Metallic noise

Have this metallic noise that is only around the 2000RPM range. This only happens while driving in any fear around said RPM. This noise pretty much goes away or is greatly reduced after driving a few minutes. Its not really a whine, it's metallic, like metal in metal. Is that the clutch? Thanks

Re: Metallic noise

I had the same thing and it ended up being some bolts that had come loose on my exhaust. Check all bolts and make sure they are good and tight. Id bet that is the culprit. Also, if you have cats the heatshields on them are prone to coming loose and making a very similar noise so I would check there as well

Thanks, I'll check that out tonight. Did your pretty much go away as the car got warmer too?

It could have been that just by the simple fact that metal expands when it heats up.

So the shields could be resonating with the motor or motor/drivetrain in motion. The part expands and changes the resonance. K, will check all this out. Thanks to you both

Gonna check mine out Tuesday cause we had some serious rain today (daily driver). I'm hoping it's something like this.

I checked things underneath while changing oil last night. Everything seems good. Were the heat shields you mentioned the ones on the cats? If so, they seemed tight. Exhaust was good to. Is there anything engine related I could check? Transmission related? Thanks!

Does the noise go away when you press in the clutch? Or can you reproduce it when you rev the engine to 2k with it in neutral while stopped?

I'll try 2k unloaded tomorrow morning. It will stop when you put the clutch really cause the RPM gets out of that ~2000 range. The sound is only when it's cold. It goes away after maybe 5min of driving. Unless I hear it tomorrow morning unloaded at 2k, it has only been when you are in gear and driving with the engine in that RPM range. It's definitely a bother. Doesn't seem likes it's gotten any worse, but it's loud enough I think people notice it out of the car.

Checked it out this morning when it was cold. Now noise/metallic sound is present when increasing RPM from idle out of gear. Driving, it doesn't matter what gear, it's always right around 2000RPM range in any gear.

Did your noise go away once it was warm (3 to 5 minutes? Noisy at certain RPM? Just curious. You'd think the TOB noise would not go away when it warms up.

Re: Metallic noise

I heard it through the entire RPM band. And it got really loud when i stepped on the clutch. Take your car in and have it inspected. hearing any metal on metal noise is not good.
