Q: Engine making humming and bumping noise.

asked by on

Hello, depending on where the damage is on the car you may have broken or bent something on the outside of the motor. I would say the most common problems would be from a fan that is damaged or a pulley that the serpentine rides on. I would have a qualified technician, such as one from Your Mechanic, determine where the noise is coming from.
