Which is the heatsheild you are refering to?

If you mean the one on the hood then you're ok, but since you said under the car i doubt that's it, so if you mean any under neath the car, I wouldn't want to drive to far until its replaced.

While you're replacing it, you should also consider replacing the plastic underpanels on the front of the bumper. They get old and tear our easy, and right now there's a group buy on them.

I think he is referring to the exhaust heat shield which protects the driveshaft.

Mine fell off ages ago. However, my mechanic advises me to reinstall a new one as the heat from the exhaust tends to dry the rubber Guibo (flex disc) and causes it to crack. Some people will tell you that it does nothing, but for peace of mind, I'd rather have it there.

I'd think the heat shield was originally installed for a reason..... Better to replace it, i guess!
