Question about 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
2005 nissan pathfinder SE. 40,000 + miles. when i accelerate at low speeds, i hear a rattle. it almost sounds like a diesel pick- up accelerating. any thoughts?
Had the same issue, had someone look and it seems the noise was caused by heat shield being loose covering exhaust system. Have that checked out.

Classic sound of pinking !
Possible dodgy fuel ?
Check for possible air leak.
Good Luck !
