Engine noise- rattles when idliing whines when accelerating

Car ran fine all day, the last time I started it up, When the engine caught and started there was a thump, then the rattle. Any time I would use the gas to accelerate or maintain speed, I could hear a whining noise. No gauges are reading anything unexpected oand no trouble lights on. Checked all fluids and everything appears fine, color and all.

have you had the catalytic converter checked. When they break apart they will make a rattle ling noise. eventually the broken pieces will plug the exhaust and cause a lack of power feeling. When the exhaust is cold hit the bottom of the catalytic converter with your hand. If it rattles it is bad and needs to be replaced.

If the rattling changes with the revs of the engine, it might be that the valve compensators are either worn or not getting enough lubrication. 20V engines have quite small oil passages travelling to the head. They tend to clog up with gunk if the oil change is not frequent enough.

Try checking the heat shield on your exhaust system. You should have one over the manifold and one over your cat converter under the car.
