Ok thanks. It sucks because I don't have a jack or anything anymore. Hopefully the dealership will help me out. So do you guys think that rattling could be coming from the heat shield? It sounds like its in the engine bay but could the sound be reflecting off the pipes which makes it seem like its coming from the engine?
