Look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over.
Good luck

There is not much to come loose there because the suspension bolts are typically torqued tightly. Does this rattling only occur when the car is rolling, or will it happen at idle. Assuming it is when rolling, I would recommend having someone drive the car on some bumpy road and run beside the car to get an idea where the sound is coming from. There is just too much insulation in the car to get a good feel for it. Also, do you hear it if the window is down, or just with the window rolled up. I would make sure that your coolant reservoir is held tightly with the 3 screws that hold it on. It is possible that the person who last did your oil change did not reattach those screws (the reservoir has to be removed to get access to the oil filter). Maybe post more information with information about when you hear the rattle, and where it sounds like it is coming from. I have often found issues running beside a car. If it is a constant clicking sound, then it may be a failing CV joint.

Hard to say without hearing it but check front stabiliser "d" bushes for wear & check all subframe bolts are tight. Does the noise stop if you press the brake lightly.

What is the rattling and thumping sound coming from my front suspension when I go over bumpy roads on my 2002 ford taurus. I changed the struts.


have you checked the sway bar links? they are a common failure. grab hold of the ends of the sway bar, and try to push up and down - hard. any clunking felt indicates a worn ball and socket joint in the link, and the link will need to be replaced. good luck!
