good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

where is the noise coming from??? why did the dealer tell you it needed a motor??? we dont have much to go on here


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
could not pinpoint the area. opened the hood and sounds like the left side of the engine compartment. reving up the engine and the noise doesn't seem to get louder. seems like it quiets down at times and other times its loud but not overpowering loud.

I wish I could help but we still have nothing go on to give you an opinion. any engine noise is not good. it could as simple as a valve tap or a major noise from main or rod bearings which would confirm dealer findings.
