Default Re: Loud Rattling sound coming from engine when I rev the throttle

... only problem is now when I try to get up to speed and really rev the engine , there is a really loud rattling noise that is really annoying and also when I just let the engine idle it shuts off ...

any ideas what might be going on ? thoughts ?
Might be Marley's ghost. What kinda engine ya got?
