Q: rattle under the hood.

asked by on

When I start my car in the morning I hear a rattle under the hood. Almost like something is loose. When it warms up it is fine? This is the first time I have ever had to keep my car outside as I moved in September. It has been garaged since I purchased it in 2007. Don't know if that is the reason or not.

My car has 93000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
