Q: Loud noise when car starts

asked by on

I hear a loud noise when I start my car.

Unfortunately, the information you provided about your Dodge Durango is very limited, and I will be unable to make a proper diagnosis at this time. I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic and including as much information as possible on this noise. Knowing whether the noise is present all the time or only when the starter is engaging is helpful. Also knowing if the noise appears after the vehicle has been started and turns off after a minute or two can help determine if the problem lies with the cooling fan clutch assembly. A certified mechanic will need information like this to determine the cause of your Durango’s noise and provide the proper repair.
