Noise when accelerating
Ok, i don't usually come here for help since i never really get many responses to my threads, but this issue is starting to piss me off. I have a 2005 3.5 5A/T with about 57,000 miles and i just recently started having a few problems. When the car is accelerating, and i hit 2500-3000 rpm, i hear a sound that's kinda like a scraping or a hiss. I took it to the dealer because i have an extended warranty for like 4years/100,000mi.
The first time i went, the tech took a ride with me and he said he couldn't hear the sound. I drove and he drove, but yet he claimed he couldn't hear it. He said to bring the car back when the sound gets louder.
I've been reading alot about timing chain issues, so i took the car back the next week and had them look at the chain and tensioners. They said that those were fine, but while they were in there, they noticed that i had 2 broken motor mounts. They said that it could be what's causing the noise. I'm no fool and i know that broken motor mounts aren't the culprit. But i had those fixed anyway, and on my way to pick up my wife, I still hear the same noises.
I'm going back again next monday and i'm gonna make those bastards drive around with me until they hear what i hear. But can anyone think of anything that could be the problem so i can have them specifically check that when i go? Could it be an exhaust leak? Tranny going? Engine going? Sorry for the long post...
