1994 Nissan Sentra, GA16DE engine, automatic transmission, 326k
- motor oil change (last 2 weeks)
- replaced cracked rear wheel spacers (~5 months ago)
How does it sound: The car started having a low-pitch rattling sound coming form the rear while driving. It's not continuous, it seems to be related to hitting bumps and potholes. It's not a high-pitch noise like a loose exhaust clamp or a loose exhaust heat shield (I've had both of those before), it's a low-pitch noise, like something stiff and thick is loose. I don't feel any vibration, I just hear the sound.
How does it drive: Well, I could be imagining things, but it feels like the car isn't cornering to the right like it used to. Could be that now that winter weather is breaking I'm taking corners too quickly and these winter tires can't handle it, could be the front-left is a bit low on pressure (doubtful, I checked it recently). Could it be the rear anti-sway bar snapped or got loose somehow?
