Whats that sound?

When I'm in neutral and at a stop something around the oil pan or flywheel area rattles like it's loose. Any ideas? Do flywheels tend to come loose after time? Seems like it really shouldn't

If you have a manual transmission check the linkage bracket that mounts to the tranny hump in the floor. That's one commonly overlooked part that makes a lot of noise

Maybe your catalytic converter's heat shield is loose/coming off? It's not exactly by your oil pan but it's common

If it goes away the moment you step on the clutch, it's likely a broken clutch return spring inside the bell housing. If it is, it won't really hurt anything, just annoying. To find out, with the noise present, press something you can listen through (like a metal socket extension or if you have a mechanics stethoscope) against the passenger side of the bell housing to see if that's where it's coming from. Here's some pictures.

the closest sound I can thing of is when you put a record on a record player before it starts to actually play music you get that fuzziness but this is like metal on metal sounding.

Just one end, the other end is operated by the slave cylinder. Check out the last couple of minutes of this video we made a while back. It (attempts to )explains how it works.
