I get a rattling sound that sounds like its coming from the cat area
Like a loose shield
Have not figured out what it is


: I have a 87/D M3 E30 with about 140,000 miles on the clock. Been running like a dream for 2 years but recently on startup the engine sounds like a diesel for about 30 secs then runs OK. Thought it might be a timing chain problem but doesn't always happen.
: Car is regularly serviced and OIL level is fine.
: Any idea's.
