Toyota Repair/Noise/Rattle during acceleration

I wrapped the zip tie around the transmission cable and wire bracket but this did not cure the rattling in reverse; more pronounced with a cold motor and fast idle. Check to see if the air intake snorkel is banging on the rad support. I cut a pc of foam pipe insulation and installed it between the two parts.No more weird rattles.

Unrelated; Computer Science Degree. My experience has been self taught, always learning. I am not a parts replacer! I've seen way to many parts replaced by shops or individuals that don't have a clue, eventually I get called to resolve the issue. Most of the time its something simple like a bad ground, broken wire, gas cap, or dirty sensor(02 or MAF), etc. Sensors are there to send a signal back to the computer that something is off slightly, that doesn't mean the sensor is bad!
