Engine makes a rattle like noise when revving between 1500 - 2000 rpm or on cold start. Sound appears to be come from around the A/C compress or behind. My brother loosen the belt attached to the compressor and thought it was unlikely coming from it. Here is a video that demonstrates the sound:

Watch with sound on. No check engine light

Head gaskets were done a little over a year ago. Recently had an o2 sensor replaced (check engine light went on when I had this issue).

Thanks for the help.
