Default clack sound

i am hearing a soft metallick sounding click or clack type sound upon deceleration usually at about 1400-1700 rpm(sometimes as high as 2500 rpm) while coasting down (no gas pedal). also sometimes makes the same sound upon light exceleration between 1500-2200 rpm.
HAS ANYONE ELSE HEARD THIS OR KNOW WHAT IT IS
could it possibly be the flaps in the charge motion plates?

A/C compressor????? when mine was new, back in January I had that soft metallic sound. Now, not nearly as bad. As the compressor would cycle you would hear this click sound....

good luck and have fun,
Later.

Not sure if this is what he is describing - maybe tranny?? But the AC compressor on these cars has a VERY loud and distinct clicking sound for sure! Its so loud that it reverberates off the pavement and sounds like it is coming from behind the car!

I have been having a popping sound and can feel it in my floor board everytime my AC cycles. I have complained to the dealership
about this, but they say there is nothing they can do. For a while it had died down but it is back. It died down a bit when they gave me
a new trans, felt like they had tightned everything up...who knows. But the sound is back just not as bad.
