A poorly tuned engine, or a component that needs replacement can make other things not work right and possibly lead to an unusual noise. Clogged fuel injector, bad fuel, all can attribute to strange noises. So, basically it is probably a good idea to first establish that your spark plugs, wires, rotor, cap, air filter, throttle body, fuel injectors, etc are all in good working order. poor plug wires can have a bad affect, some seem the think they last forever, they don't. Nor do coils, they last a long time, but do build up resistance eventually. Run some high quality fuel injector cleaner in you gas, and try to use better quality fuel such a mobil or chevron gas, gas such as am/pm gas is not a good thing imo. Ok, well, all of this may or may not pertain to the problem, but just make sure everything is in check here b4 you look elsewhere.
