I had a similar problem on my 2007 RX350 and it was from the plastic gas tank protective cover under the SUV. There is a small portion of the cover that extends forward beside the gas tank, and usually has a rubber piece attached to it to stop it from hitting the floor under the car. The rubber had come of mine so I had to replace the rubber. This stopped it from hitting the bottom of the car at higher speeds. Worth taking a look at?

There is a plastic cover over your gas tank there is a flap on the end which hits the floor board when the wind pass under your car while driving at high speeds to fix the problem just but two short screws to hold the plastic cover in place

On my 2007 rx350, I had a rattling noise which I had a hard time locating. I only heard the noise at around 40 MPH and higher. There are plastic protective shields under the car which for one reason or another become loose and rattle. I went to the dealership, they told me this was not an uncommon problem and that the newer models had redesigned shields to prevent this from happening. If the car is still under warranty, just have them replace it.

Have you looked under the car? Put the car on a lift or jack it up and support the car with jackstands, Are you sure it's not coming from the front brake pads? They can make a rattling sound if not secure inside the brake calipers.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.

sounds kinda silly, but any coins etc in the cup holders up front?? They rattle like crazy.

If its behind the cd / radio this item is easy to remove yourself. Start at the bottom from cup holder section, snap itout on the front and the sides are simple screws and plugs.

Did it myself to take coins out of the CD player that my 2yr old inserted??!! DOH

Good luck
