Greetings! Our 2001 Focus 2.0 Zetec recently turned 212k miles. We bought it in January and it was supposed to be my son's car but he doesn't want to drive a stick. Too bad for him because I am having lots of fun with it! [twothumbs]

I noticed recently that when accelerating in 2nd gear (sometimes 3rd) between 1800 to 2000 rpm there is a noise and it sounds like a rattling/grinding/rubbing sound. It goes away when above 2000 rpm. I don't think it's anything loose because it only happens in these gears. A friend thinks it might be synchro? Any idea what might be causing this problem? Thanks.
