    Mine does the same, and it does go away when I press the brakes slightly.  Is this dangerous?

It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.

Rattling from upper front of engine and coolant loss runs rough


you have over heated the engine and the noise may be from ring failure . It may be from detonation from the fuel detonation from an extremely hot chamber. Have a compression test done to determine internal damage _--gasket and cracked head--. Have the coolant system pressure tested to check for leakage

RATTLING NOISE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT TIRE


The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.

Rattle under the front end?


The rattle may be stabilizer link rod bushings or a strut mount loosening up as for the engine light you must hook up a code reader to determine the problem otherwise you may be replacing parts blindly.

Terrible rear end rattle


It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.
