What kind of 'rattle' are you trying to describe? Is it simply 'annoying?' Does the wheel itself feel 'loose?' It could be something as simple as a loose wire that runs inside the column up to loose steering linkage. If you have any doubts as to the seriousness, get it to a shop ASAP!

You have to remove the steering wheel ,lockplate, turn signal assembly and you will get to four bolts that are loose. Go to your local auto patrs store and tell them you need the special tool (lockplate removal tool and steering wheel puller)for GM steering colums.
By loose, I assume you mean that the entire steering column is loose. That requires you to remove the steering wheel (wheel puller required) and also digging through several layers of electrical components: first layer is the turn signal. second layer is the ignition. third layer is the high beam. After the third layer, you should see 4 torx bit screws that secure the steering column. Tighten those torx bit screws and the column will no longer move up and down. If you mean the steering wheel is loose, as in there is a lot of play in the turning, then you need to adjust the rack and pinion in the engine bay.

I am not sure this is the trouble, if you remove the cover on the steering wheel there will be a large nut if this nut is tight the splines on the wheel could be bad, might be looking at replacing the column, or the steering wheel. I the nut is loose simple tighten and replace cover.

What it would cost to fix your steering column depends on what is wrong with it and you did not tell us. The tilt steering column in my 1989 GMC Suburban became loose in the tilt mechanism. I was quoted as much as $125.00 to fix it, but I shopped around and got it repaired for $60.00. Unless your steering column has the same problem that number is probably useless. I would suggest you call several shops and get a quite to fix it.
A 2003 Ford F-250 column gear shifter can be fixed by simply tightening it again. You can tighten it by turning the adjustment wheel on the lower right side of the steering column.
This is a common problem for the Taurus. It is actually loose hardware in the lower side of the steering column. A good fix is to take the steering column completely apart and reinstall all hardware with Loc Tite. If you are lazy, you can rock the steering wheel while a friend turns over the ignition.

First you must remove the horn pad, then check to see if the large mount nut is loose. If it is tight, probably a column bearinmg problem.
The first cause of the jump out from one to other gear is the loose shifter fork, which connects the shifting linkage and gears of the transmission. The second cause is loose shifting linkage itself, which connects the gear shifting knob and shifting fork. The shifting linkage and shifting fork become loose due to the rapid changing of gears from one gear to other at high speed of vehicle. The third cause is the misalignment of shifting linkage to the shifting fork.
