Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
Probably a worn hydraulic chain tensioner allowing too much oil to leak out into the sump and the pump at idle cannot keep up the oil pressure.. It probably means that the chain is on it's last links--- so to speak

check the transmission fluid for starters. sounds like it is low. Is tranny still under warranty? I would take it back to whoever did work

Yep, there's a good chance some part of the exhaust system has come loose and is rattling at certain RPM's. Start fault-tracing by checking if any part of the exhaust seems loose to come in contact with anything, or if there's any loose clamps or similar parts hanging onto it. Another quite common reason for rattle is that some part of the exhaust manifold, such as a bolt or hose/pipe has loosened (often due to rust and/or corrosion).
Another possibility is that it's somehow related to the transmission (since you mention putting it into gear). If so that would be another subject.

The PCV valve on the KA24E 4-cylinder is located in front of the oil filter and above the alternator. It points to the rear of the engine.
You will need only two tools; a stubby 19mm open end wrench and a pair of pliers to remove the hose clamp. I did it without removing anything else. Just reach around to the right of the oil filter. It took about 15 minutes. Here is a pic:

I have a 2002 maxima with 75k mile and heard a rattling which died down after it warmed up.
It was a bad timing chain pulley. Don't wait too long before fixing that!
