Rattle (intermittent) in left engine compartment at 30 mph and only when the gas is depressed
Rattle (intermittent) in left engine compartment at 30 mph and only when the gas is depressed
At speeds below and above about 30 mph, the noise goes away. It almost sounds like wind making the vibration, but it only occurs when the gas is depressed, and the car is moving. Dealer can't figure it out.

    How many miles on it, and does turning, while under other conditions you describe make any difference? also when you say left , you do mean drivers side?.................. Never mind........ maybe as globalhelper stated have exhaust heat shields checked , especially the one on the front converter (by radiator) piece between converter and block is the most common.
