I've noticed a slight rattling sound on my car. Sounds like it's in the engine bay.
I only hear it at idle like sitting in a drive thru. It goes away as soon as I start moving. If I shift to park it stops for a few seconds before coming back, and does the same when going from park to drive.

Any ideas?
I'm out of warranty so hopefully something cheap.

Car is 2003 base auto, 63k miles.

how can I check that myself?
pics would be great

is it something broken or just like a loose bolt?

I don't know much about car parts, obviously

Heat shield.

I wasn't going to bother doing anything about it, but when I took my car to the dealership to get an alignment they fixed it with some clamp or something for free.

Is the hood closed when it rattles? because mine was rattling for a while. The hood itself was causing the rattle when i pushed down on the hood it stopped

I have a rattle and I have come to the conclusion that it is that lever that you use to open your hood, the one under your hood. I think that's rattling on mine,

I got a rattle somewhere on the right side of the car, either in the door or the vent/golvebox. When ever I listen to music I hear the rattle.
