Check your motor mounts? They tend to come apart and there will be vibration throughout chassis.

pipe rattle maybe? my trans makes a funny "squibbling" noise when its cold. (quote from the wife)
It's not the fall that hurts, it's the sudden stop at the bottom!

Mine did too. I think my throw-out bearing was bad. Or the oil slinger needed to be cleaned and modified.

ive owned 3 neons now 2 1st gens and 1 2nd gen and they all made the mysterious rumble the entire time ive owned them. i beleive this wierd noise comes from the transmission. it comes and goes but nothing bad has ever come from it...just sounds like crap....
