Question about 2001 Mazda 626
In this situation, I found out that the top latch of the front hood rattled against the bottom metal hood latch at low idle. A thin rubber strip with adhesive on one side, cut to just fit over the bottom metal loop where the top latch rests on does for temporary, but quiet fix. Just make sure the the rubber strip allows the latch to lock properly. Push down firmly on the front hood and try prying the hood open with just your fingers to check. Again, this is temporary as the adhesive may get dirty and fall off during multiple maintenance access to your engine.

It may be the catalytic converter or exhaust pipe heat shield(s), with the park brake set and ac on at ilde push on the sheet metal shields with a broom stick and see if the noise stops. It works best with someone in the car to listen for noise changes.
