Despite being hibernation season, I have been able to take my 04 out for a couple of spins when the snow and salt had thined down. Then Friday when we came home I heard a ticking noise loud enough to be heard both inside the car, and over the engine outside. This is about the 10th time this noise has reared its' ugly head. :willy: So I promptly went in and grabbed the cam corder and made a tape of the sound, as it comes and goes. I then set up an appointment with my dealer, this is the third time I have complained about this noise with the repeated "could not duplicate" or "normal driveline sound" responses from the dealership. I also discussed the shift lever rattle, and provided some of the posts from this site regarding how to deal with it. I also discussed the wheel shake that the car has, along with some more posts from this site regarding how to fix that also. My service rep responded with, well, unless we find that the problem is bad enough, there is not a lot we can do. :mad: I am going to wait until they get back to me tomorrow, but I was wondering, if they continue with their entirely hands off approach, is there anyone that you have found at Pontiac that might be able to intervene on my behalf, I would appreciate. :cheers
Thanks,
Todd

My understanding is that piston slap is during warm up. This sound is occuring well after warm up, usually after 15 minutes of driving. The sound speeds up with engine speed, and comes down as engine speed goes down to a very rythmic tapping. I just think that this is not a sound that should be coming out of a $33,000.00 car. :eek:
