SOURCE: heat shield rattles

I wouldn't recommend removing it, as it's there to protect the area from the high heat of the cat. I've had the same rattle problem, and a piece of a coat hanger through a couple of holes drilled through the shield, then tightly attached solved the problem.

SOURCE: loose heat shield

Most likely it's a heat sheild on the converter, maybe the muffler. 1 on top and 1 on the bottom. The heat sheild is welded to the converter, over time they rust away, around the welds. You can use a large diameter worm gear clamp to keep the heat sheild from rattling. The sheilds are in place so if you drive over grass, the heat from the converter won't ignite the grass.

SOURCE: "2008 nissan rogue problem shifting

It is the battery. It is bad and shorting out. Check the manual for directions to trouble shoot until you replace it. There is a small button that you need to remove next to the shifter, place the key in the hole and hold for about 10 seconds. It is a shift release.

I had the same problem. Fixed!

Rattling noise when I press the gas pedal or when the vehicle is running idle.


Hi,
Likely an exhaust heat shield. When the SUV is cold - after sitting for 4+ hours - crawl under the vehicle and see if any of the shields are loose that cover the exhaust pipes. If they are you can use sheet metal screws screwed into the shield and against the exhaust pipeto 'wedge' the shield so it doesn't move.

My 2005 Nissan Morano S makes a rattling noise when accelerating. More so after the car has been sitting. Less after I driven awhile.Taken it in 3 times and no one is able to diagnose.


Hello Lisa,
Rattles are always a fun thing to chase after. The first thing that comes to mind with a rattle under acceleration would be a heat sheild. Over time, heat shields which protect the under body of the car from exhaust heat come loose. Might want to have an exhaust shop take a look at it for you. I have heard of weak tack welds located on the heat sheilds by the catalytic converter. So you can ask an exhaust shop to take a look.

Although if you are one to get down under the car and a bit dirty check it out on your own. You might be able to check without putting the truck on a jack stands or a lift. Basically you will want to ensure the car is cold. If the car has not sit for a little while, I would not recommend touching the exhaust. YOU WILL get burned. :) Once your sure its cold and want to squeeze under the truck you can follow the exhaust tips all the way up to the catalytic converters. See pic below(number 16 is the heat shield). You will see the tin around them and be able to shake them a bit. If you hear your rattle there is your problem. If not check out the other heat shields.

Exhaust issue


Most likely the heat shield has corroded off and is just sitting on top of the muffler or Catalytic converter. Regardless you can remove the shield and still run the the Xterra without any problems, the OEM muffler came with a heat shield as to the after market mufflers don't have one. The Catalytic converter also has a shield and you can remove it also as the Xterra has a heat shield on the floor board it self. Most exhaust shop if honest will tell you to just remove the rattling shield if there is no exhaust leaks or no Check engine light on that monitor's the Catalytic converter's performance.
A muffler shop if shady may advise you to replace the Catalytic converter and that can go for up to and beyond $400.00, so as long as there is no leaks or check engine light on. Go right ahead and remove the rattling shield.
Thank you for using Fixya

Rattling heat shield


Get a large hose clamp from your local parts house. These are about 10 around and you can install it easily and viola - the noise is gone.

Exhaust pipe rattles when car idles. Had muffler


Check the heat shield on the Catalytic Converter, after a few years they start to rust off and rattle. Crawl under the Pathfinder and bang along the Converter and muffler area and see where it's coming from.   Good chances are, it's from the heat shield since you already had everything changed from the Cat back.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Nissan altima


timing belt is the only one that would make it rattle because its pre detonation which is timing is too fast. If there wasn't any other codes.
If it was just a rattle it would do it all the time

A rattling noise


I had rattling noises as well (over bumps and when I reved the engine) and it turned out to be the heat shields under the car. I took out 2 heat shields covering the two cats on both sides AND two rusted out dangling rings hanging from the exhaust coupler (have NO clue what they were for)..This has TOTALLY gotten rid of the rattling noise. Good luck!
