    Jack the car up and with the palm of your hand, slap the underneath of the unit and see if it rattles. If it does, that's your problem.

    Cat's can stink if the engine is botted from cold.

    Depends on what rattling. It's difficult to tell over the internet. Could be a knackered bush of sorts, loose heat shield.

    I personally think it's most likely to be the Cat.
