Hello everyone.
I have a 2007 pilot awd with 215k on it! Still running good, but about 10k ago I developed a rattle when I hit the gas. Especially if I back off the pedal and then gently re apply gas. Sounds like something is loose from the front right of the engine compartment but on the last oil change the dealer said nothing was loose.
I’m taking it back tomorrow, but curious if anyone has experienced this ?

My 04 had a rattle similar conditions and it was the rear part of the ceramic of the catalytic converter was cracked off and loose in the body. Was easy to find by pushing on the exhaust pipe and making it rattle. I only have one cat on 04.

Sounds loose heat shield like. Loose cat converters are obvious at idle. Loose heat shields rattle as you accelerate away.
