Customer Question

2004 fx 35, 109K ***** *****, well maintained. Had a problem with heat shield rattle but had it cut off to stop it. Now a month later hearing different rattle- seeming more from under hood. Seems to be independent of engine RPM, but is present maybe 30% of the time. Can be quiet while giving it gas, then starts up when take foot off. Wondering if it is major or minor issue.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: not sure what else
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Infiniti Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

Does it rattle all the time or just when accelerating?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It rattles at odd times.. some when accelerating, but sometimes when not accelerating

I am out of time - it's been three hours and not making progress.
I do not want to be charged for this

Sorry for the delay, is it a chatter from the engine area under light acceleration?
