Rattle under acceleration 14 TH 3.2L

Hi all new to the forum, Having a bit of annoying sound coming from 14 TH. It started right around 13,000 Miles, and i have 18,000 miles on it now. 14 Th with a 3.2l. it has been to the dealer multiple times to try to track down the noise. It sounds like an exhaust rattle, but every time its in they tell me they either can't hear it or the other thought is that its an engine ping, so i was told put a few tanks of higher octane in and no difference. any help would be greatly appreciated if any of you have come across with this sound and what was the fix. thanks ken

What octane were you running with the rattle or ping and what higher octane did you go to?

Re: Rattle under acceleration 14 TH 3.2L

From the time i bought it from last November i was running 87 octane and the last month or so running 93 octane. According to the manual you can run 87 -89 in the 3.2l . So I'm not sure what really would have started the rattle and the rattle also comes and goes upon starting too, not just acceleration meant to mention that in the original post.
