It could be something as simple as a broken exhaust hanger, take a look underneath, move the muffler and see if you hear it. I could also be a heat shield that has come loose.

Ok if it is rear wheel drive. It is most likely the pinion gear. But also could be a bad u joint! The pinion I would take to train pro! Jack up the car and make secure on jack stands, then lightly apply the jack for added support. Start the car and put in gear at an idol use a piece of garden hose placing it on the differential and to your ear. Should be able to hear were the noise is coming from. My opinion take it for what it is! good luck and be careful.

Trying to find two noises in my 3ltr petrol 407 coupe, cold start rattle and rattle under acceleration especially from a slightly higher gear before kick down occurs. note diagnostics show anything.


Check the exhaust system from front to rear for torn or warn hangers, welds broken on any shields. That is if the noise is a metal noise or rattle. Please describe your noise if this doesn't match.

What causes a rattling noise in my engine when i hit the accelerator?


"Rattling" is normally due to one of two things:
  1. On heavy acceleration, rattling is usually due to low octane fuel.
  2. If at all times, it can be due to low oil pressure.

    Rattling can also occur if the engine timing is way out specs. This will normally be accompanied by a substantial loss of power on acceleration.

Harsh grinding noise while in gear and car won't drive!


Had the exact same thing in my 93 and it was the CV Axles - they have a C clip that hold them in place - sometimes the C clip and fail; sometimes you simply have to replace the CV Axles - much cheaper then a tranny; a good suspension shop should be able to diagnos w/o it costing you an arm and a leg.
