Default 95 se making weird noise

I was driving back to work today and was going through an intersection. the road crowns at this intersection and as i got through it, a noise like something was beating against the bottom of the engine started. It sounds like something is rotating it and it hits the somewhere in the engine bay. Any clues as to what this is?

With that description, it could be a hundred different things.

Any chance to get a video?
Does it increase with RPM?
Does it increase with speed only?
What is the oil pressure reading?

oil pressure is normal, when turning left but not turning right, as for when the rpms increase it does until it levels off

Alrightly..let'* back up a moment.

I'm going to need a full sentance with capitals, punctuation and all the normal items.

Your last message could mean oil pressure is wierd on turns or not or something else really cornfusing..and we aren't in a cornfield.

Please...help us..help you.

ok, oil pressure is normal. It usually only makes the noise when I turn left, but doesn't when I turn right. The noise isn't really that bad when speeding up.
