In Reply to: Rattling/Hissing noise b/t shifts..pls help (long) posted by jasonm3 on June 13, 2000 at 15:50:23:

I made an appointment with BMW of SF so we'll see what happens. Hopefully it's only the cat conv and they should replace it under warranty.

Thanks again

: This is a problem I've been trying to figure out for a while now and I was wondering if anyone had some insight before I go to the dealer and get screwed over.

: My 95 (out of warranty) makes a rattling/hissing noise between shifts (above 2500 rpms..not below) and during enging braking (again above 2500 rpms).

: I had my cats replaced under warranty last summer which quieted the problem but it's back.

: I'm thinking that it could also be my exhaust which is an aftermarket stainless steel that the previous owner put on 3 years ago.

: Does anyone suggest replacing the exhaust to see what happens? Replace the cats again?

: Thanks for any and all help!

: cheers
