Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
My car makes an awful rattling noise in the left lower front, it sounds like something is about to fall off, you can especially hear it when you hit a bump or go down a dirt road. Its been in the shop for 3 wks, and nobody can figure out whats going on, we've had the intermediate shaft replaced, struts and strut mounts replaced, tie rod end links replaced and still its rattling. The mechanic said the suspension was all tight nothing was loose, the only thing that made a little noise was the motor mount, he was going to replace that, but we stopped him before we spent more money and nothing got fixed. My husband's a mechanic also and he didn't think it was the motor mount either, but he can't figure out whats ratteling. What is your suggestion, its driving us crazy?
Check all the bushings and make sure they are not loose. General Motors bushings are prone to cracking.

When you changed out the struts, did you also replace the Strut Bearing Mounts that mount the struts to the strut towers on the car? These things are notorious for making the rattling sound.
