No shift delay coming out of park, etc. It also has no whine and no particulates in the fluid. Open to suggestions though if it's a seemingly known issue. My father's PT cruiser made this sound before it chucked a CV joint. An old Saturn I had made this noise before it chucked a wheel bearing.

The only thing that makes me think that it's not a wheel bearing is that it doesn't change when turning. In the past I've had the sound fade/get worse when turning left or right.
