HelloCustomer

An intermitten noise is always hard to locate.I have seen an exhaust gasket at the engine manifold leak & cause this.You might also switch brands of fuel you are using & see if this makes a difference.Here is some info from GM that pertains to a rattle.

Reply to John's Post: It is not an exhaust gasket leak. I have used different brands of fuel and it doesn't make any difference. Where is the information from Gm that pertains to a rattle? Also, could there be an electronic component that could cause the noise? Thanks.
