Unhappy Help car making bad sound.

Just last night as I was turning onto my street my car started to make some sorta rattling sound from the tranny/engine direction. I was hoping that this morning it would not be there but it was. So I left my car at home. I asked my friend to go take it out and see what he thought since I didn't get a chance. He IM's me with its only in 2nd gear that it makes the sound.

Now, what could this be???

Help!!!

Well, it could be what I had. Bad stearing rack.

At just the right times the seals would leak enough that they would make the car vibrate, sort of like the reed on a musical instrament.

I had to practice it but normally it would happen at very low speeds like when backing out of a parking space

If anyone knows of a used tranny w/ less then 80K near New York City that is a 2.2L 5speed I will take it.

Try to track down one of those import engine/tranny places. They usually have alot of cheap 5 speed with low miles. Id bet you could pay 600$ for a 5 speed that has less than 50k miles.
