Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The issue that you are having is the overdrive band inside of the transmission, the band is starting to get weak which is what is causing the sound.
I am also a warranty inspector and i have inspected this issue many times.
The band would have to be replaced to correct this issue.
