From a cold start, as the drive takes up there is an easily audible "rattling, spinning" type noise that seems to come from the auto gearbox (or at least the drive-train somewhere) as the engine warms up the noise reduces, but never entirely goes away. A dull background rumbling at high (motorway) speeds.
This began around 10000 miles ago and got progressively worse, but has remained fairly stable recently. I am a bit worried that this may develop into something expensive.
At all low revs the engine (out of gear) remains fairly quiet for 104000 miles.
Apart from this the drive from the automatic transmission seems to be absolutely normal, the kick-down, overdrive on/off etc all work correctly.
have the same problem?
