This is about my daily driver. The GTA is in the garage in all this snow
I have an 85 Chevy Caprice with 343,000 miles on it ( yes 343,000) . Suddenly,

right of the dash
during acceleration, and also sometimes during deceleration, and also when in
Park, at about 1500 rpm. The noise comes and goes, but usually it is there
during high end of the gear during accleration. Sometimes not there at all,
even while accelerarting. It's an unevenly spaced click / snap sound, like a
At first, I thought my spark knock was coming back, but a spark knock doesn't
occur in neutral, and during deceleration. So I am thinking it might be :

speedo click in Park?)
It happens with and without the heater fan on.
I can't see anything unusual under the car or in the engine compartment. Have

Sounds like it is coming from the dash, but I guess it could be from the trans
I hope it's not the trans.
ANy ideas welcomed ! Thanks
