My car has 107 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. It really depends on what type of noise you are hearing that will determine what is causing the noise. If it’s a constant ticking noise, it’s possible your serpentine belt or the pulleys that drive that belt are worn out. It’s also possible that a bracket or other component is loose and causing the noise. It would probably be a good idea to have one of our professional mobile mechanics come to your location and complete a car is making a noise inspection. This will allow them to isolate the source of your noise and recommend the right repairs.
