I was recently given a 96 passat glx vr6 by a family member who purchased it new. The car is mint. However, every once in a while when it shifts from third to second it makes a sound like a popsicle stick in a bicycle wheel. I was wondering if anyone else with an auto has had a similar problem? I was told that the trans or something around the trans has made this sound for last 50K miles. The car has 94K miles and the trans shifts like new with no hesitation or hard shifts either. Even when the sound occurs it doesnt affect the trans...strange. Do you think that there could be another part that is loose and vibrates at certain rpms?

I plan on doing a manual transmission swap in the near future anyway but I was just curious what it could be. For now I will just leave it alone and hope it doesnt grenade on me before I do the swap. Thanks for the response.
