I don't hear it when I just start it and shut it off, but if I've been driving for a little bit and then shut it off, I hear a rattle from under the hood. It only lasts for about 2 seconds. I snooped around and the only post I could find about this was this one but there doesn't seem to be a definite answer. Anyone have any input?

Thanks.
Pete

if you have a manual just step on the clutch when you shut down.. the sound will be gone... :thumbup:

Yep, I do have a manual, so I take it the sound is normal and nothing is broken? :)

I have a manual and it does the same thing. I think its coming from the transmission. I think everyone has it here (manual) but some cars are louder than others. Its normal from what I've been told.
