One thing it can be is the timming chain tensioner. It makes a hollow alloy sound on light acceleration.

water pump & timming cover off.

The timming chain tensioner gets very worn in high K cars and can even end up in the sump. Timming chain flops around and makes the hollow alloy sound. But mostly makes the noise when you gain speed slowly like in back streets and you have your mum in the car :).

If your getting squeely type noises at 80kph - it can be metal bits in the lock up clutches of the tranny. = rebuild tranny not far off time.
