Our daughter borrowed our...

Our daughter borrowed our srx. It came back with an engine noise, almost a tapping sound. Increased as drove faster. We drove about 10 miles sound became really bad, red light came on saying stop engine now. My wife didnt have a chance to stop it, the engine just stopped and wouldnt restart. Had it towed home. Next morning it started. sounded like washing machine, and stalled. I checked oil. There is some grit in it, perhaps small metal particles. 85000 miles on vehicle

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

It was a red light that appeared in center of speedometer unit. with with words stop engine now

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your SRX?

2011

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

I haven't tied anything other than to restart it

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

That's it

oil full
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Whatever it is I'm not qualifed to repair it. All I want is a sense as to what you believe is the problem

from the sounds of it a crank bearing has failed or spun causing this noise

if you see metal particles in the oil the oil pan needs to be removed and see if a rod bearing failed

that would be the only thing to cause this issue

as for why it failed is hard to tell if the oil was full and being changed regularly it is just a bearing that failed
