1996 fordwindstar engine carpartment noise

Just wondering if anyone knows where this noise I am hearing is comming from.
The noise is like a rattle that comes and goes but at times constant. It sound like rattling an empty can of spray paint.

A little more info would help. For instance what engine the van has, where the noise is coming from, etc. For now all I can do is guess based on a spray can rattle. Try checking your oil and see if it's low. if it is, it usually causes your engine to knock a bit.
