Today when I came home from work I started my car and heard a horrific
rattling noise under the engine... It seems the noise is only when the car
is in Park. Could something be wrong with my tranny or is it something
simple? I've never heard this sound before and it has me a bit worried.
Car: 1993 Mercury Topaz GS
Auto 3 Gear Transmission
I recently replaced the starter and did a tune up on the car.
are u sure it is a ratlle???since u just replaced the starter i would look for loose bolts or check the flex plate for cracks the flex plate makes a horrible high pitched grinding noise that i could see being mistaken for a rattle .or look for somethin else that could make an abnormal noise check all your fluids also
check the heatshields above the converter they tend to rot out where they attach to the floor of the car might be the shield on the converter to
