When I start my 2006 Pontiac G6 and put it in gear, I hear a rattling noise coming from the front of the car. When I step on the gas pedal the rattling sounds like it's coming from underneath the car.

Is this almost like a metallic buzzing sound?

Find the catalytic converter under the car it should have a shield on it. Use a broomstick with the car running and hold the shield still and have someone give it a little gas. Just move from shield to shield until you find the offending shield.

Don't touch these with your hand as they can get hot fast.

Most parts houses sell a very large hose clamp to go around these shield for about $10, they will know exactly what you are looking for.

When I step on the gas to increase speed there is a strange rattle coming from outside. It stops making the noise until I increase speed again.


check the exhaust pipe at the front of the engine there is a heat shield sometimes rusts at the spot weld and the shield rattles on the pipe
easy repair use a hose clamp open the hose clamp up put the clamp around the pipe reconnect the hose clamp slide it over the heat shield and tighten the clamp up

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds


I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))
