Rattling noise coming from under my car

Postby Dede » Fri Sep 19, 2014 8:38 pm

okay so i've been hearing some minor rattling coming from under my car for awhile. I've had a few people checked it out and no one... I REPEAT no can tell me exactly what it is and where it is coming from. Like i explained to them i only hear this when I'm pressing the gas petal. Can some one with a similar problem help me out!! This is soooooo annoying. and i'm tired of carrying my car around to people that doesn't know what the problem is.

Check the heatshields around d various exhaust parts especially around the cats..when they get rusty they will rattle...u can always remove them
