: 02 Escalade engine jingle

My 02 has a noticable rattle after I start it coming from what sounds like the driver side of the engine. Metal on metal jingle sound almost...any help would be great.

I've had a similar noise since day 1 of getting the truck. It has never gotten better/worse, so I leave it be.

I had the same rattle coming from under the truck. If you look under the truck from the passenger side, follow the down tube from the headers and right before the cat. there is a thing that looks like an 02 sensor. If you tighten that sensor then the rattle should go away. It is on the passenger side of the truck.
