It may be your catalytic converter. Ours did the same thing with an automatic transmission. We sometimes thought it was the transmission, then we received a recall on the converter. Took it in to be replaced, and no more rattling.

What is transmission liquid in a car do?

Transmission fluid acts differently in manual and automatic transmissions. In a manual transmission it lubricates the gears and thrust bearings. Generally older manual transmission use a heavier weight lubricant ( 75 to 90 weight ) and some require non hypoid or GL 1 - GL3 oil so as not to destroy any yellow metals. Newer manual transmissions use GL 4 and GL 5 oils and may require multiple viscosity fluid. Automatic transmission fluid lubricates parts and also acts as hydraulic fluid. There are different grades and ratings usually signified as ATF and/or Dextron. Use your repair or owners manual to select the appropriate type of fluid. Using the wrong type can cause severe and costly damage to your transmission. Check your fluid level in your automatic transmission often. If your transmission is a manual, replace the fluid according to the maintenance schedule in your manual religiously.
