The rattling sound can depend on where the sound is coming from. This can be loose muffler mounts if coming from underneath the car or other loose engine component mounts if coming from under the hood or potentially loose suspension components if coming from underneath the front of the car. The jerking may be related to what is called a mass air flow sensor which is a unit that regulates air flow into the intake as it is mixed with fuel prior to being injected into the motor. When this is not working correctly, this can cause the jerking problem you are describing. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the jerking and make repairs.
