rattling inside exhaust of 2002 Chevy Silverado

Unread post by tumper » Sun Mar 21, 2010 1:41 pm

I have a 2002 Chevrolet silverado. When I first start it up I have a loud rattle from under the vehicle, from what I have determined it is inside the exhaust pipe near the catalytic converter. Everything is tight down the exhaust line. First of all does anyone have any ideas what this is and two how do I get it out that is short of cutting the exhaust pipe. Oh, one more thing, the Service engine light is on. I'm only guessing here but could it be the oxygen sensor?

Try pounding on the catalytic converter to see is it is rattling inside. If it is, it needs to be replaced. Could possibly also be a shield on top of the muffler or resonator. Noises in the exhaust can travel and be heard in a different spot than the actual rattling part.

just from your description it would sound like you have a coolant leak into cylinder #6 with the engine warm. you might want to take out the #6 spark plug and pressure test your cooling system to a pressure slightly higher than the rating on you radiator cap and see if coolant is leaking into the cylinder.

ok, if you have a misfire on #6 and replacing the plug will make it go away (and the plug is wet) it could be a problem with too much fuel flooding the cylinder. If you say it's wet but it's not gas then the next thought would be that it is coolant. Coolant from a cracked head, a damaged head gasket, bad intake something that will go into cylinder #6. At my shop I would get the engine warmed up to your 210 degrees and pull out the #6 plug and pressure test your cooling system. See if coolant fills up in the cylinder. We have a camera that will go down into the cylinder and we would look to see where it might be coming from.

I wish I could be more helpful but you are talking about something inside the motor. Are you loosing coolant? have you had to add coolant to the system?
