Hey everyone,

I recently noticed a loud rattling noise in my 08 JKU. It hasn't occurred before but now it happens intermediately, mostly when the Jeep starts from a cold start or at a slow speed.

The rattling is right under the center console/ around engine compartment area... could it be the heat shield??

Specs: 08 JKU with 146k last oil/fluids change occurred at 144k

It's a Jeep so its expected... but I'm just wondering if its something serious that needs to be addressed.

The heat shields are known to do that.

Probably the heatshield. Does the rattling go away once your JKU warms up?
