Default Car is messed up? Help please!?

My dads 1997 lexus lx 450 makes weird rumbling sounds during idle in all gears. Sometimes it rattles less during certain gears. The car had problems shorly before with the radiatior and heater. Could this be the problem. It runs well, though.

I'm not sure where the rumbling is coming from, but you might want to check the muffler mounts. If the mounts break or wear out, the piping can vibrant against the crossmembers or other components. Like I said, it's hard to diagnose without much info, but it's at least worth a shot. If that's not it, try checking the ATF level (if it's an auto). It could also be motor mounts that are in-op.

Good luck!
