Smile Ranger making rattling noise on upshift from 1st to 2nd

Hi everyone,
This will be my first post and I am going to start things off by explaining a small problem I have come across recently. While accelerating at around 2 to 2 1/2 rpm and shifting to 2nd gear, I hear a rattling in the engine compartment. It isn't loud but it's definately noticeable. I am unsure of the cause. I need to note that this is exclusively between 1st and second gear. Also, i forgot to mention that it is an auto tranny. I would have bought a stick had I found one...but I couldnt. Thanks for the help and hello, once again.

Welcome to FRF. It's probably a loose heat shield on the main cat.
