I have an 01 PT Cruiser, chrysler, 58,000 miles. That has recently starting making an irregular knocking sound. For days I will hear nothing and then at times when I am stuck in traffic for a while I will start hearing and feeling a knocking sounds. I can feel it right under my feet and it does not knock faster or slower with excelleration. It seems to be without pattern. It does not knock when I am turning the wheel or anything - just in a straight line after being in slow or stop-and-go traffice for a while.
When I speed up it slows down or stops completely. But then I may not hear it again for days.
AT first it was so irregular that I thought I was dragging something - also because I can feel it under my feet when it knocks. But I am not dragging anything.
