Question Vibration dampener?

My 99 makes a bad rattle sound when excelerating, boyfriend thinks its the sound dampener(he said that they almost never need fixing) How do I check to make sure? What do I do to fix it?
When its in park it doesn't make a peep.
The boyfriend is a mechanic(with a 93yj) so I think with his help I can manage to not make anything worse

There is a heat shield over the catalytic converter and they are known to come loose and rattle. East to check...just wait till its cool, crawl under and see if it rattles when you move the shield. Good luck.

Could you further clarify that description? Harmonic balancer, perhaps?
