Check the heat shield above the cat. They rust at the anchor points and break loose causing the rattle you describe.

If the Catalytic converter is gone in a Honda Crv 2003 model does the vehicle blow smoke from exhaust and have a louder sound from exhaust when over 3000 revs?


Its possible the catalytic converter is stopped up, or the muffler.
A mechanic would disconnect the cat and check for blockage.

Why is my 1987 300e Mercedes making a loud clanging noise at start up?


I would think the honeycomb ceramic "Brick" inside the Catalytic Converter has broken up, makes a terrible rattling when this happens.

MY CAR WONT GO OVER 10 MPH. IT HAS A SLOW WHIN NOISE UNDER THE TRUCK WHEN I DRIVE IT ALSO. I AM THINKING THAT THIS MAY BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER.


That is a very good possibility. However, if this is the problem, you also need to find out WHY the catalytic converter is clogged. Otherwise you will only destroy a new converter.

What would cause 99 alero 4 cyl. to make a rattleing sound when idle.. but not when its running at a high rpm.. sounds like its coming from the passenger side of the motor, sounds like something is...


noises are tough, but try getting under the car when the engine is cold and it has been sitting for a while and hit (with your fist) the catalytic converter-the substrate in cats break up and cause rattles that are especially noticable when the vehicle is running at low speeds.

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
