Question about 1996 Saturn SL
On a car that old often the heat shield has come loose. When the exhaust is not hot look underneath the car and see if there is some loose aluminum looking sheet looking stuff hanging above the exhaust pipe and converter. If so you can remove it and replace it, tighten it back in with small sheet metal screws or just toss it which is what I did on 4 or 5 Saturns. A shop most likely will not remove it for you as it may create a hazard. It tears out quite easily. If the heat shield is not the culprit, then take a look at the rear muffler mount, another frequent Saturn noise maker. When this goes the muffler rattles and it can cause the pipe further back in the system to rattle.
