Recently I started to hear a noise in the front end of my car mostly center but slightly to the passenger side. The noise happens when the car dips or goes over a bump. Can't hear it at full speed.

Asked by Aug 14, 2014 at 11:47 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Prizm FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When sitting in the passenger seat
you can feel a little rattling under
your feet as well. Any idea what
might be causing it?

Could be a loose exhaust heat sheild. I would look under the car and gently tap different areas with a rubber mallett to see if i could pin point the sound.

Some idiot at Pep Boys replaced the sway bars and stated it was fixed. The noise is still there. When I asked the mechanic, he stated the car is fixed, there's just a noise. What a moron!
