December 18, 2005I have the same noise and it's driving me nuts. I have taken off all the heat shields and it's still there. Don't know what else to do.

May 2, 2006I have the same noise as well. I just rolled up the windows and turned up the radio. Until the performance goes down I am not going to worry about it. I will watch this thread and if there is a cheap fix I will do it. My heat shields were fine. It only does it when I light accelerate from a stop.
May 16, 2006i found the noise!! it was the to heat sheilds between the engine and tranny..less han 1/8 of an inch apart....shoved a thin piece of lead (chimminy flashing) in between and no more noise. i tried to silicone it first, but it kept breaking loose.
