    Had a weird rattle sound when stopped in Drive, that would go away if I changed to Neutral?

    Dealer said if was the Catalytic Converter, but they don't make a California "CARB" compliant one anymore. :mad:

    Found one at O'Reilly's:

    Magnaflow Direct Fit CARB compliant:

    #4481609

    Only took 30 Min to do, now she's quit as a hybrid. :burnrubber:
