Rattling!

Asked by Aug 26, 2009 at 06:50 PM about the 2002 Kia Spectra LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I drive a 2002 Spectra LS, 1.8L Automatic. It's rattled since I got it in september '08, and it's most noticeable around 2,300 to 2,700 rpm, no matter what gear I'm in or how hard I'm accelerating. A couple of people agree with me that it sounds like a loose heat shield, and I'm wondering if anyone's had the same issue, and what it was, so I'm not underthe car for hours looking for the culprit.
