Q: Car making loud noise around engine

asked by on

My car is making a loud noise in engine the area.

A: Hello! If the noise coming from the engine ...

Hello! If the noise coming from the engine itself it may be an indicator of an internal engine problem. However, you indicated that noise is coming from the engine area so it may be an external issue causing the noise such as a bad pulley or even a bad exhaust leak. I suggest that you have a technician listen to the noise in person to determine if the noise is a internal engine or an external problem. From there, you will be able to learn how you can move forward with a repair.
