Customer Question
Second opinion] when accelerating...

Second opinion] when accelerating my 2005 rx8 in 2nd and 3rd gears I hear and feel a chattering noise from under the car. Any ideas what it might be?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

It's the original trans and what would the fuel filter have to do with this

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RX-8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I will be doing the work. So far I haven't done anything.
