It could be something as simple as your skid shield not having all the bolts in it and it could be rattling against your crossmember, Also check your front sway bar the end links could also be bad, or the mounts themselves.
A rattle in the front end is a pretty vague description.
This could be caused by struts, loose mounts, loose wheels, engine mounts or almost anything else but may I suggest you check the sway bar bushes located at the end of the sway bar, this is the most common cause of rattles in these vehicles.
I also suggest you check every other bolt you can see in the front end, then look for more and check those too.
Every rattle has potential to be dangerous, especially suspension faults, I suggest that you take your car to a competent mechanic as anything you touch in relation to suspension could kill you or someone else, I have seen it happen.
I hope this helps and good luck.
look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over. Good luck
The rattle may be stabilizer link rod bushings or a strut mount loosening up as for the engine light you must hook up a code reader to determine the problem otherwise you may be replacing parts blindly.
It's a loose steering column. Remove the black plastic shield under the steering wheel. Lossen the bolt that holds the two shafts together, slide them together as far as they'll go, and re-tighten the bolt. It's that simple... to stop that annoying rattle.
450-$60 per upper strut mount at autozone, and probably 1hr. to 1-1/2 hrs.per side to replace it. Depending on your labor rate in your area. Would recommend alignment after too. Usually if your going to do one, do the other too, because it won't be too far behind the first one to clunk, and then you end up paying for another alignment too. Here's a site that may help, if not exactly what your getting done, pick closest for rough estimate, just add, or subtract parts/labor your not, or are getting done. ( repairpal.com )
have you tried jacking it up and pushing and pulling on the wheels to try to get a noise theres probably more going on but it could be something simple as just a loose nut or bolt. u can check your mounts by applying the hand brake and in gear give it a little gas have some one check to see if they are having to much movement
