Question about 2008 Toyota Prius

1 Answer

My 2008 Prius is making rattling noises under my hood when I drive under 15mph. Any idea what it is? It sounds like a rock in a tin can

I recently drove on gravel, so it might be a rock that got stuck somewhere. Any idea where it might be from?

SOURCE: 04 Endeavor rattling noise

I had the same problem! I crawled underneath the car and discovered that a heat shield on the exhaust header pipe was corroded and rattling against the exhaust pipe. (Before the muffler)
I removed the portion and clamps and solved the problem. Give it a try.

SOURCE: Clicking Noise Coming From Under The Hood

Have you checked your belts? A piece of belt may have come off and been slapping under your hood, and then fell off completely. While it was slapping, your computer would have detected the slow down of pulleys etc. and caused your engine light to come on. Then when the piece broke off, everything would be back to normal. Let me know!

How many yards are in one ton?


One is a measurement of length, the other is a measure of weight.

however, you might be referring to 'Cubic Yards'?

depends upon the rock type and how fine it is, but one reference notes that one cubic foot of gravel typically weighs about 100 pounds.
So 1 ton has 2000/100 or 20 cubic feet of gravel. A cubic yard is 3x3x3 = 27 cubic feet to the cubic yard
Answer is 20/27 or 0.74 cu yard. I'd round that to 3/4 cubic yard.

On 2001 e320 a rattling noise is coming from converter can tighten it up


More likely you have picked up some road gravel or a rock large enough to rattle. Visually inspect the Catalytic Converter to see if there is a rock bouncing around in it. If not then a replacement would be necessary since there would be nothing to tighten up.
