Is this noise normal ...

Is this noise normal ...

When I reverse my car - UK 2002 996 Targa - on a very light or no throttle, there engine makes a pretty noticeable rattling noise. If I use a modest throttle and when driving under normal and hard conditions it sounds great and gors fine.

Also, my washer jets seem to have become rather pathetic over the past few weeks. Is there a common place to look for a fault / blockage before I start to remove the plastic work beneath the bonet and poke around? There doesn't seem to be anything fowling the nozzles.

Thanks for any input.

Just when you start to back up or does the rattle continue?

Could be a partially plugged line or a bad motor or a leak. Most of the tank and pump are under the left front fender (even on RHD cars I think).

Doesn't make the noise on start up or tick over, just on a tick over rpm if reverse is selected or when on a very light throttle.
