Hi there,

Is this sound from under the hood? I assume the car doesn't have to be running, just the key on?

Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.

It sounds like one of the electronic motor mounts is starting to go bad on it. If you pop the hood and can tell if the noise is from the back or near the firewall you should be able to determine which one it is. You can drive the car with it like this safely, but it will need some attention. This is usually the sound they make when they start going bad. I am assuming it does stop when the key is off of course, they normally just kinda unwind.

Please let me know if there is any more I can do to help you from here.
