Try to find out exactly where its coming from by using one or both of these old timer tricks.
Get a length (3 feet or so) of something like heater hose, put one end up to your ear and
search around with the other end in the engine bay to try to locate noise source.
A similar method is to use a wooden stick, one end pressed on possible noise sources, listen on the other end.
Thanks I will defiantly check it out, someone on YouTube mentioned it could be the heads from an 03 that hadn't been corrected as well. I'll need to check.
Oh and it has 105K miles poor girl has been ridden a long time. Would new fuel injectors quiet it down? If it is coming from the injectors? I'm sure it's time to replace or get them cleaned.
