Moving noise is very hard to find.

could well be exhaust shields,
did you take a rubber mallet and tap the parts (exh, end to end?)
bang ,rattle, bang , repeat
seen many bad CAT (brick inside loose) rattle. hit it. bingo. there you go.

i also jam objects in cat shelds to stop them for making noise.
just for temporary to find source.

    surely if it was the exhaust then the noise would be there when out of gear and reving to 2000 revs but the noise is only there when i am driving along the road in gear and at 1900 revs!

    why make this harder, when an engine is under torque the whole drive line twists,, and that includes, the exh. see those rubber mounts ,that is what they do...... if you fix enought machinces, you learn fast that the can make noises 1000s of way. its unlimited, to the inane simple to complex. it can even be U-joints/CV's or any thing on car loose. a shop would find LOCATION first using a remote stethoscope to find the location. then work that. Noise is a hands on deal. , i recommed getting live help as guessing is not easy with 3000 parts on todays cars..

SOURCE: The fittings and bodywork on my car rattle like a

The plastic ledges either side of the rear parcel shelf are each held by three 10mm bolts. Take them off and stick pices of cloth to the back of them so that when you bolt them in the cloth is between the ledge and the interior trim. Wedge bits of rubber between the front of the ledges and the moulding either side of the rear seat back to stop the ledges flexing under the weight of the shelf. Put sticky tape on the rear shock absorber mounting covers in the boot to keep them still. If you have rear speakers in the ledges they may vibrate and need little bits of rubber to stop this. Check that the front passenger seat isn't rattling in its runners when unoccupied. I cured this by bending the runner channel slightly with a hammer and a piece of strong tube (an old jack handle). The sides of the dash moulding may rattle against the windscreen pillar mouldings-jam a strip of rubber between them. The cup holder (near the ash-tray) is a terrible rattler-wedge it with rubber or sponge tape. The rear view mirror needs atiny bit of rubber pipe between the front of the bracket (where there is a little blob sticking out) and the windscreen. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: a pronounced rattling noise underneath the vehicle

From a written description a rattle is not really possable to diagnose, is may be nothing to worry about but could be bad or dangerous, is there a fixya expert nearby to have a look before you land up with a big bill!

SOURCE: high pitch whining sound from engine

Check the power steering fluid if its low it could cause this. Also could be alternator, water pump, ac compressor, or idler pulley. My bet would be on the idler pulley, its the one that keeps the belt tension constant. Remove the belt and check this pulley for slack also spin it by hand.
Good luck, dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: my 2006 suzuki forenza after driving a few miles,

if your fuel pump was failing you would have engine problems the supply of fuel would be interupted, I would guess that you have a wheel bearing that is worn out you can check this yourself by jacking the rear of the car up wheel off the ground one side at a time,take the wheel with one hand 9o'clock and other 3 o'clock and try moving it back and forth if there is any movement at all even just a little you need a new wheel bearing after you drive a few miles it heat up and make a humming grinding noise that seems to correspond with your speed ,speed up it gets louder and faster ,slow down it it slows down . they are costly but your safety is at risk and others safety is to.get it taking care of asap .

Heat shield rattling noise engine

Go to a a large hardware store and buy 2 band clamps that will fit around the heat shields and clamp them tight. This is the manufacturers approved fix for heat shield rattle. The fix sure beats the $1000.00 for a new catalytic converter assembly. I have done this fix dozens of times over the years of my car repair career.

My toyota corolla nze 2002 has a rattling sound in the gear box

SInce any noise from within the engine/gear box cannot be taken lightly, it is important that you will need a good look from a service shop. If you have been carrying out the scheduled service in accordance with Toyota timings, there will not be an issue. You could check out if the noise is external,otherwise get you car to the authorised Toyota centre for an estimate. This will be better than trying out/ stipping and then waiting for spares. I hope my advise is helpful. good day

If it's doesn't sound like it's your engine which i am thinking not. Check to see if there any heat shield that may have come lose, like the heat shield to the spark plug wire or heat sheild along the down pipe. 
Good luck and hope this was the rattling your taking about as it heats up it expands and tighten's up.
