My CEL came on yesterday, not beating on the car or anything. Popped the hood with it running and there's a rattling noise coming from the front of the top of the engine. Any ideas? Thanks.

Timing chain rattle?

Is it a kade? Its probably the timing chain. Theres is a little guide right underneath the front of the valve cover and the chain usually hits it. just take that off and it should stop that rattling. If not there is another guide further down the chain you can take off. as for the check engine light idk. my ka did the same thing
