    hey, my car has developed a really odd knocking noise, it only happens on partial throttle holding speed around 40mphish in 4th, 5th, or 6th. Its difficult to describe but is not a metalic sounds, almost like something loose flapping around. I have had a look and cant find anything loose :shrug: was just wondering if anyone has had this problem or knows what it might be?

    thank you
