Also when my car gets to around 20 mph and up, it sounds like a freaking locomotive... basically like someone is knocking on my car....

My son has bunches of ASE plus a Smog license I think is just finished up his master mechanics stuff. He starts 4 hours of TIG tonight for 4 nights a week until the end of July. He should be pretty good. What to sell to get a good TIG machine.

You might want to park this thing until somebody can take a look at it. You might be doing irreversable damage to it by continuing to drive it.

You might be costing yourself more and more money with every mile you drive. I'd say it's time to get serious about figuring something out.

I wish you were closer, I'd take a peek at it for you.

Ok more information

Noise is it coming from front or rear, left or right side?

If it sounds like it is coming from under you rear seat you may need transmission fluid.

If you are going to take the car to someone and pay to have it worked on take it to Cliff. The other in town are twice as high and have no clue how to work on your car.



What are you doing tomorrow afternoon I have to be in town with Helen to go to the Hospital around 1pm. Pm me with your cell and I can drop by and listen to your car. Tonight my car was talking to me dad check the oil in my transmission please.
