Front wheel drive cars have CV joints sounds like yours need replacing. Does it do it when you turn? Turn wheel all the way left an then right do you still hear it? If so joints are bad. May also be wheel bearing but my guess is CV joints

Testimonial: "No it does not actually I was thinking it could be the cv joints as well. Thought those made more of a grind instead of a rattle though, I am still learning thanks for the feed back"

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

Front end noise


A few possibilities with front end noise. Possible worn shock bushings or suspension bushings. As a car accelerates or slows down, the front suspension raises or lowers, thus causing movement of front end components.

When my car is in park i can hear a rattling sound on my drivers side it sounds like it is almost underneath me


If you look under your car you will see a tin heat shield in between the exhaust pipe and the floor of car. These are known to rot loose and cause all kinds of noises. This is located right where you described the noise. Sometimes if this piece is still entact, you can just bend it a bit and the noise will stop, but I would usually just rip them off and leave it off. Hope this helps you

Sounds kind of like a crunching sound? right front end in drive, left front end in reverse, has all new frame bushings, new struts with springs and bearing plate, new brakes, front end shop sees nothing...


Seems like the noise is related to torque reaction from the engine/power unit that can move quite a lot under acceleration/deceleration especially if an engine mount is soft or broken.

Perhaps the exhaust or similar is badly positioned and is too close to the bodywork.

Searching for a noise that can't be duplicated on a workshop hoist needs imagination and some carefully placed brute force...

Rattling Coming from Engine At low RPM (stopped) and when accl.


If this sounds like a tin can rattle it is likely a loose heat shield on top of the catalytic converter. They come loose after time and corrosion take their toll.

Check the oil first, if it is low it will cause a host of noises in the engine.

It sounds like that may be the problem you have
