I have a 2001 2.1 GLS Jetta, Automatic. 180,000 miles

It's making a strange noise, semi metallic sounding, like change rattling in the engine compartment, while either sitting or driving, at 1950-2200 RPMs and anything over 3500 RPM's. But besides those two sets of RPM's it runs fine, no noises at all... I have no idea what it is. Any ideas??

Try checking the lower air dam bolts and retainers. I had this issue on an '02 and it turned out to be just the lower airdam that you remnove to get to the oil filter from below.
