Default Weird sound coming from engine bay. Please help

Hey guys,

I have an 04 civic. The past month or so, when I am driving, I hear this weird sound coming from the engine. It kinda sounds like what you would get when you would put a soda can on the back tire of a bicycle. I only hear this rattling sound when I am accelerating. As soon as I take my foot off the gas, it goes away. I don't hear it while braking either; just when my foot is on the gas....Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated !!

A soda can on the back tire of a bicycle? What ??

Maybe there is a soda can stuck in a wheel well or something?

Seriously though, get your valves checked out. When was the last time you had them adjusted and inspected?

It's a most likely a lifter or valve issue if he you do come back
