2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt rattles over bumps at low speeds

Can be heard while driving from driver's side most clearly; mechanics cannot find the rattle with a shake down; could it be strut bushings?

    the rattle is over bumps at speeds of 25-30 mph; sounds like it is around driver's side under hood area; perhaps near or below steering; why would that be rear axle? Two shake downs on a lift did not produce the sound.

Check for a cracked engine mount. I had to replace mine about six weeks ago.

You could have bad mounting bushings for the struts or it could be other bushings in the rear axle tracking arms. in order to find out you have to jack the vehicle up.(use jack stands to support the vehicle for safety) check all the struts and shocks and any componant that has to do with keeping the wheels on the ground . that is what the strut/shock is for. check the coils spring to make sure they are not loose. the coils spring keeps the body from bottomning out... hope this helps..........please rate.

Manual Transmission, wont go into reverse unless the car is off


I've never heard of such a thing in my 40 plus years of driving standard shift vehicles! I suggest that you take it to a reputable mechanic after you check online for 'call back' problems with your model, and after you've spoken to the Mitsubishi dealership mechanics.

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Rear Rattle


If it's making a clunk noise when hitting bumps, check the mounting plates and bushings that hold the rear end to the frame. GM made these plates out of aluminum and the bolts that go through the plate and the bushings rot out and the rear end slams against the frame.

Rattling noise over bumps at low speeds


it could be the rail for the seat, try adjusting its layer and tighten it by putting double bushes on the nut and under the rail itself, I have a range rover had similar problem and did it with my grandpa's help, and voila!
