I have a 2000 sport and I am experiencing the following problem when the car has been running for a long time at a high speed or with the AC on.

There is a metallic rattling that starts to occur and when I accelerate it is like a metallic whining sound (you know the sound that makes you go OH HELL if I hit the gas anymore the car is going to go to hell). When the car sits for a bit even idle (ie traffic jam) it will after about 15 mins go away or when the car is allowed to cool the sound doesn't come back until its run hot.

I'm assuming it is probably my catalytic converter, but the sound seems to be up near the front near the engine.. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

The best way ot describe a bad cat converter is that it sounds like you're shaking a coke can full of gravel. Is it maybe coming from your fan belt pullyes? Auto transmission? Any way you can stand outside and have somebody drive it slowly so you can pinpoint where it's coming from?
