confused Weird rattle

Hi guys im new here,

Ive got a 93 ED futura, great car, just when the car is in either drive or reverse, there is a weird rattle, coming from underneath the car, and from what i can tell, the middle section of it. as soon as i accelerate, the rattle goes away. also, in park or neutral its silent.

i cant figure it out nor any of my mates... has anyone got any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks
