97 Taurus GL rattling
I've got a 97 GL that has an rattle when I am at a stop. It can be felt in the steering column. It only does it in drive, reverse and not in neutral or park. I can get it to stop by turning the wheel to a sweet spot. There is also a change in the rpm of the car. It will jump from about 1200 to 700ish rpm when the rattle starts. The car drives fine and has no problems except for this rattle. The rattle sounds like its coming from the area of the cat.
I've checked for loose things under the car. The cat is in there tight, the tie rods are solid. The power steering and transmission fluids are full and fine. The wheels turn fine.
