Stepping on the gas & hearing a noise

When I step on the gas (after the Jeep is warmed up) I hear a metal like noise. But the longer I step on the gas, the noise goes away. Until l stop the car and then again, I hear the noise when I step on the gas. This has been going on for about 10,000 miles, and it's at 62,000 miles now. 2007 JK 4 door

Any ideas???

Well, considering the mileage you have experienced this, it's not very serious or you would have experienced a breakdown at some point. It's hard to diagnose "noise". Especially since I can't hear it from where I am. I would think that it's no big deal, and that I wouldn't worry about it.

Manual? Or auto?

The noise goes away as the Jeep picks up speed?

Could be pinging from expecting too much in too high a gear.
If that's the case, you need to look into it.

Could be as simple as some tin rattling underneath, too.

I was thinking pinging too, but shouldn't the computer compensate?

Its the heat shield above the muffler... The welds suck. They break. Costs me $100 at the dealer to find that out. Happened twice. I just bent it back myself and saved the money the second time. The metal sound is the shield vibrating on the exhaust when you accel. Same thing happened to me. Just bend it back. If you have a welder you can more permanently fix it. I dont.

Would a high temp silicone kind of "glue" it in place?

Not necessarily the heat shield. My JK has AWFUL pinging.

OP: Is the noise happening at a certain RPM EACH time? If so, it might be some exhaust resonance, like the heat shield mentioned above. If not, it could be pinging. (spark knock)

If its the catalyst than not sure if the glue can stand that heat...

The computer's ability to reduce pinging has its limits.

The Jeep is an Auto. Thanks for your ideas.

I just seem to hear the noise when I first step on the gas. I'm starting to hear it more often when I'm going faster and step on the gas. That's a girl answer, huh?!!

Yeah, that sounds like spark knock. Try running Premium for a couple tanks and see if that helps. If it goes away with the premium, then you know thats the problem. I have no idea how to fix it.

Sounds like maybe the easier try. I'll try that first.

PS - LOVE the Rangers, too!
