I have a rattling noise coming from the front right side of my car. It seems to happen the most when I go to accelerate. At first I thought that it may be a stick stuck in my tire, but its not. If you can picture what that would sound like, that is the noise that I am hearing. Also as a side note, today we got a massive rain shower and it seems to happen most when it rained really hard; not so much when its dry, however it stil happens. Also It seems to make a lot of noise going over bumps and such things. Any help is great. Thanks

Check the serpentine belt condition and the auto-tensioner.
