So I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt LS (used) with roughly 87,000 Miles. I have been driving it for about 2 months now. All of a sudden I start hearing this rattling noise. I never hear it before and it only happened around 40mph. The noise is coming from the drivers side. PLEASE HELP?????

My car has 87000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Amie. Thanks for contacting us today. A rattling noise like you have described is often caused by a loose bracket, belt or pulley. On the driver side, a power steering pulley could be the source of this noise, while a loose radiator fan shroud or other bracket are other possible sources. The best way to diagnose any noise is to have a professional mechanic test drive the vehicle with you, and complete a car is making a noise inspection; in an attempt to replicate the sound. This allows them to isolate the source of the noise and recommend the right repairs.
