I own a 99 SE Jackaroo, it is a auto and has a developed a rattle that I can't find.
It only makes this noise when the car is cold and it goes away when it warms up.
I believe it may be from the auto transmission as when you start the car in park or neutral, there is no rattle, but when any gear is selected the rattle starts.
I was wondering if any Jackeroo owners have had the same problem ?
Any feedback would be appreciated.

Rattles from the exhaust system quite often go away, or appear as the vehicle warms up, the system grows in length as it gets hot.

Exaust would be a good place to start A cold motor usually runs rougher perhaps rattling the exaust especially as when you put it in gear it drops the revs a bit

Thanks for the tip, after having another look at it , it may be from the catalytic converter.

Ozzy,
i have a Land Rover Discovery that had a very similar condition.
each morning when about 500m from home it developed a tapping noise in the motor, and went away after another 300m or so.

i traced this to the exhaust outlet manifold. the gasket was warn and the warming air escaping made a quick tapping noise.

on advise from a friend i took the car to an exhaust specialist who confirmed the problem and recitified by machining the manifold and replacing the gasket.

good luck.

Thanks for your help, the more I hear it would appear to be an exhaust problem.
