Question about Cars & Trucks
There is a rattle/knocking which appears to be coming from under the engine. Sounds like something is loose. I was wondering, because it is an all wheel drive, could it be all the extra stuff thats under there??? Its quite noticeable. Cheers Mandy

Sounds like your intermediate steering shaft. Its the slip shaft that runs thru the firewall. They have a slip-stick condition that makes a horrible rattle that you can feel in the wheel. Its a pretty easy repair. Just make sure the steering wheel dosen't spin while you are changing it.

I had the same problem! I crawled underneath the car and discovered that a heat shield on the exhaust header pipe was corroded and rattling against the exhaust pipe. (Before the muffler)
I removed the portion and clamps and solved the problem. Give it a try.

it could be a universal joint and not the trans at all.Put your jeep in park and get under it and check for play at each end of the shaft(try turning it by hand counterclockwise and clockwise then try moving it up and down and side to side) If there is any play at all you, need universal joints. Your jeep may also have a hanger bearing.....Check it for play as well
I hope this helps! Keep me posted.

I have had both of these situations happen to me and they are completely unrelated.
The Rattle: If you have the factory wheels with the olds center caps, take them off. My husband tightened every screw on the car until he took the center caps off my wheels, and lo and behold, NO MORE RATTLE.
The Hard Starting: If you notice it starts hard and the RPMs are high, your throttle cable is sticking. I have this exact same problem with my 99 Intrigue GLS. The only way I can get it to quit is start and restart the car until it quits. Obviously not the best solution, but I would check your cable first before trying anything else.
