Charcoal canister? Vacuum hoses coming out of it? Gas vent line going to it? A purge valve on it? Electrical connection going into this valve along with vacuum hoses? Looks like charcoal canister

My wife ran something over and knocked it off. Someone zip tied it back on but the hose that the wires hook up to was disconnected. It is the the charcoal filter. Would this cause may car to rattle at times while my foot is on the accelerator?

It could but it would be a plastic pvc sound against the metal. Is it your heat shield on your catalytic Converter? Or an exhaust rattle? Bad motor mount on your engine? The engine flexes when you throttle, it could be worn engine mounts?
