as for the rattling sound have you checked the heat shield on the catalytic converter, mine was loose and was causing a rattling sound when it was at idle, and would go away as the rpm's increased.

Hello, it sounds like you have a possible wheel bearing or brake problem. first support the van on jackstands and shake the front tires, if you feel alot of play in the wheel bearings they may need to be tightened up, this is done by using a torque wrench to set the bearing load, if you need to get the torque sequence it can be found in the repair manuals at auto parts stores. if you shake the wheels and it feels tight with no excessive play it may be a brake issue, you need to look at the backing plate to make sure it isnt rubbing on the rotor.

Does it sound like Metal on metal noise? or like a knocking noise?
If it increases with RPM that means you may have a serious issue.
If your comfortable i'd take off one coil pack at a time and see if the knocking stops. If it stops that cylinder might have Rod Knock..
it could be valve lash, or a valve train tick as well. There are several different things sadly.
