This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.

Ford transit 2007 diesel. The engine light had been on a while my machanic told me the emission control needs changing. But it can drive. My problem is the engine just stopping running properly and now...

Sounds like your mechanic was right. Most likely the exhaust filter has filled and needs to be changed. It's like a rope around your neck for the engine trying to exhale.

My car makes loud sound when i drive and the car shakes and vibrates when i stop at a red light and still keeps making the loud stound . any idea whats the problem and how much it will cost me around

Have the sound investigated immediately as from your description it may be a major engine failure in the making. If it is then the fix will be another engine and that will be expensive.;

My 2004 Prius has a rattling metallic sound on acceleration. It is coming from the top of the engine on the passenger side. Does anyone know what this can be?

Does the car make this sound when the car has just been turned off and engine is still hot? Lightly push the car back and forth while it's in park. Does it still make that sound?

2005 Aveo brokedown just after hearing loud tin

You have one of several things wrong
1- threw a rod = expensive
2- locked the engine up = expensive
3- lost the timing belt or chain = expensive but not as - IF _-- you didn't bend any rods

I hope this kind of helps - as I know no one wants to hear this kind of news.
I hope the best for you but it does sound like major engine problems.

My car sounds like a sewing machine upon acceleration, but stops upon levelling out.....make a loud knocking sound when cold. Any suggestions?

You better get it to a shop it sound like a broken piston or maybe a bearing going out. Have you been changing oil regularly, and keeping it full of oil? You made need a engine, check with,, for the salvage yards in your area that might have a good used engine. A new engine is going to be big money. Do you have extended warranty?

Loud noise in gas engine

I am a fellow Prius owner, mine only has 8,000 miles though ;-) If I was you I'd just bite the bullet and take it to the dealer. Worst case is you're out the $100 or whatever they'd charge to diagnose the problem. You can always fix it yourself but if they do a proper diagnosis it could save you money in the long run. Does it sound like the noise is internal? You may also want to search or post at, a Prius forum.p.s. Congrats on getting 189K miles on it already, these cars last a long time, I'm very happy with mine.
