I hear a rattling noise that sounds like it is in the dashboard on the driverside,only when I reach 50 mph or greater. Please help me with this. What causes the catlictic converter to rattle, and is it distinguished beneath the car?

to check your catalytic conv. you just have to take a rubber hammer or something equivalent and hit the "cat" to see if it rattles if so you need to replace it
