i have a 94 plymouth acclaim, recently I started hearing a rattling
noise from under the car, it has gotten worse and the only thing that
seems to be in the area of the rattling is the converter, i get close
to the converter and the noise seems to get louder. is this common, a
rattling noise and if so what causes it and what should be done to
correct it. also, can a bad converter cause the car to loose power and
hesitate on the freeway?
Clunking= fused, cracked stuff in converter.
lose power can be converter for sure. Had this exact scenario in my 84 Vette
several years ago. loss of power, rattling from converter, forst thought it
was in the torque converter.
Cost a few hundred to fix.
