Hi there. It depends on when the noise occurs and whether it increases in speed as the engine accelerates as to what might be causing these issues and the repairs needed to be completed. In most cases, a continual noise made under the hood of your vehicle is caused by a belt that is loose, a pulley that is loose or if in the engine, low oil levels or loose components under the valve cover. The best thing to do in order to determine what is broken or causing this beeping noise is to have a professional mobile mechanic first come to your location and complete a car is making a noise inspection. By being there, they can inspect the vehicle, test drive and try to replicate the sound. This will allow them to pinpoint the source of the noise and make recommended repairs.
