odd noise form camaro

I have developed an odd noise that seems to eminate from the right side of the car around the undercarraige. The best I can explain it, is it sound like a flapping noise. It increase upon acceleration and decreases when slowing down. It stops completely when the car stop.

For those of you old enough, as kids we would hook baseball cards to the spokes of our bikes with a clothes pins. They would make a flapping noise.

The noise I am hearing on the Camaro is similar in sound.

I only have 5,000 miles on the car and this just started a few months ago.

Any idea what this might be?

Wife described as card in spoke as well

I had the same thing starting at about 3,000 mi. Everytime I brouhgt it by Fremont Chevrolet it wouold stop; finally a day before I was heading up to Sacramento; it got louder and permanent; only rotational (when moving). First they replace chims, and gave it back to me still making noise, but ordered Driveshaft. Retuned from Vacation; parts were in; same day service, been 2 months, and no problems. Turns out there is a bulliten on them

The problem was noise (tick, tick,tick), and vibration near the e-brake handle; Fremont Chevrolet replaced driveshaft!

I have developed some serious trunk rattle on acceleration the past couple of days. I checked the spoiler and it doesn't feel loose. looked around in side the trunk and nothing looks out of place or like it could be the culprit.

I just went in to dealer for an oil change and had them fix spoiler again ( nut comes loose and rattles when I close trunk, but spoiler not loose). You better bring it in; no telling what it could be!

Yeah, stopped in yesterday...it is the driver side muffler...Shop mgr said it sounds like maybe an interior heat shield is peeling and rattling...he could replace them, but back to stock only (I swapped to the LS3 mufflers)...I'm swapping again to the MRT 2.0 beginning of March so I will just live with it for a little longer...besides, it disapates when I speed up so I'll just use that as an excuse when I get pulled over!

Could be you left a Chevy mechanic on a crawler stuck under the car. Tell him you will let him out for lifetime free oil changes and alignments.

I have the same exact noise and vibration in e-brake. What the heck makes the driveshaft make a clicking noise I wonder.

Make sure there are no stickers hanging off the driveshaft. Sometimes a label can be hanging half off and flapping. Then there are a couple other bulletins, one for the driveshaft and another for axle washers for a clicking noise.

I have it too... I noticed the other day that it may be the window. It actually got a little warm out and I rolled the windows down. I'm so used to hearing it around 2500 - 3000 RPM and I was shocked.

I rolled up the window at the next red light. I took off like normal when green and there it was again.

I had the same noise, it ended up being a broken baffle in the muffler, it was under warranty but they said they had no idea how long it would take to get, so I decided to put the CAT backs on instead and after a month I finally got my warranty part.

Cool Followup on ticking noise

April 1 the car came out of storage and the ticking/clicking/flapping noise is still there. The best association I can describe is the noise is definately rotationally or speed related. I only hear it at under 30mph and normally only in forward gears 1 and 2. (manual shifter) I can sometimes hear it in reverse. It is not very loud, but just enough that it is annoying.

I do not believe the noise I am hearing is coming from the e brake.

I did notice on a rainy day the noise seemed to disappear and came back once dry again.

Someone mentioned and axle washer and while I am not a mechanic, that sounds like something that would be causing that noise from the location I seem to be hearing it. (right front wheel).

So if anyone can add to the likely source of cause of the problem, it would be much appreciated. I do plan to get it to the dealer, I just haven't had a chance yet. To the extent I can narrow it down, I think that would be helpful. But a good mechanic should be able to isolate it upon hearing it I would think.

Mine had the same ticking noise. It started yesterday I noticed it most when slowing down to a stop. I started hearing it at about 30 and as the car slowed so did the clicking. So I decided to crawl under there today to check it out. I found the culprit a loose bolt on the driveshaft right behind the transmission I removed all the nuts applied some loctite and retightened it’s as good as new no more clicking! So check those driveshaft bolts!
