I drive my wife nuts with sounds. So much so that the kids will silence noticeable rattles when they're in the car with me!
Good luck!

Have you had a recent Oil change? If I remmber, there is a cover that needs to be removed to access the oil drain plug. Maybe it is now loose?

Only the I4 has a plate to remove the V6 you don't have to remove anything.

If know what you mean about your wife not wanting to help... don't they understand... there is a rattle in my car! Must locate and stop!

Tried locating rattle/vibration noise with no luck,I cant here it in the engine bay or out side of car,put my ear to windshield by dashboard when outside of car can here it mildly,kinda sounds like coming from in between dashboard and firewall but really hard to tell,if I shake car slightly when in it,it stops for brief sec,then continues on,if I turn ac or fan on rpm,climbs to 700 rpm and stops.Grrrr

Yea will do in the morning, it has to be completely warmed up to idle low enough to vibrate enough to start rattling noise,usually right around 600 rpm .

I have a noise simliar but hard to tell how similar. In my situation its the fuel injectors.... the TLX use very high pressure (like other cars) fuel injection... hence why from the outside of the car it sounds like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

I have the same sound with my 2015 with 76000 miles. Comes and goes but started after last oil change. Working with the dealer now to determine what it is. Thanks for recording the sound.
