    This PI has been revised to add Recommendation/Instructions and Warranty information. Please discard PI1234A.




    Condition/Concern


    Some customers may comment on a brief rattle or tick when revving the engine when the vehicle is in P (Park) or N (Neutral). The same rattle or tick can sometimes be heard at the beginning or end of a vehicle acceleration while in D (Drive).

    Some Service Technicians when performing a Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) may also notice this brief rattle or tick under the same conditions.

    A Service Technician may determine that the source of the noise is the turbocharger (TC) wastegate.

    Cause


    This condition may be caused by loose converter brackets nuts or a normal characteristic of the turbocharger (TC) wastegate.

    Recommendation/Instructions



    Inspect the M8 nuts that secure the catalytic converters to the exhaust bracket. RPO LF3 (1) and RPO LF4 (2) as shown above. If the nuts are loose, it is necessary to replace them with new torque prevailing nuts.

    If the technician finds that the nuts are torque correctly, DO NOT replace the turbocharger assembly in an effort to eliminate this brief rattle or tick.
