Is that sound only there whenthe vehicle is moving? (Or is it there even when the vehicle is idling in park?

I sort of sounds like it coul be iin the driveshaft mount where it bolts to the transmission, but I need a little more info to narrow it down. Meanwhile checkthe transmission fluid just to eliminate that possibility.
