I have a rattling sound when driving my car. The sound is similar to if you had bad Gas or condensation in your gas tank. I use top grade gas only. I hear it only when I step on gas from a stop, or when I accelerate the speed.
My engine also sounds like an old car, doesn’t purr anymore. Just hear from inside cab. Mechanic’s always say they can’t hear it, however that is with them in the passenger seat

If it's under the hood, that rattling may be preignition, also called ping or knock. It can burn holes in the pistons over time.

I suggest you have your car checked to make sure that the ignition is timed properly and the anti-knock system is working.
