    Angry Rocks in teh transmission?!?

    I have a 01 WS6 A4. When I accelerate hard on my car there is a random ticking noise in the car. It sounds like a little rock in the transmission. now its only after 4000rpm's and the pedel needs to be floored. car wont make noise when you rev the engine or even at a quick acceleration. only when i mash the peddel down. I dont know..........any ideas????........... ohh i had the rear end leeking a few months back, and I had pontiac replace all the bearings and seals...could it be back there??....I dont know, but it sounds like its comming from the drivers side of the engine...hard to tell......let me know what you think. thank you.

    could be a bad motor mount and the exhaust is hitting under torque...or a tranny mount and the DS is hitting something

    Rocks and ticking sounds. Sounds like detonation. Cheap fuel? do you use 87?
    Maybe a cat eliment that broke and is ratling at high exhaust flow rates?
