Hi..
this is because the engine has been started from the cold condition. due to the sudden temperature rise the expansion of parts takes place which makes the rattle noice.

Rattling noise coming from my 2005 mazda 6's engine. it only happens when i drive slowly such as going through kfc drive through


Good evening.
If this is a tinny type of rattle and it only happens at certain RPM's I would look for a loose heat shield over the exhaust pipes. Have someone apply the throttle until the rattles begins and listen under the car with a long screwdriver or a yardstick. Use the screwdriver to push on the various shields surrounding the manifold and pipes until the rattle stops. then use a hose clamp or two to tighten them up.
Also I see a lot of catalytic converters that become loose internally and rattle around inside it.
The only cure for that is to replace the converter.
If this rattle is an internal engine noise you should have an experienced mechanics ears give you an opinion.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you checked the catalytic converter (also reffered to as simply a Cat by mecanics)? It's the first big canister you encounter on the exhaust line right after the manifold and before the resonator and/or muffler. After a while rust and time can cause either the casing itself to come loose and rattle, or the insides themselves break up and rattle around the cat. And being where it is it often resonates sound around the engine compartment, making it seem the sound is coming from elsewhere than it actually is. And while your at it don't forget to check the flex pipe usually connected to the cat also (some models do not have a flex pipe though). If all that is fine, then the other things to check would be the accessory brackets, wire holders and the like. With vibration and time, sometimes they loosen up and start to rattle. Still nothing? check the suspension parts for anything loose (IE. sway bar links, coils springs, tie-rod, suspension tables). Other than that there isn't much in there that can rattle. If you look at how an engine is built, you'll see that there isn't much inside that can rattle around without causing the engine to fail altogether. I'm not saying it can't happen though, but it's highly improbable. Hope this helps

Theresa,

Plug in your car and listen for a "sizzle" sound. If you hear this then your block heater works.... if not..... Call Canadian Tire!
