Hello all!

For a short while now, my 2001 manual Insight has been making a rattling noise when I accelerate or am holding the gas pedal down to maintain speed going uphill, say, and the RPMs are around 2K. This is accompanied by a slight vibration as well. Fuel economy has been good (64 MPG going up to the Adirondack Mountains and back from Southern NH recently). When I bought the car, it was "vetted" by a Honda dealer and I was told it was in great shape except for the dust cover, which looked like it had a big crack that was fixed with putty or something, and sloppily at that. I went over an excessively large speed bump and felt the car bottom out a bit, and that is when the noise started. Could it be this or something else?
