When I start my car and back out of the driveway or drive out of a parking lot, my car makes a sheet metal or tinny noise when I accelerate. Once I am driving at a constant speed, the noise goes away. The noise seems to come from underneath the car, mostly on the right side. Recently, I had my car in for a # 3 service that includes inspection of the belts, exhaust, manifold, brakes. I am not sure if this noise was there before the service was done. It seems that my car needs to have been stopped for a while before start up. The noise seems to occur more often when accelerating after a right turn.
