Its a knocking sounds for sure. But not coming from the engine. Its like something is not catching at the gear shifter. It did it with the CSR not running just in the on position. Its completely random and has stopped since but did it on and off tmfor two days. It is a very loud knock.

Okay thank you .
I though you had a clicking noise which is common on this for the solenoid to fail and click on and off .
Sadly in your case I've no idea and will have to opt out and see if another expert can help you .
