So recently I noticed that when I accelerate from stop once the engine is warm I can hear a short series of popping or cracking sounds coming from under my hood while the RPM's are still low. Once the RPM gets high enough (1500+) the noise is gone until I accelerate from a stop again.
Has anyone had an issue like this before? That isn't knocking is it?[/b]
That's odd. Knocking would sound like a knock. If it's popping that wouldn't be it. Have you tuned the car or done anything to it, or is it stock? A little more info about what you've done to it may be useful. Is the car under warranty? Have you talked to your local dealer about this?
