You could have a transmission problem or a MAP sensor problem. Have a garage do a computer check on it. It only takes 2 minutes to connect the plug, turn on the key and count the beeps.

My Toyota Mr2 Spyder is rattling

Pound on the catalytic converter, you will probably find your rattle inside, if so, you will need a new one, also check for any loose clamps or rings that have come loose, just pound on your exhaust with the side of your fist, you should find your rattle, or sometimes the heat sheilds above the exhaust come loose.
