Your idle speed solenoid is probably gummed up. remove it and spray it with carb cleaner, wipe clean. Also clean the hole that it came out of as well. use the spray carb cleaner to clean the throttle plate and bore.
You should let the engine cool off, and then fill the radiator to the top. Start the engine, and then look from underneath the vehicle to see where exactly the fluid is coming from. Could be a hose, the radiator, or the water pump
If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe.
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.
