On my 1990 E34 535i, whenever I accelerate there is always a ticking noise that stay until like 3,000 rpms+ then it goes away!! I just got the belts changed out and was wondering what it could be and if it was normal?!?!?! I never noticed it before or at least not too much cuz I usually have my mucis loud enough to where I cant heear a small noise!! Thanks for the help!!
Hi, I'm having the same problem did you ever get yours figured out? I suspect my driveshaft car has 140k miles transmission (5 speed manual) shifts fine already replaced flex disc and transmission mounts. I hear a ticking sound under hard acceleration never on highway or once car gets going at speed just when I shift and either acceleration or down shifting. I am going to get my deiveshaft from DriveLine Service of Portland heard these guys know what they are doing.
