When the car is stopped at say a light stop sign or just pulling out of a parking spot. If I barely accelerate just enough to get like 1500 RPM's and shift into second gear and same into 3rd it seems like the car doesn't have enough power to hold that gear on the change, resulting in a almost grinding noise" kind of like static almost only for a few seconds. Its been happening sense I bought the vehicle used at around 86K miles at about the same rate every time no real change. Though I have noted it occurs like 3 seconds long instead of the brief 1 second immediately following an oil change but just once then back to the usually. I have read a lot of people complaining about this on forums throughout the internet, and somewhat surprised it is not on here. An example of the noise is on this link www.youtube.com/watch"V=jhxcwxtqcak I really don't something bad to come of the car from this noise for I love this car it is really fun to drive and likes to get up and go when it needs to especially for a 1.5L regularly aspirated engine.
