2005 Monte Carlo Rattles

When I step on the gas there is a rattling, scratching noise. Is it the muffler? Does it need tightening or something? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Bree

    Thanks, I'll try that! I'm in NY, so I'm sure they'll try to charge me more, (especially since I'm a female) so I'll make sure now! Thanks so much! I'll be posting one more question, also......

It is most likely one of the heat shields on the exhaust (pipe,muffler, catalytic convertor) has a broken spot weld, take it to a muffler shop, many times they don't even charge to fix the issue, if they do it will be less than $20.00

A damaged or defective HARMONIC BALANCER is a likely culprit, especially if you have recently had engine work done.

My Cady has developed a rattling noise under that increases when I accelated

A common cause for the "rattling" noise you've described is a loose heat shield for the catalytic converter. Many times, a weld will break loose leaving you with a hanging heat shield that vibrates and "rattles" while you drive. A trip to the muffler shop should be able to confirm this. By itself, a loose heat shield is not something major.

Another cause could be a loose exhaust hanger that holds the exhaust firmly in place. It too would tend to rattle more as you drive. Either way, it would appear on the surface that your issue is exhaust related. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

I want to buy an '87 Monte ss - what are common

Look for excessive frame and body mount corrosion, the condition of the transmission fluid and performance and the engine oil and performance of the engine. Pay attention to the electrical connections through out the car and fuse box. Other then that, any other issues should not be to hard to address your self. Good luck and hope the car is what your looking for in a great ride.

Muffler is loud and rattles due to debris and possible hole

either live with it or get out a saw and cut it out and weld in a new exhaust muffler. or you might get the measurements and get one to fit where you cut out the old one from your parts store.. make sure you measure your pipe and get a muffler that will fit over the pipe .. You will need clamps for the muffler also.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry
