hiya from uk from your description of symptoms i would say the timing belt has worne or gone slack due to adjuster bearing failure? this then would result in the pistons hitting valves the rattling you heard? however when you stopped engine then tried restart ? the load applied on starting would have caused belt failure so the engine now spins over with apparent no compression ? as you do not mention milage? if it is high then the cyl/head will have to come off to assess damage ? hope this helps ?best of luck

Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.

SOURCE: loud rattle noise started on
Sounds like the Cat could be bad. Get under the vehicle and hit the cat with your hand. If it rattles then you know what your problem is, if it doesnt rattle then start check the belts and tensioners
