Hello, my name is***** and i will do my best to assist you.I am going over your story now and will reply back soon with some info,thanks!
ok so the one thing that stands out is that you said that the engine gets louder the longer it idles, can you crate a youtube video of the noise?
when was the last time the oil was changed?
is the check engine light on?
are there any codes?
how does the car run besides the noise?
it will be me as long as you reply to this chat and do not start another question
so just reply back here with the link to the youtube video and ill listen to it. make sure that if you make the video you walk around the entire car and engine bay so i can get different perspectives of the sound. sometimes sound travels so its better to hear it from all angles.
yes for sure, you can reply back here whenever at any time. ill get an email when you reply so just give me time to check it.
as for the dying it can be a few things, so lets get the noise established first.
could be failing ignition coils, those are really common also a lot of the emissions hoses and lines are plastic and rot causing air leaks. those are the most common, throttle bodies do fail but the cars wont run if that is the case.
