    Default Help.......

    I have a terrible rattle/grinding noise coming from under my jeep. I broke out the haynes repair manual and have checked the trans and transfer case as well as replaced all the u joints in the drive line. The noise is the worst while accelerating and dies off when I get off the throttle. The transmission shifts firm and the clutch is tight. Anyone have any ideas or should I break down and take it to a shop?

    Did you give the catalytic converter a good once over? Perhaps, disconnect it give a gentle shake and see if it sounds like it's full of scrap metal.

    On a scale of 1-10, 10 being undrivable.

    Second that notion, as you checked the other possible culprits.

    Get the rubber mallet out and starting tapping the exhaust from the cat back. If anything is loose (pieces from the cat) in the exhaust, you should be able to hear it while doing this.

    I agree with the above. Although you might want to check the front drive shafts slip joint(thats the issue with my Jeep). Odds are it is an exhaust issue.

    I think that rattling is one of those things you gotta be there to hear. I have so much shit rattle it's unreal . I hope it's not your diffs, but if it's bad when you accelerate and eases up when you let off, it could be. When/what were you doing the last time you were in them?
