2 things to look at here; does the engines have any issues (i.e. misfire, low power)? Have you looked closely at the drive shaft u joints for excessive play? Does this die down at cruise say, 60 mph?

SOURCE: losing coolant from pipes above rear axle on kia

It sounds like a leak in the water jacket of your motor, it could be just a head gasket if you're lucky. Also check for a leak in the coolant pipes them selves usualy at the connections.

SOURCE: heat shield rattles

I wouldn't recommend removing it, as it's there to protect the area from the high heat of the cat. I've had the same rattle problem, and a piece of a coat hanger through a couple of holes drilled through the shield, then tightly attached solved the problem.

SOURCE: need to replace catalytic converter heat shield

I just took mine off to keep it from rattling, and bought a heat resistant header tape and placed the tape right over the Catalytic Converter on the body it self. Good luck and keep me posted if you have any more questions.

before you go changing out the catalytic converter realize that the engine light comes on with only a few percent of the catalytic converter plugged - so before you change it, clan out the engine combustion chamber. i did this on my ford Taurus and with a $5 can of carb cleaner, it solved the problem

I have a 1996 Ford Taurus GL, and the temperature gauge fluctuates up and down and i replaced the water pump replaced and all that other stuff, and than the check engine light is on and I have disconnected...


P0420 and P0430 are catalytic converter codes indicating that the converter isn't working properly. Temp gauge fluctuating can be caused by a bad thermostat, bad temp sensor, bad wiring harness to the sensor. Also check for air in the cooling system. Read the post below for more information on the catalytic converter issues.

My daughter has a 02 Ford Taurus and the engine light came on. We were told the problem code was a 420 but they could not diagnose the problem. They turned the light off but soon it came back on. Any...


What was the letter in front of the 0420 (i.e. P or B) if it was a P then the code is for a catalytic effenciency code. this usually caused by a lazy or an O2 sensor that is going out, or the catalytic converter itself is going out. The only way to really find the problem is to hook it up to a diagnostic code reader and monitor the O2 sensors for their flucuations and see if one is not lazy or not reading at all, if the sensors are flucuating then i would lean towards a catalytic converter. Hope this helps you out.
