Rattling noise in front end

Postby DaDeO [OP] » Feb 13 2011, 5:20pm

I have a 2010 Silverado. There's been some rattling sound coming from the front of the truck. Used to be it would just rattle for a while when I started out cold, but now it's doing it the whole time while driving. Anyway, I just wondered if anyone else had a similar problem so I know what to look for.

You're have to be more specific. Does it sound metalic? When does it do it? While your turning? At High speeds? Over bumps? Etc.
Marine because.

No rattles on my 2010. But, that's what warranties are for!

Are you talking about valve chatter when it's first started?

Nah, just sounds like something loose or whatever. Doesn't matter what speed or what you're doing. Louder on bumps. Just thought maybe somebody else ran into a similar thing. I'll find it! As far as warranties, this is where sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't and you know when you go to the dealer, it doesn't! I won't go to the dealer anyway unless it's something I can't handle or it's gonna cost a fortune! I'm a bit anal about anybody else touching my vehicles.

I bet you have some ice or snow rattling around somewhere. Thaw the thing out in a warm garage and see what happens. Also a quick inspection by yourself under the truck might reveal something.

Do you have side steps or nerf bars? They can rattle if it's loose, and it actually can sound like it's coming from the front axle.

He's in New Jersey so it's not likely to see stubborn ice chunks rattling aound inside the body.
