2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Question: I have a weird clanking sound under my hood.

my clanking has a rhythm to it. sounds like something is bouncing off of something. when i accelerate it goes faster. I have checked around the fan and its not there. everything you can see (without removing anything) is tight and fine. when i turn my car on it starts and continues to get louder if sitting. when im driving you can hear it inside the car. I can also feel it slightly with my feet. please if you have any ideas that would help.

    Farm'em out or be way to busy to even fool with it, no money in them big jobs anymore, like you say get it 'fixed' and out the door! People think with an engine/trans swap they got a whole new vehicle! That's getting worse too seems to me. Not much common sense out there nowadays! Well i guess they just dont know nothing bout cars anymore, as seen on here by the questions we get! No reflection upon this one of course!
