Probably a heat shield. Often time the screws that hold the shields in place rust away causing the shield to rattle. After the exhaust heats up, the pipes and shield expand causing the shield to stop rattling until it cools down again later when the car has been sitting for a while. Usually you'll find shields under or around the catalytic converter and around the exhaust pipe nearest to the engine. Most folks would probably recommend you remove the shield and be done with it. That's your call. Just remember though, the shields are there for a reason. In particular, the shield under the catalytic converter is there to prevent the possibility of starting tall grass on fire in the event you had to pull off the road for example to fix a flat tire or something along those lines. It might be unlikely, but its definitely been known to happen. Let us know how it goes. Thanks.

SOURCE: Pontiac G6 gas pedal rattle
Is this almost like a metallic buzzing sound?
Find the catalytic converter under the car it should have a shield on it. Use a broomstick with the car running and hold the shield still and have someone give it a little gas. Just move from shield to shield until you find the offending shield.
Don't touch these with your hand as they can get hot fast.
Most parts houses sell a very large hose clamp to go around these shield for about $10, they will know exactly what you are looking for.

It seems like the clutch pressure plate has given in. Best would be to replace the clutch pro-kit.( Clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing)

Testimonial: "A mechanic said basically the same to me today, so I'll be getting it replaced. Nice one knight :)"
