ENGINE RATTLING!!!

1997 Honda Accord

Noises problem
1997 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

When I am accelerating uphill, or sitting idling at a stoplight, or after I let off the accelerator up to 30 miles an hour the engine rattles loudly. When I brake to slow down for a stoplight the rattling begins.

The car drives great, accelaration is fine, transmission shifting is fine as well. I am overdue for an oil change but have put oil in the car since my last oil change.

Any thoughts?

The rattling is coming from the engine or a vibration?

It appears the rattling is coming form the engine, there is no viibration of the car.
