Post Check engine light/noisy startup rattle fix

Well, for me at least. I had the noisy startup rattle (which I figured was the loose tensioner everybody else was talking about) and my check engine light would come and go. I also had another weird resonating rattle under load in fifth gear, which I had attributed to a skid plate I installed.

I have a GanzFlow and Amsoil, so I went in to replace the stock intake doodads to go to the shop for CE, and when I looked at the airbox, I saw that it had popped loose on the bottom, but the top clasps were still hooked.

I had to wrestle with it some to get it all back in place, but the startup rattle is gone along with the cchekc engine light.

So if you hav those two problems, you might want to take a look at your airbox - it isn't readily apparent just looking at it from up top.

Mine is making some weird a$s rattles/squicks at idle. So, i took it to the dealer and they say it is my air box loose and doing it. Hovewer, he did not go into great details explaning exactly what is loose and what is rattling. So, i paid !40 to get it fixed ( Not covered since I was meesing with it installing GnzFlow intake). Well, it did not totally fix it but perhaps improved it since it is not doing it all the time now. Now my pass door making annoying little noise! This car is full of strange sounds.
