I have a 09 Nissan sentra with 66,000 miles on it. This rattling noise just started yesterday. It's much worse when I am in drive with my foot on the brake at a light. What do u think it could be, thanks

Wow. Quite a knocking sound. Still tough even with video of it.


IDK: Will this get better or worse if you hold car in Drive or Reverse and go away in Neutral?




I'd be checking motor mounts for this. Possible exhaust pipe touching a body part.


A self test might show excessive motion if you open the hood just still if you can see motor move while shifting forward to reverse best with a helper watching mounts,

Has anyone recently worked on the starter, transmission area?

That sounds like one of the converter bolt could possibly be hitting the inspection cover at the transmission.

Looked under car today found the problem quick. The last 2feet of the muffler broke off. The rattling is the middle part of the muffler not attached. Guess I'm going to the shop today.

OK - That's either fairly easy for a good DIYer or not your job. Two ways you'll find - weld parts in possible or toss whole units for new. IMO no fixes last as long as tossing OE type parts but get some costs to decide if given a choice as front to muffler pipe is possible to be part with the converter and nasty cost wise,
