Hi there. If the engine noise is happening only when the car is in forward gear, the issue might be caused by a damaged CV joint or the wheel bearings. However, if you're experiencing this sound while braking, it could be the brake pads have worn out and are starting to grind. Due to the fact that there could be multiple issues causing this sound, it's probably a good idea to get a ride home and have one of our professional mechanics complete an car is making a noise inspection where your car is currently parked.
