OK. Just back from the muffler shop. The insides of the converter were in pieces. So...$218.25 (incl. tax) later, I've got a brand new Magnaflow converter. No more rattle...and no check engine light. I'm pleased. That rattle was getting on my last nerve. And thanks so much for all the help and responses! I really appreciate it.

this rattle did it come and go pending on how much you were on the throttle/? I was just gonna punch mine out but Im not sure if it will throw a code. Its a 2002 and has sensors before and after the cat.

OTwoRam,
the rattle was worst at idle in 'drive'. Didn't hear very much at idle in 'park'. It would quit as I accelereted...and didn't hear it at all driving a steady speed (but my ears aren't what they used to be either). My '96 has sensors fore and aft, too. I just don't know about the codes. Mine didn't send any. Good luck with yours.

What country do you live in?
I was just quoted $500 from Midas for just the converter. They said it would be a lot of work and welding.
