ITS NOT NECESSARY TO BE THE BATTERY CHECK ALTERNATOR IF ITS CHARGING OR NOT BY CHECK VOLTAGE BY VOLT METER IF IT SHOWS MORE THEN 12 V WHEN THE ENGINE RUNNING ALTERNATOR IS OK IF NOT REPLACE OR REPAIR IT. AND ALSO YOU CAN REMOVE BATTERY CABLE IF ENGINE OFF ALTERNATOR IS NOT OK.

Emission control warning light came on kia 05 v6
When you disconnected the battery you essentially cleared the stored codes, Some codes cannot be cleared by this method, I would have it checked out, usually if the light is flashing it is a major problem and needs to be fixed

the "rattle" will be detonation caused by spontaneous combustion from incorrect air/fuel ratio and incorrect ignition timing
it is most prominent under acceleration or under load ( up hills , high speeds etc) and will melt pistons if left unattended
run the fault codes to find the faulty sensors , but I suspect that the heated oxygen sensors(HO2S) in the exhaust manifolds before the cat converters will be at fault as they report the gas composition back to the ECM so that the mixture can be adjusted correctly ( indicated by the poor economy)
there are knock sensors on the block which are indicated as faulty as they should be reporting this condition to the ECM to adjust the settings
finally it could come down to low fuel pressure or faulty injectors
what ever it is you need to get a proper fault code reading and have the problem fixed asap as it will cause engine damage if not fixed
