Hi gary,

From your description, it could be popcorn banging around in your intake or it could be an exhaust leak. Could you describe it a bit more.

Is it a popping sound, or a tin rattle like a penny in a coffee can?
Can you hear it while driving? At all speeds? How frequent is the sound? Is it rythmic engine sound or a random sound?
