WIERD SOUND

Ok so i was at the muffler shop getting my muffler adjusted and they adjusted it. When i left i noticed a really wierd like loose metal to metal/ rattling sound coming from what it sounds like the bottom of the car. I dont think its suspension because it does it on flat ground when i sllllooowwwllly let go of the break or if im idling sometimes. It sounds like there is something in my exhaust piping to be honest but im not sure. I have a knock sensor malfunction code but it doesnt sound like "knocking" . Any ideas?

Re: WIERD SOUND

Your exhaust may be rattling against the heat shields beneath the car - common issue. That or your converter heat shield came loose.

Check your heat shields... I see them rattle ALL the time, on all different cars. Especially since you just had someone tugging at your exhaust. Its a pretty easy fix. Most of the time you just rip whats left of the rotted tin shield right off and throw it in the garbage. If its a shield that is mounted to the body you can just bend it up and away so its not touching.

The easiest fix is to (since you had a shop do it) bring it right back to the shop that worked on it and complain to them that you have had a rattle that was never there since they messed with it. That way it is a comeback for them and they have to diagnose and fix it for free.
