Customer Question
2004 fx 35, 109K...

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.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Not sure what else

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

Does it rattle all the time or just when accelerating?

It rattles at odd times.. some when accelerating, but sometimes when not accelerating
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am out of time - it's been three hours and not making progress.
I do not want to be charged for this
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

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

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
