i found out what was casuing my rattling problem with my car, it was my exhaust...it must have been hitting the frame of the car, and sometimes hitting the drive shaft b/c i can see on the exhaust where it looks like it was "filed" down and i can see on the drive shaft where they were rubbing. I took my cat back off completely and i have to get it welded together, but that wont be for a few days so i was wondering if it was safe to drive with out my catback system on? I went on a small ride with it like that and it seemed fine to me, it was just louder...DUH haha but i was wondering if since the exhaust is coming right out of the cat, if it would heat something behind it up and cause problems...

I don't think it will cause any heating problems back there...You'll get some back pressure and probably backfire...But other than that I don't think it's equivalent to running your car with no exhaust manifolds on a cold day :eek:P

Ask yourself a simple question. Was the car manufactured to run without the proper exhaust system? I believe the definative word here is valves. Good luck.
