Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

1 Answer

There is an odd rattle that I hear while driving 1997 sable it sound like its almost directly beneath the center of the console or underneath just behind the drivers seat. Hubby thought it was something in the trunk or the spare tire was loose in it's storage compartment in the trunk, but it's not. Haven't been able to find any thing loose by crawling under and feeling for anything either. It occurs when driving over bumps- even small smooth ones! Also on some left turns, especially sharp lefts.

Likely Exhaust, kneel down under the door, if it sounds like it's coming from the center of underneath the car it could be a broken Catalytic Converter. Other than that someone that knows something about cars is going to have to chase it down for you. This is just not enough information.
