The Mothership Maintenance Log #152

Had a friend drive the car today, and he complained that the accelerator/throttle was sticking. So I put some oil on the pedal, cable, and throttle body, and it made a noticeable improvement :thumbs up

So since I’ve owned the car, it’s had this rattle that only appears under light acceleration at low speed/rpm (~2K). It wasn’t a problem for a long time because the transmission made so much more noise. But now that the transmission is nice and quiet, this rattle is pretty obvious and I want to hunt it down. It sounds exactly like a loose exhaust heat shield vibrating against the manifold, so I pulled the heat shield off.. And no dice, noise is still there. Not really sure what to check next.
