2000 honda crv

Everytime I depress the accelerator I hear a noise that only stops when I depress the brake. It sounds like the noise is directly under the pedal. what’s causing this?

The engine?

Man, you have got to be more specific. Can you describe the noise?

sorry…it’s a rattling noise

The noise might be from a loose exhaust heat shield.

Take the vehicle to a local muffler shop, and ask that they check for a loose heat shield.
