Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** you are hearing a rattling sound from under the driver's seat the problem will most certainly be a bad catalytic converter. It is very common for one of the two converters to break apart inside and start to rattle. You should correct the oil level in the motor but your problem will be a bad catalytic converter.
