SOURCE: engine rattles at acceleration and hesitates

This sounds like your ignition timing is awry. You'll need a timing light to verify if this is correct. If that's OK the your valve clearances may be a little loose.

SOURCE: Hesitation on takoff and on acceleration

it could be one of many things with that many miles on the vehicle. when if ever did you change the fuel pump last? both filter and pump may need to be changed. that's alot of miles remember that. the filter is under the hood on the drivers side mounted on the firewall. under the brake master cylinder. be careful to relieve the fuel pressure before changing it.
