open your hood and have someone else turn on your car, and try to get close on where the rattling is coming from. theres a lot of metal and stuff under there, so its hard to say what coulnd be making a clinging rattling sound

does it sound like really fast clicking or ticking....? if so, tighten your spark plugs to spec........ if that doesn't do it, then you'll need a valve adjustment

hmm not a clicking,, but more of rattling... i know its below the engine bay cuz i put my ear to my intake and it sounds like it from there but then i go to the other side and damn i hear it too
