This morning this LOUD ticking sound started coming from under hood while cruising. It only comes when i let go of the gas pedal. I revd the engine on neutral but the sound doesn't come on. ONly when i let go of the gas while I'm on drive on tiptronic. someone help please. I'm hoping its not the transmission or the flywheel since the noise is coming from the left side of under the hood cuz that's gonna cost a crapload of $$. HELP!

why not? what's the point of having tiptronic if I won't use it? I wish I had a stick shift but I do most my driving in Chicago (city) so I chose an ATX.

I have a 2003 mazda 3, 1.6 z6, with 93000 miles in it.
For a while it has the codes p0012 and p0031.
The other day after some revving on the highway i noticed some loss of power, then suddenly there starts a loud clacking/clicking noise.
Stalls when cold and the noise gets worse as the car warms up. It dosnt go away while inn park.
Also, sometimes, only between 1000 and 2500 RPM it for the most part goes away.
thanks for everything!
