It's normal for the trans to rattle at an idle in neutral. The engine is actually accelerating and decelerating as it fires and then hits the next compression stroke. This is transferred to the transmission, where it rattles all thegears back and forth against each other. When you pull the clutch in, you disconnect the trans, so the noise stops. Not a problem.
