Banging or Rattling sound???

There seems to be what you may describe as a vibration or rattling noise coming from the front passenger side (under the hood). The sound only occurs at idle/low rpm while the car is in gear. Im not for sure but I believe the sound either occurs when the brakes are applied or right after you let off of them. The noise goes away when you turn the steering wheel but once you stop turning it the noise restarts. Anybody have any idea what may be the cause of this???
