Keeping this in consideration, can you drive with a rattling exhaust?
A loose bracket, rubber hanger or connector, or one that is badly corroded, can allow a muffler to rattle as the exhaust pipe bangs against another part of your vehicle when you accelerate or drive on bumpy roads, or even when you first start the car and it's stationary and idling.
Secondly, how much does it cost to fix a rattling exhaust? If you can hear a kind of rattling sound as you drive along, this usually means that a bracket holding part of the exhaust system in place has become loose and is no longer holding things in place properly. When caught early, this issue is pretty straight-forward and inexpensive to amend – around $40.
Furthermore, is a rattling exhaust dangerous?
A chugging noise could mean a blockage in the exhaust system. If you hear rattling under the car it could mean that the exhaust system has become misaligned. If you can hear a loud metallic vibration, it usually means that something is touching the exhaust pipe or that a clamp, support bracket or mounting is loose.
When I press on the gas I hear a rattling noise?
Detonation, Pre-ignition (Pinging) Noise Most people call this a pinging or rattling sound. This noise is caused by an air/fuel mixture in the engine cylinder being ignited prematurely by the heat of compression as the piston is moving up on the compression stroke.
