Strange Noise Around 3500 RPM

Hi All,

First post here. I have a 2014 1LT RS Camaro. Love it.

Lately it has been making a strange noise around 3K-3500 RPM. It sounds like it is coming from behind the dash on the passenger side of the car. I have it on video, but can't post it here. It sounds like whirring? (not really sure how to describe it). I have brought it to a couple dealers who hear the issue but can't tell me what it is. One of them wants $1900 to pull the dash to diagnose the issue. The dash has already been out twice for heater cores, so I'd like to avoid this. Does this sound familiar to anybody?

Thanks!

Danny

Sounds like an engine accelerating while going through the gears and some road noise. Normal sounds when driving a car to me.

Its a metallic rattling or sizzle over the top of the engine noise.

I heard it...turn up the volume fellas im on my laptop. It sounds kind of like a heat shield thats just barley loose.....see if you can crawl under with a rubber hammer and give your exhaust an other stuff a tap.

I hear it too. Kind of reminds me of when the bolt for my transmission vent tube (metal piece right by exhaust) disappeared and it would tap the exhaust. Was a horrid littler bugger.

Think I recall you can check it from under the passenger side mid car. Little metal tube just up against a rubber vent hose off trans. It then bends around by exhaust with a single bolt holding in place.

A 2014 with 2 heater core issues?, any idea what caused it.
I knew the earlier models had some heatercore issues was hoping that issue was fixed.

Hey guys,

Good thoughts. Will check the fire wall area and the transmission vent tube tonight.

The heater core went bad 6 months after I bought it and the dealer I bought it from messed up a bunch of other things while the dash was out, so it had to come out again. Just a faulty part, but a huge pain...
