    Engine Rattle

    Hello all,

    I've had my new CT for just 2 months and this morning the engine rattled and clanked to life like a fifty year old Chevy would. I turned it off and tried again and the same awful rattle, I mean it's loud and almost sounds like the engine wants to fall out of my car! What the heck?! Once it warmed up a little the rattle stopped. I'm taking it into Lexus tonight but just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    You may want to try getting your fuel from a different source. Make sure the station that you purchase your fuel from pumps a high volume of gas...

    I had this same issue the other day after leaving the car outside for several days (a week) without using it and it was about 40F outside. Has not happened ever since.

    My CT started to do that as well, but only after driving it for a 50 minute highway trip. When I was parking it, it was rattling and shaking the car. I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow morning.

    Toyota has now finally released a TSB for this problem with the Prius. Haven't seen the equivalent for Lexus yet, but I have sent this one to my dealer. I've experienced this problem 3 or 4 times.
