Rattle and shake from front to rear of VW


The problem you describe is coming from your suspension .if your having fuel problems and your car is puttering or surging this will cause bad suspension to sound very noisy and make a lot of different shake and rattles

When I push on the gas there is a rattling sound, when I let go of the gas the sound is gone. What does this mean????


it can be a number of things
is the car running ok minus the rattle
is the check engine light on
if your answers are yes then no
its probably just something loose like a heat shield
next time you drive try to locate where the sound is coming from
like driver side front or driver side back
then shake and wiggle everything in that area.
I think you ll find out its something very simple

When I drive over a bump I'm the toad a immideately hear a rattling noise come from the rear of the car??????


Look under your car for a sway bar. The ends of this bar are held by 1 bolt on each side along with plastic bushings. The swaybar should be visible hanging straight across the rear differential cover. They are subject to rust and breakage, and aftermarket parts are available. They may be also called "Swaybar links".

Check for noise from your rear seatbelts. Sometimes the ends get pushed under the seat and they rattle when the car shakes. Also check the spare tire. The jack on your spare tire can be touching the rim and will rattle. Sometimes the jacks on Crown Vics and its sister, the Grand Marquis are mounted separately behind the carpet on the passengers' quarterpanel. They are held by a twist screw and it can back off over time.

I hope my solutions help you find your problem. Thanks for using Fixya.

Rattling sound from the exhaust


The metal shielding around your catalytic converter could be rattling or the rubber donut that holds the rear tailpipe could be bad. When your car is cold shake your tailpipe and see if you can reproduce the noise. If you can your tailpipe donut is likely bad. Three dollars at any auto parts store. If it does rattle when you shake your tailpipe then the heat shield for your convert could be loose. You need to tighten it up another piece of metal between it and the converter to keep it from rattling. If you hear the rattle when you go over bumps too then your exhuast is probably, loose. Crawl under there and stake shaking things, I am sure you'll find the problem

Why does my chevy blazer driver side window shakes so bad when I hit a bump


is this rolled up or down?
Normally the guide tracks have a liner that holds the glass very securely.
If the window rattles when it is rolled down then I would be suspicious that a healthy sized chunk of the liner has broken off of both sides. OR something else is loose in the door perhaps bumping the glass or the liner or perhaps a supporting screw for the track has come loose.
The only way to know for sure is to pull the door panel off and give it a good inspection. Wriggle it as best you can. Nothing should really be loose in there when it comes to window regulators etc.

1998 Villager has rattles that seem to come from underneath the van as though something is loose and bumping. Can't find anything loose.


sometimes the exhaust hangers stretch and allow the exhaust system to bounce around over bumps. check to see if you can move the tailpipe and muffler around

Clunk noise from front passenger side when


That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen

Klunk noise when crossing abrupt road bumps. Replaced shocks; no help. Have check all suspension hinge joints for wear on rubber blocks or loose bolts - nothing loose or broken there.


i think you should look at your tie rodds or more then likly its you rcv joint know to test if it;s that walk to the wheel (make sure the is straight) and give it a good kick if you hear that noise then you need cv joints hope this helps

Terrible rear end rattle


It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.

Rattling noise in rear


could be coming from 3 spots
1 engine mounts = mounts go bad try shaking the motor when its cold to see if you can hear it
2 brakes = sometimes brake hardware can come loose or rust away mo so in brake drums in the back
3 exhaust shield = there is a thin shield around parts of the exhaust while it cold shake the tail pipe to see if you hear it
