    Hello all. Before I take it into the dealer, thought i'd post and see if I
    could get more info on what I might need to have done on my car.

    The car has 72,000 miles. Recently, i've noticed that when I start the car,
    I can hear a rhythmic clicking that sort of sounds like the timing belt
    rubbing against something. It's hard to describe. I guess the best I can do
    is to say it's a rhythmic noise. The noise only appears when I'm in park.
    When I'm in drive and stopped, I don't really hear it. The car is fairly
    smooth when in drive when stopped.

    Anyone know what this might be? Is this normal as the car ages? Not sure I
    want to fork out 80 bucks for diagnostic if it's nothing. Thanks for your
