Loud Engine Noise problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Loud Engine Noise problems reported in most popular vehicles.
The car is a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. I have experienced nothing but issues with my 2010 Equinox. It has been in the shop many times regarding the oil level being low and a loud noise and transmission getting stuck and slipping. Also experiencing gas smell while I’m driving or when I come to a complete stop. Also it’s not normal for the engine to lose 3 quarts of oil out of 5qts within 3000 miles. Started noticing the lost of oil may of 2013. Took it to the shop and they replace the engine and other parts that go along with that repair. July of 2013 same problem occur again, lost of oil again, and then they replace front drive axle inner shaft seal. Also took the car back to the shop for oil lost on Dec. 31, 2013 for losing 3 qts oil out of 5qts. They tell us that there is nothing wrong. They said they inspected it for oil leaks, but if they would of check the oil dip stick they would have seen the lost of 3qts of oil. Also I have pictures that I took of the oil dip stick showing only 2qts of oil on Dec. 17 2013. Also we have contacted gm and no help from them. I’ve investigated this problem I learned that I’m not the only one experiencing the same problem across the united states. Also on the invoice that I received they did not do an oil consumption test which involves more than just checking for leaks? seem like there not following the service procedures. It's obviously an internal defect in the 2. 4 liter engine that causes it to burn that much oil. Also I have all my papers when I took it to the shop. Also they gave us a copy of the multi-point inspection where it indicates the fuel system, engine, transmission, drive axle; transfer case requires attention soon, wow you think that’s why my transmission is slipping. This loud engine noise problem happened on Wednesday, May 8, 2013.

The vehicle involved was a 2008 Chrysler town and country. I noticed at approximately 48,000 miles that my 2008 Town & Country was burning oil during use with no visible oil leaks after taking the vehicle in for an oil change. The mechanic stated that the vehicle was 3 quarts of oil low when checked before draining the oil. I have been checking the oil once per month since. The vehicle now has about 73,000 miles on it and is burning approximately 1 quart of oil each 1500 miles driven. I have never owned a vehicle with this problem and have read other complaints on this site of this same issue. I am lucky that I caught the issue before serious engine damage and repairs were required like some of the other respondents. This issue should be considered for recall or extended coverage in the event that serious issues occur. Other issues I have experienced during my ownership of this vehicle I purchased new are the premature failure of the front hubs and premature wear of the brake components. The front hubs have failed on each side 3 times already in the 73,000 miles and now the drivers side hub is making a loud noise again signaling that it will need to be replaced soon. I have never had this issue with any vehicle that I have owned. To have it happen for the 4th time prior to 100,000 miles would seem to be a defect. The brake components seem to wear out every 15,000 miles and the rotors require replacement each time the pads wear out. This seems to be a quality issue with the parts both new and replacement. The failure date was Apr. 5, 2014.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Dodge Durango. Crash was involved with the Dodge Durango. I was pulling away from a stop when the engine suddenly made some loud noises sounding like grinding and the vehicle lost all power, steering and brakes. I had to navigate over railroad tracks with a train coming and onto a side street and a ditch. I was the only one in the truck at the time and was not hurt and there was no damage to the vehicle. If it had been one of my kids or wife driving it would have been tragic due to no power and trying to steer a 5000lb truck across traffic and railroad tracks with a train coming. This vehicle was well maintained and had an oil change two weeks prior to the failure. Within the past year this I had the vehicle completely gone thru by dealer mcinerney in mi and they got it ready for what I thought would be the next 100,000 miles. After I had the vehicle towed home due to the estimated $7000 repair bill, I called several Chrysler mechanics who told me this is a known issue with that model and engine year due to both water leaking into the engine compartment (TSB issued) and a possible problem with the crank main bearing. I called Chrysler customer service (joke) and both the people I talked too "literally" asked why I was calling since the warranty had expired and it was no longer Chrysler's problem. I told them because warranty has no bearing on a known defect. The second person I talked to literally laughed at me on the phone and refused to let me talk to someone higher than him stating "I am as high as it gets" and told me "Chrysler is not going to do anything for you". I asked his if this is the new Chrysler after "I" helped bail them out, he said they bailed themselves out. This is the same customer service that told me there were no electrical issues, then 6 months later recalled my truck due to electric fires. If this does not get resolved by Chrysler, I nor will a anyone in my family ever buy another Chrysler product. This issue happened on Aug. 16, 2013.

The VIN of this vehicle was 1GKER23707_. 2007 GMC Acadia. . . It has 62000 miles on it & just in March we had a problem with a metal on metal scraping sound(& you could feel it when you braked) like it needed new brakes but brake pads were like new. And the service airbag light is on, then service traction control message, & service stabilitrack message came on too & it started jerking when you hit the brakes like the abs brakes were kicking in. So we took it to robinson's & they turned the rotars & rotated my tires & when I got it back it rode like a dune buggy. Took it back & said it needed new struts cause "something" stayed in a locked position or another. So then we got it back & the scrubbing noise/feeling came back with the brakes again so then they finally just put new brakes on it & so far so good $1000 later! now, this morning I was in a drive thru & it felt like my car was in neutral when I tryed to go forward & I had to look to see if I moved the gears & then I noticed the orange engine light was on. It barely wanted to go & the rpms just kept getting higher & higher & it was struggling to move so I pulled over & had onstar run diagnostics & codes po700 & po716 power train detected malfunction transmissions & transmission not performing as expected!! I noticed after she ran the test my car sounded like it changed back to normal while running so I cut it off & back on & it drove ok back home but now we have to have it looked at & I'm just sick to my stomach over this! it looks like it's gonna be a broken wave plate & ending up resulting in a new transmission I can not afford!!! I know it's 2007 but with such low mileage & in great condition I wouldn't think it should have all these problems especially with the transmission!! I have read so many reports on the same issues which are beyond ridiculous considering how much you pay for these vehicles!!!! this is totally unsafe & needs a recall ASAP!!!. This issue happened on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

The vehicle is a 2010 GMC Acadia. The VIN of the car is 1GKLRNED2A_. As car was accelerating to 30 mph in a lane of traffic into a turn, I heard a loud noise. Then, I couldn't move the steering wheel. I tried to pump the brakes, but the car did not stop immediately. I had no control over the steering, and the car eventually stopped in a parking lot. I was petrified. The radio was still on, and the key was still in the on position, but the key could not be turned. GMC simi valley says the problem was a rod to a cylinder that snapped, and was not due to an ignition problem, or related to a current recall. The whole engine needs to be replaced, almost the value of the car, given its current resale value. I would like to request an investigation into another recall event. This loud engine noise issue occurred Mar. 4, 2014.

The vehicle is a 2013 Honda Civic. Crash was involved with this problem. This letter is to inform you about a severe malfunction that caused an accident. I was traumatized by a sudden unintended acceleration with my 2013 Honda Civic. Luckily no one got hurt in this event, but I’m hoping that this fact will not reduce the attention from this severe malfunction. Following is a brief summary of the event that happened on may 10, 2014 at 6:30pm: I was driving slowly, under 5 miles per hour, approaching a parking near the sideways. There was one car already parked, and I was going to park behind it. I was about to complete my parking, and my leg was gently applying the brakes (I was almost at a complete halt). Suddenly, the car made a very loud noise as if someone pressed on the gas all the way (it was an awful noise), and then it shot itself forward at a crazy speed. As the car drove itself into the parked car in front, I pulled the handbrake and pressed harder on the breaks in the split second that I had to realize something is wrong. Since I was at a very low speed, the impact didn’t deploy the airbags. The parked car in front of me stopped the car from going forward uncontrollably. All of this happened in a matter of seconds. At this point the car’s engine decreased the rpm back to normal, and the car stopped pushing itself forward, though at that point I already deployed the hand break. It was Saturday, May 10, 2014 when this loud engine noise issue occurred.

The car had a crash. I recently had a very serious issue with my 2013 Honda Accord regarding unintended acceleration. While pulling into a parking spot at a garden nursery I applied the brakes but they did not respond in anyway, the engine then revved up making a loud noise, the car lunged forward over several railroad tie barriers, bushes, hit a truck that was parked in the lot and came to rest in a mulch pile. Luckily the truck and mulch stopped the car and I was able to put it into park and turn it off. There is considerable amount of damage to the side of my car and the property of the nursery. This happened on may 8, 2014 at 5:00 pm. It was a gravel parking lot, dry sunny day. This Honda was purchased new in 2013 and is a 4cyl with cvt transmission and has approximately 13,000 miles. The car had to be towed to the dealership where it sits now waiting for a Honda representative to investigate this issue. It was a blessing that no one was standing in front of my car. Much of my decision to purchase a Honda was because of reliability and safety; however, I do not feel safe driving this vehicle. This is my first Honda and I am thoroughly disappointed and alarmed after this incident. This issue happened on May. 8, 2014.

The vehicle was a 2004 Infiniti I35. I had the oil changed in June 2013. In early July my daughter said that the engine light came on and a day or 2 later the car was making loud noises from under the hood. We checked the oil and it was bone dry. We chalked it up to the last oil change as not having enough oil put in it. Well, 5 weeks later the same thing happened along with the oil light. I checked the oil and it's bone dry. All warning lights go off after putting oil in. The car is burning oil,alot of oil very quickly with no residue on the driveway. I went online and many people are having the same problem, mileage should not be an issue. I have yet to bring it in to the dealer for fear that it will need an engine. Some light colored smoke comes out of the right side of exhaust. This is probably happening more than documented as owners may feel like there's not much to complain about with a 9 year old luxury car. It was 06/12/13 when this loud engine noise issue occurred.

The vehicle involved is a 2009 Jeep Liberty. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1J8GP28K19_. Engine suddenly started running extremely rough, and making loud noises. Immediately pulled over and turned engine off. Waited a few minutes and attempted to restart engine, but again it made loud noise and wouldn't turn over. Had it towed to our mechanic. He told us rocker arm jammed, lifter and camshaft toasted, and head blew, and more than one cylinder is involved. He also told us this is the third Liberty engine he's had to replace for customers in the past few years - and that's in a community of less than 250,000 people. When I googled the issue I found many Liberty engine failures reported on several blogs - edmunds, cartalk, allpar, topix, ask, etc. , but not on the NHTSA site. Don't know why people don't lodge complaints here first! regardless, we're now looking at ~$4000 repair/replacement on a well-maintained vehicle with less than 55k miles on it. We went to our local Jeep dealer, who told us the Jeep lifetime power train warranty doesn't cover the damage as we're the second owner. This is ridiculous. There is obviously a design flaw in the 3. 7l engines that causes them to blow, and Chrysler/Jeep must be aware of it, and should replace the failed engines. If the engine had blown at freeway speeds it could have easily caused a dangerous safety issue resulting in a crash. Nhtsa needs to investigate these engine failures!. This loud engine noise issue occurred March 15, 2014.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Lexus Rx330. My vehicle is a 2005 Lexus RX 330. I purchased it certified pre-owned in 2007. I was coming off the highway and stopped at a light. As I proceeded to take a left hand turn the car started making a loud noise. It was jumping and shifting from side to side. Luckily I was able to control it and pull into a nearby gas station. I couldn't drive it and had it towed to the nearest Lexus service center. I was then told that the transfer case on the front differential went. They opened up the case box and metal shavings fell out! I guess there was no transfer case fluid! shouldn't a maintenance required light pop on or a warning? if I had continued on the highway rather than get off the exit, it would have ended badly! the back end of the car completely locked on me. I don't understand why there was no warning light. How am I supposed to know that the transfer case is running out of fluid? the service department said this is not normal. They want to charge me $2700 for the part and $1500 for labor! I ended up having the car towed back to my house until I can figure out what to do. I have a serious issue with the fact that there was no warning and had I been traveling on the highway at a higher rate of speed, I could have flipped the car and ended up in the hospital or dead. I would really like for Lexus/Toyota to do something about this!. This issue happened on Saturday, March 16, 2013.

The vehicle involved was a 2008 Mazda Cx-7. VIN of the vehicle was JM3ER29LX8_. Earlier that day I got my oil changed on my lunch break at work. I drive back to work my car sits in the parking lot and I leave a few hours later well my car it was making a really loud noise it sounded like a helicopter I live about 30 miles away so I figured if I drive slow enough I might be able to make it home. As I was going up a hill the car start to decelerate so im like ok maybe I need to go slower no I get up over the hill and am going down the hill and the car just dies there on the side of the road. I get it towed to Mazda the next day because I find out I have a powertrain warrenty until 60,000 miles I only have 54,000 miles on it so they tow it under my roadside assistance. Now my car has been there for a month and come to find out my timing chain went on it causing a domino effect on it and making the engine go. Now the dealership wants 8 grand to fix my car because Mazda denied my claim due to "engine sludge" which at this low of miles and me performing regular oil changes they considered "lack of maintance" because I couldnt prove it.

The vehicle involved is a 2000 Mercedes Benz Ml320. I have been the owner of a 2000 mercedes Ml320 for about 6 years. The car was purchased from the dealer with approx. 30,000 miles. Today it has approx 73,000 miles. Since owning it, I have had several problems which were all out of warranty and which I feel were unwarranted and were not seriously attended to by mb or the dealer:
this complaint form was very difficult to complete according to the fields provided. The equipment information included is not correct and was included just to get to the form. I felt that the problems with the car should be reported specifically the esp light and the air bag problems
at about 51,000 miles, the airbag became inoperative. I was told that it would cost about $2000 to repair and correct. Dealer offered a small adjustment. I chose not to make the investment. At about 65,000 miles, I began having very loud noises that seemed to come from the crankshaft and appeared to be a brake problem. Dealer did try to determine what it was, but couldn't isolate the problem unless "he had to take the whole car apart" there was a related problem because the esp light would come on intermittently that the dealer advised could not be isolated unless I did the work on the brake and the crankshaft:"
at about 72,000 miles, the car developed oil leaks from the motor. Est. Cost of repair was $2000. We are watching and waiting.

Blown engine on a well maintained, single owner 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor with under 70,000 miles. At 55mph and without any prior warning (e. G. No warning lights on dash or changes in dashboard gauges), the car made an extremely loud noise (almost high revving like), became difficult to steer and rapidly was losing power. The battery light came on followed by the "service engine soon" and while the car would turn over and start the noise became louder and the car would stall out. After being towed to the garage, the car would not start at all and I was informed that the engine was blown. My mechanic also noticed that my driver side floor mat was soaked which I had actually noticed 2 weeks prior when was cleaning my car but had thought that I had accidentally gotten it wet during the washing process. Given that we have had no rain since then nor had I washed the car since 2 weeks prior, it was clear that this was not an issue of getting it wet. My mechanic then said that of the 6 2004/2005 Endeavors that he has repaired in the past year, he had seen the same issue and while some resolved with the unblocking of some line that had to do with the ac he also noted that the others required a much more extensive and costly repair due to the heating element which could cause the engine issue. He also noted that each of the Endeavors with the soaked driver side mat issue had also lost their radios. Ironically my radio had just gone out the week prior (it comes on as if it is working but no sound out of the speakers) & I had made an appt with mitsubish to resolve. The more I read online the more I see the same issues that I and my mechanic have noted therefore it seems like there is clearly a very costly patern of problems with this particular line/year of mits vehicles. Given that I bought my car new in Jan 2005 and serviced it accordingly, this issue seems suspect. This loud engine noise problem happened on Dec. 2, 2011.

The car involved is a 2004 Nissan Pathfinder. Going about 30mph, in traffic, with family inside, the vehicle suddenly lost power. It started to shake and vibrate. The engine also started making a loud noise. Drove it to the Nissan dealership. They could not find anything obvious and quoted a cost of $250 to simply investigate further. We agreed. They came back and said the engine camshaft and timing chain needs to be replaced. Estimated cost $2500! they could not explain why or how this could have happened to a core engine component. They *think* some misalignment of the timing chain might have caused it. We didn't have a choice but to get the repairs done. They also had to replace the engine coolant for some reason. My research shows that there have been several timing chain issues reported that have caused cam/engine failures on same/similar Nissan models/engines. There is also a class-action lawsuit being prepared to hold Nissan accountable for these defects and repairs. This issue happened on 01/18/14.

The car was a 2003 Saturn Vue. On 11/13/2013, I started my car and there was a horrible sound and it stalled. I had to have the vehicle towed to the people who usually worked on my vehicle. I did not take it to a dealer, as I could not afford a dealer. I was told it was the timing chain as they could hear it whipping around when they tried to start the vehicle. They advised me that when this happens it damages the engine. I called a Hyundai dealer as Hyundai is the dealership I bought the vehicle from. I was told that when this happens with the timing chain it does damage the engine and that it would cost $4000-$7000 to have the engine replaced. At no time was I told I could bring it in and have it evaluated. I only know that I spoke with someone there and he felt that this would not have happened if I had used the dealership all along. I am on limited income and can't afford a lot so after checking places who could buy the car from me I found someone who would give me $400 for the vehicle. At no time when I purchased this vehicle in 8/2007 was I told that there was a timing chain issue. They would not tell me because they knew I would not buy the vehicle if they did. All gm says is that there was no recall. There was no recall but because the dealership should have been aware that there was a timing chain issue with this vehicle I should have been advised that there was a problem involved with the vehicle I was purchasing. This defines neglect: having knowledge or should have had knowledge of a problem and not advising the purchaser of said problem. Therefore, Hyundai should have known (as it is a gm dealership) or did know there was a problem and failed to advise me, the buyer, and I was harmed by this negligence. I am still paying on some of the work I had done on this vehicle. I feel I should be compensated in some way. This problem occurred on Wed., Nov. 13, 2013.

The car involved was a 2005 Volvo Xc90. VIN of the vehicle was YV1CZ85245_. Sunday morning (10. 14. 12) car making a horrible noise from engine block. Sounds like loose bolts rattling around inside engine block. Checked trusted Volvo forums on web. I have had four Volvos between myself and my wife: 2000 s40 (wife), 2001 s80 and now 2005 s40 (wife) and my Xc90 - used these forums to stay up on latest issues/maintenance. There were several posts with identical issue with this model, year and v8 engine. Apparently, ongoing issue with counter balance shaft bearing. Design flaw allows rust to occur at bearing and then then cb-shaft fails. Will cause incredible damage to engine - maybe even death if occurs at high speeds. Called dealer this morning, they are familiar with issue, wanted me to drive in or tow. Cost is prohibitive and based on legions of similar consumer reports, am already certain of diagnosis. This issue happened on 10/14/2012.. Read more...

The vehicle is a 2006 BMW 325ci. I am the original owner of 2006 325i with 42,000 miles. On January, the car suddenly alarmed warning signs on CA highway #5 and started to make loud noise and shakings. At that time, I was pregnant and with my 2 year old baby on back seat. The situation was happening on the highway! I was so worried about driving safety. To solve the problem, the dealer shop asked me to replace head gasket aluminum volt and housing gasket. It did cost over $4000. During the repair, the technician said that the problem is common on this model. I researched about this problem and read many complaints about same issues from BMW 2006 325i owners. The owners agree that the head gasket aluminum volt and housing gasket issue result in manufacture defects. Later, BMW changed the volt materials and provided good will repairs for some owners. I strongly assume that this is one of manufacture defects cost customers to repair as well as threaten drivers’ safety. So I called BMW customer relation. But they said that “keep the receipt and you may get refund when ‘there are enough people complain about it’…’you are more than welcome to report this problem to NHTSA’. ” I asked about how many customers had same problems. But they said "do not know". Based on their response, it seems that they knew and understood it is manufacture defects, but do not care until the issue is lousy or handled with powerful authority. It is threating driving safety of not only the owners but all other drivers on highways because it does not give any signs before broken on highway. Therefore, I am reporting this issue while hoping that no other drivers or babies get hurts from this sudden defects and you could do investigate it in depth so that you could protect all other drivers’ life. This problem occurred on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014.

The car involved was a 2013 BMW 3-series. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is WBA3A9C52D_. As I was approaching the on ramp for the highway, I sped up in order to merge into oncoming traffic. I depressed the gas pedal completely to the floor but the car picked up extremely slowly as if it did not have any power. I also noticed at the same time that my engine temperature seemed to be unusually low for a vehicle that had been running for over an hour. There had also been an extremely loud fan noise that would come on every 2 minutes or so. As a result of the lack of power, I nearly caused a collision between myself and the vehicle behind me because the oncoming vehicle did not anticipate someone merging onto the highway at such a slow pace. I continued to drive without power for about 20 minutes as if the car was a naturally aspirated vehicle even though it was clearly turbo charged but the turbo never kicked in. When I got off of the highway and was able to pull over to restart my vehicle, the car started to run as normal. This loud engine noise problem happened on Jul. 19, 2013.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Cadillac Srx. The car had a crash. My husband purchased my vehicle in October, 2006. Within 2 months it was returned to the service department of the dealer. The chrome handle had started peeling on the driver side, the rear window seal was leaking whenever it would rain and the check engine light was on. The leak was repaired, I was told that the engine light was on because we took the factory wheels off and they would call us when the handle came in. That never happened. Toward the middle of 2008 the following messages started showing up. Traction control on and power to engine reduced causing my vehicle to stop in traffic suddenly this caused cars to swerve around me to prevent impact. The day in question I had just picked my 16 yr old daughter up from her audition. We were merging onto I-75 when I heard a loud sound come from the rear of the vehicle. My vehicle immediately spun out of control heading for the oncoming cars, big rigs and trucks. I missed the cement wall by the grace of god and landed in a snow embankment. The timing chains and rear axle shaft were replaced and that did not help. Within 24 hours the vehicle was doing the same thing shutting power down to the engine and I had to return it to the dealer. They finally replaced the door handle after finding out that it had cut my finger causing me to receive 3 stitches. I no longer feel safe driving this vehicle and would like for gm to step up and take it back without penalty. If I wanted the headache of being in and out of someone's service center I would have purchased a used vehicle or what they call a hoopty. It was Friday, January 16, 2009 when this loud engine noise issue happened.
