Question about Cars & Trucks
The engine makes a very noticable whirring/friction noise while accelerating from 40-60 mph to a higher speed. Almost always does it while passing or accelerating uphill. Hard acceleration from 0 to 60 is completly fine and constant. Punching the acellerator while at cruising speed is the issue. Tips are most appreciated.

Could be carbon build-up on the pistons, causing erratic flame travel in the combustion chamber... 'pinging'...... Decarbon the engine and use a high grade fuel for a few tanks.... also an octane booster can help

This happened to my 2001 Regal... There is a factory recall on the Catalytic Converter going bad. I had mine replaced with the recall and haven't had a problem since
