Default There is a rattle coming from the driver side of my 95 Honda Civic?

A few weeks ago my car overheated, on a bridge, it seems like the waterpump went, therefore the thermostat went, and the radiator cracked, they were all replaced (new parts w/belts), i did not have the car towed, i drove it about 10-12 miles since i couldn't get a tow truck on the bridge (only about 2-3 miles were with low coolant. the rest i had coolant in the radiator. well now here is a rattle, like somethin in a can coming from that side, my mechanic had it for 3 days and couldnt figure it out, its gotten a little louder .... now there is also a brief rattle when i accelarate like a loose license plate but its not coming from there its under the car. what can these 2 be, and are they related, what should i tell my mechanic to look for? . the car has 145,000 miles on it, its a vtec engine not much more i know, it runs fairly smooth a slight rough idle but the rattles are my biggest worries. ay help would be GREAT!! Thank you in advance for helping me.

That sounds like the shield on the catalytic converter.

It could be the CV joint, but that going bad and making noise would not likely be related to the work you had done. If it sounds like the ball bearing in a paint can rattling around when you take a corner under power, that is it. It could also be a loose heat shield, perhaps the one that protects the catalytic converter. Might even be the fan shroud, that could be loose as the mechanic either had to remove it or work around it to get to the radiator.
