TS John Posted July 8, 2006 Share Posted July 8, 2006 So, I just got back to my sol after being away from it for a month. I told my folks to drive it a bit when I was gone and I guess they took the "bit" part a little too seriously. 60 miles in the whole month, and now it's making a weird noise when I accelerate through 2nd and 3rd gear. It's not constant, nor is it really loud (I can drown it out with my stock stereo system), but it doesn't quite sound healthy. Here are the details. Around 25 mph in 2nd gear (2600 RPM give or take) I'll hear it for about a second. Then I'll hear it again for about 3-4 seconds in 3rd gear in the mid 30s (about the same RPM range there too). The noise sounds like it's coming from below the cabin, perhaps even with me or even behind (sorry this is not really engine related, but I didn't see a section closer related). I would describe the sound as slighty grating, as if perhaps loose sheet metal was involved, rubbing against something. It's like holding a playing card in the spoke of a bicycle, except the playing card is made of metal. Thanks very much for anyone who takes the time to read this and give me their suggestions. I doesn't sound like a big deal, really, but anything that messes with the way my car sounds kills me, since the sound of my car is my favorite part about it.
