The vacuum pump in these vehicles is known to have a rattle noise that sounds like it is in the engine. In order to get rid of the noise, the pump will likely need to be replaced. Before replacing the pump though, this diagnosis should be verified by a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
