Here's a good one . My 02 vert has been completly trouble free until yesterday while crusing with the top down . I was sitting at the intersection when the light changed and started to pull away when I heard this not very loud rattle that I thought was coming from the car next to me . Well as it turned out it was coming from my car . It only made the rattling noise as i slowly accelerated away from a light . No noise while idle or just cruising . I got out to check & couldn't see anything so I Nailed the son-of-a-bitch , thats when it got real loud and I saw what looked like black pieces of plastic coming from under the car .It kinda sounded like it was coming from around the starter and flex plate and cover . I was close to home so I drove it on in . Now I have to decide whether to drive it to the shop or have it towed . It sits pretty low so I'm not sure I want to take a chance with a wrecker but not sure about driving it either . Anybody have any idea what it could possibly be ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated .

is it original exhaust and how many miles. It might be time to replace your exhaust from rot

When I first began reading this, I thought it was gonna be differential chatter.

Just raise it up and have a peek. Sounds like the cheapo plastic shield that bolts in behind the starter has come loose,,,and the flywheel chewed it up. It rides within 1/4 inch of the flywheel and if moved much at all it wouldn't take much for the flywheel teeth and/or torque converter bolts to snag ahold of it.
