I have a 2007 Jeep Liberty and it started making a rattling

Customer Question

I have a 2007 Jeep Liberty and it started making a rattling noise when accelerating. The higher the rpm's the louder the noise. When it shifts it goes back down then gets louder the more I accelerate.
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: Under side of the engine
JA: Are you fixing your Liberty yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: When I was out of town my mother added oil to my vehicle and it was running over a quart high. so all i have done is changed the oil and the oil filter
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no
