Default Mechanical or engine problem

I just got my 2001 back from the shop a few weeks ago. It had been in an accident involving an even bigger truck re-arranging my front end. I've been hearing a kind of hollow rattle sound coming from the front end, almost like rattling a coffee can while riding on rough roads and occasionally when the engine shutters. What the heck could it be?? It's just loud enough to notice with the radio off and it's driving me nuts!!

It could be anything really. Check to see if the body shop left any tools in there. I 've seen stuff like that happen before lol!

amen to that! im always finding tools under my hood that ive left in there after a few to many cold ones

could also be something not bolted up all the way like a heat shield, fender flare, inner fender guard, bumper/bumper cover, fan shroud, ect....

good luck i hate rattles.
