Strange Rattling at 5000rpm.. ??

Car: 1997 Honda Prelude 2.0I

Was driving today and just noticed a very loud metal rattling noise when the rev counter went about 5000 rpm. There was no noise on up the revs and it didn't happen on the way the rev counter.

I stuck in the clutch and rev'd it to 5000 or so and the noise happens everytime.

Anyone any idea what this is or whats causing it???

I had excessive rattling noises recently and found out it was my cat's inner lining, i removed tha cat, shook it and that was the prob, i'd hear it sometimes while driving & whenever i turned off tha lude

Another forum had lots of replies saying it could be the heat shield so I'm going to check that.

Not really a high RPM issue.... but the H22's had an issue with the timing belt tensioner. I had to do mine already. Take a screwdriver and put it on the timing belt cover, and rev the engine a little. Also, put the screwdriver on the engine mount thats right there. The belts not that hard, so its not a big deal if you have to change the tensioner.

I had this problem on my explorer actually, and every so often I hear other cars that have it. It'd be like if you smacked soda cans together really really fast am I correct??? I never found out the problem with mine, but it always sounded to me like it was between the engine and transmission. May possibly be the cat and you really just dont realize it.

Re: Strange Rattling at 5000rpm.. ??

Are you positive it's not your cat? Hit your exhaust with your hand... If you hear that rattle then bingo, your ceramic pieces have been broken up. Your cat is in the middle-to-front of your car. When I rev up to 4.5k rpm I hear my fart can rattle cause of my broken cat. And it sounds like it's coming from the front of the car when really it's the cat... I dunno. It's just a suggestion to hit your exhaust with your hand to find out...
