Default Help me figure out this rattle noise coming from the engine

i have a 97 civic EX 5 spd, runs and drives normal but at idle i get this loud vibrating noise coming from the front, but once i hit the gas a little the noise goes away and once i let off it it comes back. my G/F has a 00 EX auto and it does the exact same thing. could it be a bad motor or tranny mount? im stumped. thanks for any help
