Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2012 Forester has 5K miles. I occasionally hear a rattling noise after I start the vehicle and put it in drive or reverse and am turning out of a driveway or parking lot. The noise stops after about 15 minutes of driving. I had my first oil change at 4000 miles and the dealer said they took the car for a test drive, heard no noise, and their inspection of the car found nothing. Any ideas or similar problems?

I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.

Have you checked your belts? A piece of belt may have come off and been slapping under your hood, and then fell off completely. While it was slapping, your computer would have detected the slow down of pulleys etc. and caused your engine light to come on. Then when the piece broke off, everything would be back to normal. Let me know!

On mine, I got under there and there are rocks rattling in the heat shield. There are factory made holes in it, and the rocks sit in there like eggs in a carton and rattle when the engine hits a certain vibration frequency which is basically when it is at a stop light or idling. The repair shop wanted to charge to cut them off but I think I am going to drill bigger holes so the rocks fall out, as they are pretty tiny.

I had the same problem on my 2006 Lucerne and it was the engine mount located on the front of the vehicle behind the radiator.
