Good evening Jennifer, it's nice to meet you. Can you describe the noise you are hearing? Also, does it have to be moving or can you just rev the [engine](/topics-engine-chevy/) and hear the sound?

It's like a revving noise but clicky. Pretty sure I have to be movingBut it also bucks when I'm completely stopped
Automotive Expert
Ok It sounds like it might be a misfire. Is your check engine light coming on at all?

No
Automotive Expert
Ok Thanks for the info. I would start with checking the oil. The engine oil may be low, this would cause the noise and may also cause the rough running. If the oil looks good, then I would like to have you try a test for a wheel bearing issue. As you are driving, try weaving back and forth in the lane and see if the sound changes pitch at all. Please check this and let me know.

Ok

I need oil I think.....its only 300 over the 3000 miles
Automotive Expert
That's ok, but you need to make sure you fill it with oil or it will destroy the engine. This is very important.

Doing that bow
Automotive Expert
Ok, then drive it a little and see if it's improved. I should be on for another 15 minutes or so, but you can post here and I will get it in the morning.

Ok ty
Automotive Expert
You're welcome.

Dang the oil solved the noise and bucking but now why is my oil so low when I'm current on oil changes?
Automotive Expert
Well, it's good it solved the original issue, but it does mean you have a different issue. You are either leaking oil or the car is burning oil. You will have to get under it to check and see if it's leaking. Glad the first issue is handled

I have no way of getting under my car to look. I checked my driveway for oil though and didn't see much of anything. My car also doesn't smell like its burning oil. I should get it looked at.
Automotive Expert
Yes, I would get it looked at as soon as you get it in for the next oil change. If it's not leaking it, then the engine is using it.
