The cat converter has started making a vibrating noise do i hsve to replace


A vibrating or rattling sound coming from around the area of your catalytic converter is much more likely to be a problem with the heat shield that wraps around the top of the converter to keep it from damaging the floor of your car. A noisy, rattling heat shield is annoying, but it can be ignored without damaging the car.

A catalytic converter that is failing is likely to make a "whooshing" sound like a muffler with a hole in it. Or, if your cat suddenly plugs up because the inside has come loose, your car will suddenly have no power and you'll have exhaust gas trying to escape from every gasket in the exhaust system. It's a very distinctive (and expensive) sound, compared to a loose heat shield.

Some people simply remove their noisy heat shields. Others pay a welder a few dollars to tack it back into place. It's a simple problem to diagnose, especially if you can put the car on a lift and get underneath it to wiggle parts until you identify the loose section(s).

I am hearing a rattling sound like a loose piece of metal when I accelerate


Hello, Most common cause of rattling noise is a loose heat shield on the catalytic converter. It's all right to drive in this condition but if the noise becomes too bothersome, you can either remove it or bring it to a muffler shop and see if they will spot weld it or secure it another way. Don't let them try to sell you another catalytic converter.

Thanks

Exhaust issue


Most likely the heat shield has corroded off and is just sitting on top of the muffler or Catalytic converter. Regardless you can remove the shield and still run the the Xterra without any problems, the OEM muffler came with a heat shield as to the after market mufflers don't have one. The Catalytic converter also has a shield and you can remove it also as the Xterra has a heat shield on the floor board it self. Most exhaust shop if honest will tell you to just remove the rattling shield if there is no exhaust leaks or no Check engine light on that monitor's the Catalytic converter's performance.
A muffler shop if shady may advise you to replace the Catalytic converter and that can go for up to and beyond $400.00, so as long as there is no leaks or check engine light on. Go right ahead and remove the rattling shield.
Thank you for using Fixya

Need to replace catalytic converter heat shield - can I do this without getting a whole new catalytic converter - 2002 XL7


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.

98 Ford Explorer engine/exhaust noise


When catalytic converters go bad, the porcelain matrix inside comes loose and is noisy.
But you can just unbolt it, break up the loose chunks, pour out the pieces, and it will run better than ever.
If you don't pass the next emissions test, then replace it.

But it could just be the heat shield rattling instead.
Take the shield off first, to see if it goes away.

Rattling of catalytic converter heat shield


If it is the heat shield , any muffler shop can put a couple of welds on it. Could also be that the cat converter is destroyed inside with pieces of it ratling around. In that cast a new cat is the only answer.

Rattling noise during engine start up.. 2005 mitz galant 2.4l


You probably have a bad plug wire or cracked cap/roter , this can be seen at night in full darkness to pinpoint it. or you can buy a mechanics stethoscope (about 15.00 or less) and listen for it.
