my car is making terrible noises

so just this week i noticed that when my engine was cold there was a terrible rattling coming from underneath my car. when it heats up its fine though. i thought it was the trans, (mines auto) because it seemed like it was only doing it while i was in drive, and going slowly, but it seems to be doing it if i rev in neutral now as well. i have valve tap and i need to adjust the valves, and i dont think thats it, because it sounds like its underneath. it bascially just sounds like a terrible rattle, usually only if im giving it light to moderate gas, and usually in 1st and 2nd gear.

Mine has the same problem and I went to a Honda specialist and he told me I needed a tune up. I'm going on Tuesday so I hit you up if that fixed the problem.

Re: my car is making terrible noises

its likely not your tranny. when the car is in drive it puts more strain on the motor, especially with the brakes. the motor is gonna twist a little, and hence, anything attached to it, like an exhaust manifold. i'm putting money on a heat shield too.

if it was your tranny it would do it all the time in drive

Re: my car is making terrible noises

alright. i just got headers put on so the manifold heat shield is gone, but it could be one somewhere else. it just sounds real bad. and if its a heat shield, why would it only do it in certain gears when my engine is cold?
