Can you be more specific. The more details the better.

What type of sound? Clanking, ticking, tapping, howling? +1 on more details.

I agree. More specifics will help. Have you taken a look under the car?

I had a strange noise that made me think the transmission was going bad. I got up under there with a flashlight and found that the sound deadening material covering the transmission tunnel had deteriorated and some had fallen and was rubbing the flex disc. I cut it loose with my pocket knife and the noise was gone.

It sounds like it could be something like in the muffler but it only does the sound when its on first gear... I checked to see if the muffler was loose but its not

Wondering the same thing myself. Practically every thread he's replied to is two month+ old and long ago settled. We appreciate the input, but if it's 2 months since the last posting, you're pretty much wasting your time replying to it.

Interesting, though, the OP replied to his own thread nearly a year later with the same, unresolved, (and still lacking in detail) issue.
