I have a noise that recently started, prior to this the engine was quite quiet and I heard no unusual noises.
The noise sounds like a fan hitting somethings or a box with items in it tumblng around. Something like you would here from the lottery ball machines when numbers are being selected - the air forces the balls to bounce around and the balls randomly bump against the box they are in. The dealership here in Udon Thani said the noise is normal. but it doesn't sound remotely normal to me. The sound seems to increase with slow acceleration, but can not really be heard when it is floored - likely because the engine noise drowns it out. I suspect the noise is still there. I have the noise when just starting out or even when I have driven several clicks. It does not stop. Does anyone have a similar experience? Oh, the LTZ has an auto stick also along with the regular auto transmission. Noise happens when using either. Also, can hear it when idling.
