Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for this question.
Does it only make this noise when the vehicle is moving? or can it make this noise if you are at idle?
When it comes to noises, it can be hard to determine with out hearing them. I would start with checking engine mounts. When they break, they can cause a vibration which can transmit through the firewall and sound like rumbling noise. It's something that if you put the car in gear and keeping your foot on the brake pedal and just lightly reving the engine up and letting it come down would make the noise come and go. Also the passenger side front engine mount can do the same thing.
Check to see if it does what I just explained?
The rear mount is more in labor that would cost, verses the right side engine mount. So the rear engine mount is about 4 to 5 hours labor, where the right side mount is around 1 1/2 to 2 hours labor.
But I would see if the guy would let you take it to have it checked. So this way I would pay to have this checked. This way you know what is making this noise and they can do a full inspection on the vehicle so this way there is no surprises.
