Have you checked the intake filter box to make sure nothing has gotten into it and is causing the noise like a leaf?

Does the noise occur as you are idling?

Does the noise sound like it is coming from one of the corenrs of the vehicle?

Have you tried to put the rear of the vhicle up in the air onjack stands, put in gear, and see if the noise increases still?
