What I can see for a high pitched rattling noise that intensify during accelaration is the ring noise.
It can be caused by a worn ring or cylinder. Other causes included broken piston ring land and too little tension of the ring against the cylinder wall.
Ring noise correction requires ring, piston or sleeve replacement. In most instances it will require boring the cylinder.
When a vehicle overheat, anything can happen within the engine events for few minutes.I'm not sure if that has caused the problem.
If the oil pressure is good, then the problem may be the rings.
