Question about 2009 Volvo S60
I get a major rattle when I go at a normal speed. It stops or slows down when I coast, or when I accellerate. Someone told me it is the heat shield where the Manifold connects to the exhaust - and that it would need to be welded. Does this information sound correct? - the car still runs great 90k miles but the rattle is driving me mad.
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.

Can you move it (heat shield) backwards and forwards against the manifold? If its that noisy you should be able to locate the rattle by touch?Cant be inside the engine, gear box,transmission or suspension.

you can also check if your wheel alingment is out,this can cause the same noise,if when you are driving on a straight road the steering look off center then have your alignment check.if you recently did the front struts that can cause the alignment to go out

SOURCE: Exhaust manifold gaskets
the ticking noise when cold is an exhaust leak.If it is the exhaust manifold gaskets,depending on the vehicle they can be very difficult to replace.in some cases you must remove many other parts even to see the manifolds.make sure when manifolds are off that they are checked for warpage,this is a simple test needing only a straight edge and feeler gague.ask your tech if he can see any broken manifold studs/bolts and if quote covers time for removing broken manifold studs/bolts,because if any are broken,this can take quite some time to extract the broken studs/bolts.
