My car started making a strange rattling noise a few days ago. It is not from the engine as the car runs fine, does not smoke, and the engine temp is fine. I had a complete brake job recently, so I doubt it's loose calipers, also the car brakes well too. I checked the alternator, it is mounted tightly, and the belts are tight as well. The sound is worse when starting, idleing you can still hear it but not has loud. The car doesn't wobble, so it's not the engine mounting.

Since I can't hear the noise over the internet, it will be hard for me to help you. You seem to have eliminated a bunch of things yourself, so just keep looking is the best advice I can give you. You'll find it eventually.

Hello,
On the off chance that it is originating from in the engine then it might be belt tensioner pulley or idler pulley bearing going terrible.

different suspects could be the water pump, force controlling, Alternator or A/C pulley - difficult to make sure.
Thanks
