Set up the video camera for this one, this could be one of those "me and
my brother-in-law tried this once" moments. LOL :)
But may be a good way to try and isolate area of noise.
Describe the noise very specifically ; is it a whir, a knock, a hiss, a
clicking, a vibration, high pitched/low pitched,etc ??
Have you tried this : Have a driver sit in the suv with trans. in Drive,
parking brake on, foot on the brake pedal, and chocks in front of the
wheels ...and as the driver gives it bit of gas... you stand to the
side of the car with the hood open and listen .
REPLY: The O.P. did this , and he emailed me. He said the noise
occured. Theres nothing wrong with doing it this way, so long as safety
is considered above all else.
