Heat shield rattling noise engine

Go to a a large hardware store and buy 2 band clamps that will fit around the heat shields and clamp them tight. This is the manufacturers approved fix for heat shield rattle. The fix sure beats the $1000.00 for a new catalytic converter assembly. I have done this fix dozens of times over the years of my car repair career.

Rattling underneath when running

Jack up and put jack stands for safety or drive up ramps. Start engine and find whats rattling. You can use the back side of a hammer and hold against exhaust shield to see if the rattle stops when you put it against it. If it is a shield you can get large dryer clamps and put them together and go around shield and tighten, that will stop rattle without replacing shield. Make sure you let exhaust cool before you try and clamp.

Rattling noise underneath the vehicle when on.

Usually this is caused by the exhaust, and most common is the heat shield around the catalytic converter. Sometimes these can be spot welded, by I have fixed a few by putting together a few large stainless hose clamps and placing all the way around the unit and tighten them up. Sometimes the rattle is internal, and replacement is the only option. If so, rather than getting a very expensive stock replacement, you can by a universal easy flow hot rod type for about $100, plus installation.

03 Mountaineer AWD Premier V8 rattling noise under vehicle

If its the heat shield against the underside.its install with fender style aluminum rivets( if you do it be very careful not to drill into a harness) If its the heat shield around the CAT then you should replace the cat. You can try to repair it with a pair of long hose clamps but I don't advise removing it. In the wrong environment the heat could cause a grass fire. or ignite trash that may get caught or blown underneath. Good luck.
