If your gears are not shifting properly, there is a fault in the transmission that would have to be diagnosed. It would be a good idea to start by checking your transmission fluid level. If the level is too low, that can certainly be a possible cause of your shifting difficulty. Then, upon inspection, it could be determined whether the rattling is related to the transmission problem you are having. I would recommend contacting a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who can inspect your vehicle and diagnose both your rattling sound and your difficult shifting problem.
