Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Till Monday? That is only 1 day. How many miles would you be driving it? I wouldn't go too far. How long or how many miles ago did these noises start?
If the noise happens when the vehicle isn't moving then it would not be related.
So you need to drive 155 miles by tomorrow? No, I wouldn't drive it.
Does the ticking and knocking occur at the same time and appear to be coming from the same place?
Yeah, I would remove that valve cover and take a look at them rocker arms and shaft. If it's that loud, you should be able to feel around at one or more loose or start it up briefly with the valve cover off and look.
Yes, I agree.
No, a timing belt doesn't make a knocking noise. How much will the repair cost? That depends on what is found and that has to be established before an estimate can be had.
What does your mechanic say?
Again, you are asking questions without knowing what exactly is wrong. Why don't you wait until your mechanic looks at it and determines what exactly is wrong and gives you an estimate, then if you want to know if the estimate is accurate or if you need help finding the parts or whatever, then let me know.
You must realize, I cannot hear it. Or even see it, unless you take a video with sound and upload that.
