Hey I think I finally found the issue with that long annoyed rattle. The mechanic at Tires Plus was nice enough to check and it's the imfamous 3rd cat with something loose inside. So I went to the Stealership since the car's still under the 8/80 thing. They want $100 for a diagnostic check but don't know for all they do is scratch their a$$ and tell me nothings wrong. But I guess it's for that free replacement. :rolleyes2:

I'll probably find an exhaust shop to see if they replace cats under emissions warranty. I do know they won't remove cats or they get a $10k fine. Another option is find a member here to just remove it with a new pipe in place.

All I want is to get rid of that rattling noise so she can run better, not gain 50hp B)

They cannot tell if the 3rd cat is good or bad by any diagnostic check. They have to take the Y pipe loose and actually look in the cat.

If you have a warranty, find a dealer that has a clue what they are doing...I'm sure there are plenty of Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealers in south Florida...surely 1 is halfway decent.
