Still under warranty (yay) I noticed that at high speeds, 75/80mph (not that i drive that fast...) i hear a knocking noise under the hood. Intermittent. Like aluminum hitting itself. Ity happens Only at high speeds. I Havent been able to figure out what it is. Thinking it may be a loose heat shield or something. Any suggestions? thanks!

Thanks for merging my thread but it is unrelated to the others... that's why i started a new one. Mine ONLY happens at high speeds. Not going over bumps, at slow speeds or with normal driving. Only on the highway at 75+ MPH

Your two posts don't jive. I merged it because of your first post, which clearly said "loose heat shield". If it's not related to the loose heat shield topic, why mention you think that's what it is?

Have you checked the heat shield to ensure that's not the source of the sound? We're working blind here (so to speak). If you could upload a sound clip, maybe we could get a better idea of what your talking about.

Here I have a 2010 Nissan Rogue with an engine rattling noise. The warranty for power train has expired a few months ago. It seems that this rattling noise on occurs when the gear is in position drive and reverse (especially in "somewhat cold" start). The heat shield doesn't feel loose (by tapping on it). Posted a video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UECsfpY3I94
First sign of rattle can be heard at 0:08

Any suggestions of what it could be?

I recently discovered an odd rattle coming from the engine compartment of my 2nd gen 2015 Rogue. There's a weird metal rattling sound that is intermittant usually when the engine starts up and during moderate acceleration. Still not sure where it's coming from other than the engine compartment. It's still under warranty so should I bring this back to the dealer to have them try and figure it out?

Just an update on this...I brought my 2015 Rogue into the dealer and low and behold, it was a rattling heat shield they had to tighten up. The ttech who worked on my car thought it was a popping noise at first and re-greased the front axle until I went on a test drive and showed him exactly what the problem was.

The tech who worked on my car said it was the first time he's ever seen the issue on a newer gen Rogue. I have nearly 16k mostly city miles on this car but this is the first car that I have owned that has developed this issue. Hopefully I won't see a reoccurance of this issue again.

2013 Rogue Rattle

I was having a problem with an annoying rattle when accelerating, found the article about a cracked weld on the heat shield on the NOCO Forum. I was able to correct the problem with a hose clamp as directed from the Nissan bulletin in five minutes. I was SO happy! Thank you Forum.

Hi everyone

Created an account just to say that this fixed my 2009 rogues rattle. My broken weld was in the back right before the muffler though. Band clamp around it fixed it right up. That sound was God awful, like a spoon in a garbage disposal.

Thanks so much for the help!
