I have a 1992 Ford Tempo and it does fine except that the dashboard, when
accelerating lightly at certain speeds, emits a very irritating buzz-like
sound. I know, compared to major engine/transmission troubles it's nothing.
But that noise--ugh that noise! It is majorly irritating.

I often read in past car-test issues that squeeks/rattles are something that
you probably have to live with, that they're notoriously time-consuming and
expensive to trace and fix. Is this true, or is it pretty easy often-times
to trace & fix such annoyances?

Start pushing on the dash in various places to see if you can alter the
sound. You can crawl under the dash and pound on areas to find a loose
spot. You might need to wedge something like a shim made of plastic,
paper, cardboard, wood, etc. to tighten it up. It's probably just a
plastic heating duct or a wiring harness rubbing something. You have
the time and motivation to find it so it should be easy.
