check to see if your torque converter bolts came loose. [would make a ticking sound if flywheel is cracked]

I was thinking a parking pawl is having trouble retracting 'cept while in Park, this would not happen~ the cincher is "the noise disappears"...are you sure it disappears or is it drown out by the other sounds?


No, it was a sticky ignition switch. But thank you any way.
