Question about 2005 Suzuki Wagon R
My car rattles when driving along but only when i hit 1900revs and stops rattling at 2000revs sounds sort of like an exhaust baffle but it does not happen if i am in neutral and rev it to 1900 revs!!! only when driving along road and sound comes from engine bay!!
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.

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.

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!

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.

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 .
