The element inside the cat has come lose. The only remedy that I know of is to replace the cat. My '96 did the same thing. The rattle was very annoying. \:D/

I know this is very late to update, but I had a new Emco Cat installed for $180 and it solved the problem. When we took the old one off and shook it rattled.
