Make sure you have your flywhel/torque converter bolts tight , if they are not you will get a rattle, also make sure you got all the transmission blots tight as well, as this will cause a rattle noise as well.

Ford f250 1989 diesel c6 transmission Loud unregular noise, not driving, running idle, shift and drive normal. Sounds like parts loose in gearbox.

See if it the torque converter making the noise. Ford had these converters take would make like a rattle/clicking noise. Not sure if they went back that far though. The noise doesn't hurt anything. Every thing still works fine. It was just annoying.

Ford mustang was making a whine/ rattling noise while doing 20-60 mph then after driving 20 minutes she died at a stop sign, would start up fine in park, but died when we tried to shift,what is wrong

Automatic or stick ?
If its an automatic, it could be something in the torque converter or transmission. The torque converter clutch could be stuck.

Rattle noise under driver's side hood 2012 Subaru Forester

Could be the catalytic converter heat shields, or the exhaust heat shields bolted to the underbody. Might also be the catalytic converter internal converter honeycomb broken loose. Unusual, but can occur if excess unburned fuel is being passed to the converter. High fuel consumption is another clue.

You can stall test your torque converter ...Do this but follow correctly. put on parking brake..on the asphalt,,,, block all four wheels...push the gas to the floor for just 2 seconds...down one, two lift off gas pedal quickly..
when your doing this WATCH your RPMs they should reach to around 2200-2400 between the 2-4 rpm if not the Torque Converter is toast!!!! If your car passes the STAll test then when you tranny was put back on one of the fly wheel covers are rubbing....!!!.

My 2002 buick rendezvous makes like a rattleing noise when driving. When your turning the noise will go away. What could be the problem. Heres a link where you can hear the noise it makes. You got to...

Really the sound is so bad, but I dont worried about new converter; the problem would be in the front end; some adjustments may be pending, if more relaxed than we should the belt, will also be necessary to revise it. Remember that two days ago have returned recently to move the vehicle and there are always additional adjustments.

Trans makes rattleing noise when its in any gear rev. and drive ,it quits whe put back in park or neu

It sounds like the trany is on it's way out. It might be the torque converter. At any rate the trany will probably have to come out. Does the trany seem to work good, shifts good, no slipping? There is another posibility it could be a loose heat shield on the exhaust pipe rattling. Have some one you can trust check it out.
