well got in my car today pulled out slow and just shifted into 4th gear, had the windows up and the radio off and thought i heard something come from the driver's side of the engine. i matted the car going about 25 and started to hear what sounded like a lifter tick. don't know what's wrong but i think i may need to take my car into the dealership.

anyone else have this problem, its pretty faint, and only from about 1000-2500rpms. i only have 30,000 miles on my car.

Well, at 25mph in 4th you may get a little rattling sound just because you're in a pretty high gear at low speed. Mine does it too.

knocking or chattering

Mine does this and it drives me nuts!?! At around 1500 to 1800 rpm 25 to 45 mph in 4th, 5th or 6th. It is barely audible but I hear it. I always use premium and I have ran Zmax treatment without any change. It kind of sounds like the cylinders are knocking or pinging but as I said, it's very faint. I can hear it better with the windows up. Any suggestions other than what's already been posted?
