Q: Truck making noise

asked by on

The truck is making a noise when I try to start it.

Hello, diagnosing a noise is a hands on and must be heard. Since you notice that it is making the noise while starting the car, there are several possible causes. The noise could be coming from the starter, the flywheel, or the engine. I would recommend enlisting the aid of a mechanic to diagnose the sound and determine what repairs are needed to resolve this issue.
