Does the noise happen on decel when it's in 4th gear? IN 4th gear both of the plantery gear sets are locked & don't turn. I've seen the front pump axial bearing fail & cause this noise. Small bearing between the front pump housing & the K1 clutch pack. In fact I believe that there was a "red fische" topic on this subject. Trans still must come out & apart. I would run the car on a lift & listen for noises from below as the center support bearing(d/shaft) can cause this noise as well.
