2001 Grand Cherokee Rattling noise from under the hood

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, straight 6 auto trans, everything stock, 164,000 miles. There is a loud metallic rattling sound coming from somewhere under the hood only when I press on the gas and accelerate. This happens at any speed or RPM. The noise stops immediately when I remove my foot off the gas pedal. No issues with performance or warning lights. Can anyone help? Any ideas?

I have the same car and the same issue

It is not the flex plate or bolts. The flex plate was replaced and the bolts tightened. It is worse facing up hill.

Have you managed to figure out the problem? If you do please post

Cheers

Is it sort of a continuous high pitched sound?
