On the way to work I have been hearing a snapping and a crackling... almost like rice crispies or that popping candy stuff. I have been hearing it when I stop at stop lights, but, it might happen while in motion and I just havn't picked up on it because of the wind noise and the engine's volume.

I have also been hearing a high-pitch ringing, that goes away after about 40 seconds, when I start the car after it has been sitting for awhile. I already wrote a topic about the ringing, some say it's my secondary air pump?

Anyone know what the noises might be?

Thank you guys for your help. I might be in over my head with this car. The payments are high and it has been having problems mechanically as well. Thank you to everyone who has helped bring ideas about my car, and its weird behavior, to the surface.

I think I will take it to the dealership for a check up--hopefully I won't be sent to the poor house in return. :sad:
