My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. I am not too sure about the question you are asking. From what you’ve described, it sounds like you used the tow/haul button when you raced your truck and ever since the engine is making noise. If this is the case then you may have damaged the engine, especially if the oil level was low.

I would drain the oil and see if there is metal in it. I would also need to hear the noise to know better what may be going on. It can also be a transmission issue because the tow mode is not for heavy acceleration so you may have damaged one of the internal bearings. To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I suggest having this looked at. A mobile technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the noise you’re hearing firsthand and make the necessary repairs.
