It sounded like a belt slipping at first and now it sounds like something is trying to open and close?? It's almost directly under my short ram intake maybe six inches towards the front of the car and sometimes it's loud.Hasn't hurt performance and no idiot lites have come on.Weird ,I know there are no belts on that side but I can't for the life of me figure it out.Doesn't change rythym when I accelerate stays exactly the same when the car is running.Any ideas guys this is buggin the hell outta me??? Thanks

Theres nothing wrong with the six speed. Like I said it's been going on for 2 weeks now and nothing has been affected other than the annoying sound. It sounds like something rotating though and it's always even,like claclack,claclack,claclack,claclack.....never speeds up or slows down??? I'm thinking it might be electrical??? I don't know.

It's the IMRC making that noise.
Most likely, the DSI clip is broken, and the IMRC is continually pulling the cable trying to switch the runners.

I'd unplug the IMRC until you can get it fixed, or you run the risk of damaging the unit.
Most likely, you will get a CEL when unplugging it though.
BTW, any warranty left on your car?
If so...let the Dealer fix it for ya. [;)]

Sweet. Time to make it pay off. [;)]

Here's a few related threads I found, just to familiarize yourself with the system.
