Oh, and by the way, here's a sound clip of the rattle described above: http://www.squicky.org/tmp/subaru/idlerattle.mp3

It only happens sometimes at idle when the car is warm (never when it's cold). Sometimes I can make it disappear by rolling forward over a little bump. I'm guessing it's just a loose heat shield and I was going to get it looked at during my first oil change. The deceleration noise described before is definitely more worrisome. I'm just posting this because it might be related (and because there are so many "my car is making funny sounds" posts on the internet without recordings and I figure I'd try to set a good example ).

Thanks again!
