Hi Paul, thanks for the response.
It's definitely more heavy and metalic, almost gutteral. And I looked at the rpms more closely, and I have a correction to what I said in the original post: I hear the noise starting out in Park, just after I turn the car on; when I shift from Park to Neutral, the noise goes completely away; when I shift from Neutral to Drive, the noise comes back, and louder; when coasting in Drive, the noise is loud, as well as when the gas is down, BUT the noise goes completely away in Drive past exactly 1,100 rpm. (Not 1,800-2,600rpm I originally said).
I tried keeping the car in 1st gear to see if it was a gear problem (as opposed to when the rpms reached a certain point) and the noise still went away when I passed 1,100rpm in 1st gear.
Any thoughts? Thanks again for the advice.
