    Hi consider this to be a similar problem to one I have encountered on a 1998 Mercedes C200 auto. Car drives fine and changes up & down no worries. Noticeable rattle when stopped and foot on brake pedal in drive or reverse. I hope it is something simple like a heat plate on engine or exhaust that is vibrating. Any info appreciated.

Replace the "PCV" valve. They're cheap. To test it, shake it. It SHOULD rattle.

I was driving on the highway , all the sudden the engine light came on, I checked every thing, The engine seems to be allright,, Could you please tell me how I could reset the engine light... Description...

The standard way is to disconnect the positive cable to the battery for 5 mins. If that does not work take it to any franchised auto parts store (Auto zone, Advanced auto , Pep boys) and they can reset it for you for free.
