    2005 cts rattle Help!!

    My car has a rattling sound coming from the front of the car and I checked around the engine bay and underneath to try and figure this thing out. I don't have a clue what it can be. Any assistance would be appreciated. I posted a video on YouTube.

    I hear it when I return from a drive. Revving the engine will cause the sound too. It doesn't happen on a cold start.

    I just changed my oil, timing chain, water pump, power steering fluid and coolant. All topped off this weekend. This sound has been happening for a few weeks.

    Edit on previous post. No change when I rev the engine. It gets louder sometimes when I turn the steering wheel.

    I would think it would get louder when you rev it because there is more exhaust which means more preasure.
