"this was recommended by my ass.":lol:
i have duplicated all these conditions. whatever it is, it is not in my car. maybe i am lucky, or maybe manual trannies are not affected.THAT IS WHY I AM TELLING YOU FOLKS TO KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON THIS BECAUSE MORE THAN LIKELY IT IS IN YOUR CAR!!.
If you folks have tried and can't get the noise to happen it's maybe because you are passing through the 2000-2300rpm range too quickly. Even if you lightly acclerate past that range you won't hear it because the noise is transient and happens quickly. NOW, if you drive the car (remember, the car has to be on for atleast 15minutes for this to happen), and manage to acclerate lightly and consistently keep the acceleration at around ~2200rpm you'll get the noise to consistently happen. Its as if the sound or vibration resonates when you keep the engine rpm @ around ~2200 rpm. You have to keep your foot steady and keep the rpm in the range of 2000-2300rpm..
