Hello there. A few different faults could cause the vehicle to have a noise from the shifter area. The most common would be the flywheel, transmission input shaft bearing, low fluid level or the torque converter. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose this noise and perform any repairs required.
