Question about 2009 Toyota Matrix

Toyota matrix, rattles underneath when almost stopped or just starting

It recently started rattling underneath when starting up or coming to a stop. It sounds like a loose piece of metal. It seems to be worse when it is cold. It doesn't affect the car when driving at any speed higher than 5km/hour.

SOURCE: My Toyota Mr2 Spyder is rattling

Pound on the catalytic converter, you will probably find your rattle inside, if so, you will need a new one, also check for any loose clamps or rings that have come loose, just pound on your exhaust with the side of your fist, you should find your rattle, or sometimes the heat sheilds above the exhaust come loose.

SOURCE: Rattle/Vibration from front of vehicle when idling at stop

Hi and welcome to FixYa. Please try this:
GO out to the car, and lift up on the hood. Does it raise a bit and rattle? If so;
Open the hood, and look at the perimeter of the front radiator support. You will see 2 small rubber thingys, that look like that they are screwed onto the metal that is holding the radiator. Unscrew them a little, and close the hood. Pull up on the hood and see if the rattle goes away. If not, repeat unscrewing the rubber things until the lift disappears.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.

SOURCE: a rattling noise from the engine bay

Check the heat shields on the exhaust system. They get loose from the extreme heat fluctuations work loose and rattle. Especially the one between the engine and firewall where the 02 sensor screws in. It probably rattles less after warm up because heat causes expansion which makes it tighter. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my toyota corolla nze 2002 has a rattling sound in the gear box

SInce any noise from within the engine/gear box cannot be taken lightly, it is important that you will need a good look from a service shop. If you have been carrying out the scheduled service in accordance with Toyota timings, there will not be an issue. You could check out if the noise is external,otherwise get you car to the authorised Toyota centre for an estimate. This will be better than trying out/ stipping and then waiting for spares. I hope my advise is helpful. good day

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.
