, then
let me know, I really appreciate it.
The car doesn't do this noise when it hasn't been on for a while (cooled
off). Just after its warmed up it starts rattling again... It used to be to
where it rattled when I accelerated, but now its all the time it is on and

Online mechanics, diagnose this noise! *read description*
Noise appears to be coming from somewhere in the head. When started from
cold, noise is almost un-noticeable. As the engine warms up the noise gets
louder, especially when revved. Also, when cold the oil pressure light is
off, as the engine warms up the oil pressure light comes on. Also, engine
seems to be down on power. Won't rev up properly, even when not in gear.

The reason why the engine has to be rebuilt.
Head Gasket Check
Think you've got an overheating situation because of a blown head gasket?
Fill the cooling system with water (never open it hot!!!!) and remove all
the spark plugs. Reinstall the #1 spark plug and spin the engine over - if
the water level rises with each compression stroke, the gasket is blown.
You may see the water level go down due to water pump activity, but that
only means you're filling air pockets. Rising water followed by bubbles
tells the real tale. If the number 1 cylinder doesn't show anything, move
that same spark plug to cylinder number two and retest. If the head gasket
is blown and is heating up the water with leaking combustion gasses, you'll
see the water rising with each compression stroke. We tested cylinders 1,
2, and 3 on this engine before we got results. Be aware that head gaskets
can blow in several different ways and this is just one of them. Other
symptoms might be caused by a misfire that happens for a few seconds on
cold start only - if if does that, shut the engine off while it's misfiring
and remove all the spark plugs - if any of the plugs is covered with
coolant, the head gasket is leaking coolant into the cylinder, which is
fairly common on some engines. If one spark plug is very sooty and the rest
of them are clean, the injector may be leaking on that cylinder. Head
gaskets can also blow between two cylinders, which will cause low
compression on those to adjacent ones.
2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 1
Inspection - This is Gregg's Car. The water pump seized and blew the
timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the head because
there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But other than a
TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at http://www.reinsmith.net
Doing Compression Check On My 98 Dodge Neon
I was bored today so I was going to make video on how to do a compression
check. THANKS FOR WACTHING.
