I have previously posted about this rattle, but now I have a video to help describe what I'm hearing. It is a faint rattle...has nothing to do with the car downshifting at the end of the vid :p

Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks guys B)

I was driving up hill (trying to stay in 2nd gear under load), my brother had the door open and the microphone close to the ground.

If an exhaust shield was causing the ruckus, where could I find said shield? I am going to do a brake job tomorrow, and while I have the car jacked-up I plan to search for potential rattle-spots.

I understand it is difficult to hear the rattle, and for that I am sorry. The microphone didn't pick it up as well as I'd hoped (and uploading to youtube reduced the quality). Thanks for viewing!

Warm Regards,
Jordan

hi,
check the catalytic converters, they have heat shield welded to the converter.

had a plymouth that had broken weld, the shield was making a 'tick' 'tick' sound at idle.
drove me crazy until I found it when I did oil change. I tacked it back with my mig.
