Q: Car sounding weird after engine fire

asked by on

I had a small engine fire under my hood and had to have my car towed to my house. After this happened, when I initially started my car, the car made a loud noise in the engine accompanied by a knocking sound. The car starts and the sound goes away when I place it in drive, but I can smell fumes.
