Hi,

So there's a noise that's happening when the engine is around 2000rpm.

There seems to be a few cases of it online, but I'm unsure what the correct fix is:

Our local mechanic says you can remove the heat shield that is in the manifold... Another mechanic says you need to replace it.

This online guide says that you just need to put in a screw that will hold it down. Link

Did anyone hear of this before?

Thanks

The link you posted is talking about an intake manifold and as far as I know there is no heat shield on the intake the heat shield is on the exhaust. Which manifold is rattling?

Okay, its definitely the intake manifold. Maybe it isn't the "heat shield" but something else.
