Kitchen Faucet Rattling

My kitchen faucet rattle in the facet itself when I turn it on fully. I can turn it down and it quites but I have very little water pressure then. The old faucet started doing this and I replaced it with a brand new one and the same thing is going on. I've checked the aerrorator(sp) and it's clear. Water pressure to all the other faucets is great, just the kitchen is action up...I'm at my wits end on this one...never had this to happen before....please.HELP !

Make sure shutoff valves are full open. Is it a single handle faucet?? Sometimes the washer in the faucet or shutoff will vibrate, if loose, as water passes thru the opening. This is not usually the case with single handle faucets, but it can happen in the shutoff valve.

IT is a dual handle faucet and it happens when either cold or hot is on.

Does it have a sprayer?? If yes, the diverter could be vibrating. Clean out the aerator, not likely the problem, but who knows.
