Default Re: subtle "rod knock" like sound, but the pattern is wrong

And I do have one of those stethoscopes. I'll try the next time I can get under the car. It may be hard to localize the sound when listening to something as loud as the transaxle. If I can't find it on my own soon, I'm thinking of asking Ernie to check it out. I don't think there's anyone on the forums here who have been around since the early 2000s, but there used to be a Tech forum (it's still here, just dormant). Ernie's a guy who was a frequent poster here under the username "sattech" who helped out a lot of people. He was also a senior tech at Saturn of Norwood, Massachusetts and the guy who serviced my cars most of the time back when there used to be a Saturn corporation. He is now a tech at another GM dealer somewhere in southeastern Massachusetts.... and I am in touch with him via Facebook. Thankfully, his dealership is not a SASP, so I can avoid the usual malarkey.
