Hi All,

I have a 2007 XC90 3.2 RWD with around 112,800 miles. On acceleration, there is a rattle (not a valve knocking) that gets quieter once a steady cruise is achieved. At idle in gear, a very quiet rattle can be heard. When transmission is slipped into neutral, the rattle goes away. The engine shifts normally, acclerates normally and gas mileage is steady at around 20.5 mpg (mixed city and highway). I am using 93 octane gas. This week the check engine light came on. Before I take it to the dealership, does anyone have an idea what this might be?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Followup: had the check engine light investigated at my local gas station. The code indicated an evap leak. Had the gas cap and hoses checked. Check engine light was reset. So far it hasn't reappeared. I topped off all the fluids I have access to. The rattle is still there. Thoughts?
