SOURCE: Unusual ping noise
I have heard the same thing in my '07 Altima 2.5 S. I asked a mechanic @ the local dealer, and he said he doesn't know what it is and couldn't get the car to make the noise when he drove it.

Could be anything from a bad knock sensor to an internal engine problem. Try a stethoscope test if you can duplicate this racket while in park.....accordianman

Tank could have rust.. Might want to get the gas more looked at - and maybe after that - replace the tank if allot of rust is present..

There are no greases zerks or lube points on that model .You actually aren't moving anything while in this state. I have seen exhaust components cause this if there is any contact to chassis or rubber mounts missing.The engine vibration through the exhaust system can resonate noise.

it could be that the tick over is two slow in brive,,,
set it up to tickover at 850,,950 rpm (in drive)
or it could be a gear box fult like the drive plate has a crack in it,,,letting the torque converter slap about,,,
chech tick over first,,, bont adjust tick over in gear unless the brakes are held hard on,,,
