So I checked the engine bay and nothing is loose or anything.
Looked under the car and saw my heat shield there but doesnt look loose.
Any suggestions? Sorry first time owning a car (just don't want it dieing on me)

And no I havent checked just yet. I will do in a bit.
Any other suggestions would be great as well :)

Does it also happen when not in gear ? Have you checked upper trans mount (drivers side), and lower dog bone trans mount ? Either could be to blame for dampning problem.

Also should state that the rattling sound, sounds like its coming from the left side (driver side)

Interesting ... a couple of things come to mind.
Well, on my SVT when I first got that chatter, it was the heat shield hitting the exhaust.
So, do you have any loose items in your engine that you have checked?
Second, was the thought of a maybe a light weight flywheel or upgraded clutch.
Because it sounds like Clutch chatter ... common sound on upgraded clutches.
But I have also read that could be the clutch springs may not be pushing as good as if new.
These are suggestions, and hopefully you find your issue with not much hit to your wallet. And hopefully others will suggest some other theories to help you out.

Weird Rattling Noise
I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZTS (5 spd, Ztech DOHC 2.0 L) that I Just bought from a Dealer with only 191,036 KM on her. She has been Running Beautifully
But just recently I have been listening to it more carefully to hear anything is not normal.
I Found that my Ford will Rattle when First taking off (1st gear) and When up-shifting Rattles too. (Low RPMS, between 815 - 1500) also Will sometimes Rattle when in Idle with Foot off Clutch, but when I put my foot on the Clutch the Rattling Goes away.
Im hoping it is Nothing Serious, I will post some links to the Video's I Have done tonight with the Noises. (I Talk a lot, so ill just Post the Times of the Sounds)
http://youtu.be/PEstyHwpKBU?t=1m25s (Rattle when in Idle)
-Hoping its just a TOB or something as simple as a Heat Shield
http://youtu.be/PEstyHwpKBU?t=4m30s (Rattling when Low RPM/Shifting)
-Hoping its just something Simple...
http://youtu.be/nuOhG-okxMs?t=20s (Rattling at Low RPM 2)
http://youtu.be/nuOhG-okxMs?t=45s (Rattling at Low RPM 3)
http://youtu.be/nuOhG-okxMs?t=3m55s (Going up Driveway Rattle)
The Rattling is Just Noticeable when the Radio is off, and the Blower Fan is off and it is Audible within the Cabin.
Help me out please! As I don't feel like spending money at a dealership to get it looked at, although I will if necessary!
