Strange raddling noise from front passenger side
\015 I've been hearing a strange raddling noise in the front passenger side of my 98 chevy blazer. It used to only happen when i was backing up but now it happens when im driving forward too. I know its not the wheel bearings.it sounds like there's something loose. could anybody tell me what to look for? thanks a lot\015
If the noise only happens when the vehicle is in motion...check the front suspension. place the jack under lower control arm ,then get a bar and lift up on the tire..ball joint issues are well known in blazers and cause this condition. if it does the rattle noise when its idling and to op temp--could be the cat converter causing the noise on pass side directly under passenger seat. when cold, smack the cat with rubber mallet and if any rattle is present, cat should be replaced so it dont cause further damage .hope that was helpful !!
