Welll.. this has been happening since i've had the car, like a year now, it doesnt seem to be doing anything but pissing me off... grr! anyways, when i put the car in Neutral or Park .. it makes this ticking noise that's terrible... a buddy of mine said it might be my 3rd cat... but i looked at it when i did my exhaust.. and it looked pretty secure..

If it bothers you that much, put it on some ramps or jackstands and crawl under with it runnin and rattling....use a stethoscope, or a big wrench as a sounding rod pressing one end against your ear, firmly, the other end against parts untill you locate the exact sourcre of the noise(old mechanics trick to figure out which cyl had a bad rod bearing , bent valve, etc.....really works) finding location is a very important clue , and then you can start figuring out the cause.....Good Luck

The heat shields on the catalytic converters can make a very annoying rattle ... sort of like a tick mixed with a clang. If it is an exhaust noise, you may be able to replicate it by tapping/pounding on the exhaust parts.
