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.

Is the heat shield between the tail pipe and gas tank needed?


The heat shield probably is deteriorating. You may be able to bend it away from the fuel tank to eliminate the rattle.

I have a rattling sound which is loud when my 04 corsa 1.2 engine is warm.I had the timing belt changed by vauxhall 6,000 miles ago.Took it in to vauxhall last week as the noise bothers me they did oil and...


Check the engine top heat shield and the undercarriage heat shields. They may be loose and rattling. Give 'em a bump with your hand and see if they rattle. If they do, tighten them.

The techs at Vauxall may have failed to tighten the upper heat shield when they replaced the timing belt.

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.

My Cady has developed a rattling noise under that increases when I accelated


A common cause for the "rattling" noise you've described is a loose heat shield for the catalytic converter. Many times, a weld will break loose leaving you with a hanging heat shield that vibrates and "rattles" while you drive. A trip to the muffler shop should be able to confirm this. By itself, a loose heat shield is not something major.

Another cause could be a loose exhaust hanger that holds the exhaust firmly in place. It too would tend to rattle more as you drive. Either way, it would appear on the surface that your issue is exhaust related. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

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.

Rattling of catalytic converter heat shield


If it is the heat shield , any muffler shop can put a couple of welds on it. Could also be that the cat converter is destroyed inside with pieces of it ratling around. In that cast a new cat is the only answer.
