drivetrain noise under hard acceleration in 1st (m (archive)

Posted by Dan S. on October 05, 2000 at 19:07:26:

sometimes, when accelerating hard in 1st gear (full throttle) i get a sort of thumping noise (relatively high frequency, and i can "feel" it as much as hear it) from under my right elbow in the drivetrain tunnel. it will happen in about the 5000-6000 rpm range. haven't asked the dealer about it, and it doesn't happen all the time (even under full throttle).

any thoughts? thanks in advance.
