Possibly the plate that covers your brakes to prevent dirt getting into them .. if that aint it then it could be a heat sheild over ur exaust system

Check for loose heat shields the cover the exhaust. I find this is the source of many rattles. They are made of sheet metal and if they are not clip or tightened down the low vibration frequency when the car is running at slow speed will cause them the hit the exhaust pipe/ front mainfold.

Our 2003 kia spectra has a metalic rattle when you drive over uneven pavement or speed bumps. we ckeck suspension brakes wheel bearings shocks exshaust what is it


The heat shields that are positioned between the exhaust pipe and floorboard or between the exhaust pipe and sensitive electrical components are made of very cheap, thin, tin-like metal. When they rust on one side, one of the tabs comes loose and the whole shield will vibrate especially when accelerating. Since you are getting the noise when you hit a bump, you might check the area where you stow the spare tire (loose tools may be vibrating against the metal). Also the plastic protective pieces behind front bumper sometimes tear and will "flap' against the car and sound like a metallic vibration when you hit a bump especially if you were stuck in snow recently. Look for loose plastic pieces.

In a 1998 4x4 jimmy 4 door I am experiencing a vibration which feels like its in the front end. the only occurs while accelerating, but stops almost instantly after letting off the gas pedal. Vibration...


This could be a loose hub bearing causing the hub to move in and out .When accelerating the weight shift will be less on the front wheels so the hub may be moving in and out during this .Have this checked soon :)

Not a lot to go on here! But, Sounds like this has an auto trans? If it has, get a socket on the front crankshaft pulley nut, turn the engine just a bit back an forth. If you hear a metal to metal 'clunking', then remove the inspection cover at the front bottom of the trans. Now move the flywheel with a screwdriver, you will find that the flex-plate is loose or broken. If its a manual trans, None of this applies! Frankster016
