Mein Auto: 2010 X3
2010 X3 dragging/scraping noise

I've got a new problem with my X3 which has 170k miles. When the car is hot and in park I hear a dragging noise. I got under it today and it sounds like it's coming from the torque converter area.

It seem to quiet down when I put it in drive. Also it's intermittent in park.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Question is the engine running?

if so the items in motion are the engine of course, the torque converter, the transmission's front pump and possibly a starter drive gear and ring gear is hanging up from time to time.
