Hmm, I'll have to sit on this for a minute.
I'll need more info though to diagnose.
at idle?, through the rpm's?, with A/C, without?, gear specific?, power loss?, hesitation?, stumbling?,I know the sound your are speaking of, but it's not registering why a 4 banger would be there, unless it relates to an Automatic. Then maybe.
Need the info.

it normally happenes in 1st 2nd 3rd gears until it hits like 3 grand but im not sure cuz it doesnt have a tack and it doesnt have a/c, and wen this happenes it does kind of hesitate and its a standard trans.

I am thinking gearbox but I am not all to familiar with the ins and outs of them.
I would think something to do with a specific set of bearings or something. Maybe someone here is good with tranny issues. I cannot think of any direct engine issues.

Do these engines have clutch fans? My Chevy truck used to do that occasionally: the fan would really sound loud until I got going. It was a very intemittent thing.
