It could be sucking a little air and if the pipe is not tied down tight it would attempt to move as the air bubble worked through. Make certain that the pipes are fastened securely and that your check-valve is not letting all of the water drain out of the pipe.

Fear can cause your poodle to shake intermittently. Even something as every day as taking a bath can cause a dog to shake if they are afraid of the water. Being happy could also cause a dog to shake, as could being sick or feeling pain.

When any species of animal including cats presents with the death rattle, this means that they are dying. The death rattle is the expulsion of air as the last breath is taken.

Catalytic converters do not rattle. If it does it will need to be replaced as it may block the exhaust. Loose heat shield?

A common cause of pipe noise in a home is when the pipes vibrate or rattle inside the walls. When the home was built, the plumber is supposed to install strapping around the pipe where it enters the studs in the wall or travels through the floor to prevent this. If this strapping was not secured and has fallen off (or never there to begin with) this will cause the pipe to rattle or vibrate when the water is turned on or off and cause the noise you are hearing. I don't think it is cause for alarm, but it definitely is annoying. Repairing this problem could be simple if the noise can be pin pointed. A licensed plumber should be contacted regardless.

Yes it sure will, but it can also be the valves need adjustment.

Atropine sulfate drops sublingually, scopolamine transdermal patches, robinul subcutaneous injections, or HYOSCYAMINE sublingual tablets can be used to dry the secretions that cause the "death rattle."

It is possible that the speedometer on a 1997 Plymouth will only work intermittently because the gear is worn out. Sometimes dirt can get up into the area where the speedometer cable is housed and cause excessive wear to the gear.

Its either a faulty cable or a faulty electrical connection.

Probably cause by a worn out/defective brake light switch.

A rattle in the right front fender of a Toyota Camry may indicate that you need a wheel alignment. It could also point to a problem with your struts.

It can be and it can be something else. A good professional mechanic can diagnose the cause.

Relays usually go out all at once, but I have seen changes in weather such as humidity cause a relay to work intermittently.
