Default Engine makes raspy noise when I accelerate

My 2004 max has been making a noise for the past month, but it only makes it 1 out of 15 times driving it so I haven't taken it in to the shop. When I start to accelerate (not hard, just normal) it makes a high pitch raspy noise from the engine, it'll go away when I take my foot off the gas. It doesn't effect the rate of acceleration, just makes the noise, which I assume isn't ever a good thing. Any ideas what this might be? Only reason I haven't taken it to have it looked at is b/c the odds of it making that noise is really low. Any ideas what it would maybe be and how I could troubleshoot it myself?

timing detonation? aka pinging. are you running low grade fuel? try premium fuel and see if that helps.

I tried listening to some sound clips, it might be. I fill it with regular. It'd be tough to narrow it down to gas, considering it doesn't make the noise to often. If it keeps up then I'll just take it in, otherwise I'm assuming it isn't too harmful.
