Hello. If I had a description of the noise it would help me to diagnose what the noise is. On a Toyota Corolla, there are common issues with the engine mounts that will cause noise as well as a failing CV axle. If it is a clicking noise, then it is probably an axle. If it is more of a knocking, then it may be a mount or even an exhaust issue. If you need to have this looked at, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the car noise and make the appropriate repair.
