Customer Question
Second opinion] i startedd...

Second opinion] i startedd my LeSabre and drove about 2 miles. Turned it off. Left the car for 2 minutes. Came back and started it. A loud noise was coming form the engine compartment. I could not tell if it was a hot radiator, but it was that type of sound. I turned off the cat and the sound continued.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

I coild not restart the car. When I opened the hood I looked under the hood and the sound was coming from the engine. The car smelled hot

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your LeSabre?

Battery was working. I used it to put up the windows. I had no tools and so I had to walk home. Came bck and the sound stopped.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your LeSabre yourself? What have you tried so far?

2001

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I tried nothing

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's hard to say without being able to hear the noise in person but I'm wondering if you may have been hearing a hissing noise due to a coolant or possibly a refrigerant leak.

Can you describe exactly what you heard?
