1998 Dodge Intrepid engine noise. Any ideas?

Hey everyone. Was driving around today when this issue started happening. It usually only kicks in after about 3 - 5 mins of driving. No noticeable smell associated with this problem. No loss of power in the engine or effect on the handling.

It sounds like a rattling and seems to be coming from the front of the engine compartment / closest to the bumper.

I have a video of the issue on youtube but it doesnt seem to want to let me post it.

Thanks!

Thanks for the info!

Although my issue doesn't seem to be effected at all by heavy acceleration or the breaks or anything besides just coming on about 3 - 5 mins into a ride.

After driving to a friends house it came on, after about 4 mins in the car, we pulled into his driveway, kept the engine running, opened the hood to look at where the noise was coming from, it persisted for about 2 - 3 mins, and then it went away, back to normal engine idle sounds.
