Rattle noise

Hey guys, i have a 2000 and for about a week or so i have had this annoying rattle coming from underneath my truck and it sounds like it is coming from the near my front right wheel. Oh it is only when i am at idle and stop lights and such, it stops when i accelerate and while driving. PLEASE HELP!

I didn't say the heat shield for the tranny. I simply said "a heat shield".

Okay, since that rattle noise started my truck has been vibrating like crazy when im stopped at lights or whatever. Well on my way home from work today i was merging onto the freeway from another highway and i went to accelerate and my engine made a terrible almost grinding noise. My dad came and got me and towed my truck back to work and we took the tranny out and stuff and what the problem is was that my flywheel has like 5 or 6 cracks in it! WTF!? I will post a picture of it when i bring the camera back home, we were in shock that it had so many.
