 have a 1987 audi 4000 s (non quattro). It makes a rattle similar to bearing noise. However, the sound occurs only at 2000 rpm's and above. It is worse when the car is not under load, but it is not constant (it comes and goes) under these conditions. Occasionally, the noise is evident during acceleration above 2000 rpm's. This is not valve noise. The oil pressure is good. I heard something about a tsb that mentioned that the 1.8 in the 4000's had defective wrist pins.  Do you think this could be the problem?  
Any Ideas or comments would be appreciated

Thanks,

Jeff
