That thought crossed my mind but it didn't make sense that it would do it
only when the car wanted to shift at certain RPMs while driving straight,
can this actually happen?

The first couple of times I couldn't stay and when he drove it he said he
didn't hear it. I forgot to mention something about it, it starts happening
when the car has been warm for awhile.

Why couldn't you take a drive with the mechanic in the car to demonstrate
the noise to him?
