95 Tracer Loud Vibration/Noise

I just bought a 95 Merc Tracer 1.9 engine 5 speed Sedan. It has 129000 miles . The problem is that when under hard acceleration in 1st or 2nd gear only from 2500 to maybe 4000rpm it makes a loud vibration/noise from under the hood. Sounds like its from the driver side but not sure. If I accelerate normally it will not vibrate nor will it in any other gear than 1st or 2nd. No vibration felt thru the pedals or steering wheel. At this time it only seems to be a big annoyance. Any thoughts or opinions would be very welcomed. Thanx ...Dave

Tough to say without hearing it. What do you know about the car's history?

I just bought the car at a dealer and dont have a history on it. With the car on jacks it will not vibrate when accelerating

Could be something rattling like a heat shield. However, there's no need to spool this thing up to 4k, it's probably got a 5k redline
