Q: Rattling noise in front drivers side what is it

rattling noise in front drivers side when i hit bumps in the road

My car has 92000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If this noise is only occurring when hitting bumps, then most of the time it is due to a strut that is failing. This is a common problem as the struts begin to lose pressure over time. I usually get the vehicle in the air first to check for any loose parts. It can be a bad stabilizer pin or worn bushing, but a bad strut is much more common. If you are planning on having this rattling noise fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose and repair the noise for you.
