Question type: Maintenance & Repair

95 Legacy 250t
Stock ej25d engine

There is a knocking/tapping sound coming from the engine when revving. The sound
only occurs between 1500-2000 rpms. Most noticeble when taking off.

This does not happen when first starting up and driving. only after 5-10 minutes of
driving when the engine is warmed up a bit.

Forgot to mention that it is Automatic

Have it looked at. I'd only be guessing that it would be valve tap, or something internal to the engine, and exhaust leak, maybe trans? Hard to diagnose where I sit.
