    Do you think it might be in the exhaust system?? This is the most likely source based on years of experience.

It could very well be! Now that you mention it, the exhaust does sound louder when the engine is cold. Could that be a leak or something? But, it does get quieter after it warms up. Thanks for the response!

Heat shield rattling noise engine


Go to a a large hardware store and buy 2 band clamps that will fit around the heat shields and clamp them tight. This is the manufacturers approved fix for heat shield rattle. The fix sure beats the $1000.00 for a new catalytic converter assembly. I have done this fix dozens of times over the years of my car repair career.

Saturn Ion running loud and rough


Check for other loose heat shields.
The shield you removed would allow more noise to enter the cabin too.

Rattling noise sportage 2008


Sorry for the late reply but, no, it is not related to a loose heat shield. It is a louder rattling sound more like a loose bearing vibrating inside either the transmission or the clutch assembly. Only between 1600 and 1900 rpm. and it is not present under ou over these rpm. The rattle desappear when I lock the 4X4. Dealer is out of solution!!
