Well, there isn't a heat shield on the 93 90.  And the codes won't tell you
if you need a new one either, at least on the 93 90.  BTDT-If it rattles,
replace it.  It is rather easy to do if you have long extension and a swivel
12 (maybe 13 I think) socket.  Took me all of about a half hour on the lift,
I suspect about an hour in the driveway.
