Hey everyone! I have another question.

I own a 2.7 L v6 Santa Fe, 2004 with almost 50k miles on it.

When I accelerate and hit approximately 1.9k RPM I can hear a light grinding noise underneath the car. This happens both in 2nd and 3rd gear. So as it's accelerating up I can hear it, and when the car shifts up and the RPMs drop it will make the noise again as it passes through the same RPM range.

The noise is always there at 1.9k to approx 2.1k RPMs.

Also of note is that the sound is either gone or significantly reduced after driving around for a while. I don't notice it after freeway driving, for example.

Any ideas? Thanks guys!
