Rattle when at idle in neutral. goes away when you press the clutch, or put the car in gear.
just noticed this, mainly when im sitting in a drive thru because the rattling echoes off of the building. Sometimes when I put my clutch in it goes away, but other times it just rattles and is quite embarrassing because I keep my car in excellent condition. wondering what the heck is going on though and if I need to be concerned or its just a quick fix.
