Even though you have received many possible causes, I'll throw my hat in the ring and ask if it could be the heat shield that is between your cat converter and the floorboard. They rust away and rattle as the temp of the converter changes. Hope you find it.

One thing with that engine is if you have over 60,000 miles on it you may want to replace the timing belt. Looking at the engine I don't see how the timing belt could be making that noise. There are two pulleys that guide the belt but they wouldn't rattle. May be in the exhaust as taver91 says.
