Thread: Weird Rattle Sound

    Weird Rattle Sound

    Hey All,

    Been getting this weird metal on metal rattle sound when at part throttle or sometimes idle. The transmission doesn't have to be in drive to get this sound either. A quick shot of gas while in park or neutral and the sound is there. Has anyone else experienced this...if so did you figure out what it was? I tried to videotape the sound but all my camera picked up was wind noise so it was a bust for video. I brought it back to the dealer that I bought it from and they couldn't replicate the problem. It only seems to happen on dry days...rainy days the sound is gone. Don't make any sense to me.

    I had a sound similar to what you've explained. At my buddies shop he took a look and one of the clamps holding the exhaust heatshield was broken so he put a new clamp on

    I didn't get a chance to tackle this today cuz the weather took a turn for the crapper. Just wonderign through. Can I get to this shield/clamp from under the hood or do I need to creep my way under the car?
