After a few minutes from starting, car has intermittent noise that sounds like it's coming from back of car.

Asked by Oct 12, 2013 at 02:59 PM about the Honda Civic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Within 5 minutes of starting car, there is a periodic low sounding noise almost like metal rubbing against metal.  It lasts a couple of seconds and stops.  Then it starts again in a few minutes.  At first I thought it was stuff in my trunk, but it's not.

Catalytic Converters need to be replaced or maybe even the muffler. Id bet on the Cats(catalytic converters)
