i asked this question awhile back and only received one reply which stated it sounds like a possible u-joint, which i had checked and have since and it seems solid. okay, this might be gay, but it's the only way i can describe in through words, it's a tink/clink type of sound and is really easy to hear when shifting between drive and reverse, but i've also noticed it when i take off in drive, overdrive,..so forth, i've noticed that it seems to be coming from the inside casing of my tranny, and ideas? i've only had manuals before my a4 so i'm just not familiar with auto's. any feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Have you looked at the tranny mount and the torque arm mount. I am just throwing out any suggestions I can think of honestly. Its really hard to diagnose over without being around the car

do you have an aluminum driveshaft? if so, this tink noise is coming through the driveshaft when the transmission is engaging into forward/reverse. it does it in both of my cars and they have aluminum driveshafts.

you know what, it does have an aluminum drive shaft, so it's somewhat of a normal occurance then? thanks for the replies fella's it's appreciated, also Y2K i'll take your advice too and check out the mounts.

I had a similar sound when going from R to D or downshifting etc etc. I had a shop check out the U-joints and they said they where fine. Next weekend I pulled the shaft, beat out the joints and could see a little bit of wear inside 2 of the bearing caps (not sure if that the technical name). I replaced with new and problem fixed!!!

I have a 2000 LS1 aluminum ds in my GTA. It tinks like you all describe. It has all new u-joint in it to. Funny though, my old 1LE aluminum ds never did that.

if you have a DS safty loop it could also be your y-pipe hitting it... mostly caused by a bad trans bushing...
