Question about 2002 Pontiac Sunfire
I popped the hood and hear nothing from the front its only on my drivers side and only when my car is in park
If you look under your car you will see a tin heat shield in between the exhaust pipe and the floor of car. These are known to rot loose and cause all kinds of noises. This is located right where you described the noise. Sometimes if this piece is still entact, you can just bend it a bit and the noise will stop, but I would usually just rip them off and leave it off. Hope this helps you

hi, this is a very common problem that all cars eventually get and it is going to be one of a couple of things.
1. the most common fault is the bottom ball joint. These are easy to replace if you have a ball joint splitter and they are cheap to buy, its best to replace both sides as the other one could go soon after.
2. this is the steering rack ball joint their is a rod with a ball joint on at either end of the steering rack this can be tested easy by jacking the car up so front wheels are off the floor then hold the tyre at either side and then sort of wiggle the wheel left and right slightly and youll feel if this is faulty it will have some loose play if feels solid like the wheels are turning normal then the bottom ball joint is the likey problem.
Hope you understand what im telling you if not give me a shout back and ill be glad to help.
Also if you need further assistance then give us a shout.
Hopefully you solve your problem. Either fault is cheap to buy as it is a really common problem so this making them cheaper.
Main dealers will be more expensive but going to a car spares shop that sells everything will be alot cheaper as they use parts that are not genuine but are just as good. Most garages dont buy parts from main dealers as the cost of parts and repair would be to high for customers and they would lose custom. give us a shout back if you have any problems ok

Is this almost like a metallic buzzing sound?
Find the catalytic converter under the car it should have a shield on it. Use a broomstick with the car running and hold the shield still and have someone give it a little gas. Just move from shield to shield until you find the offending shield.
Don't touch these with your hand as they can get hot fast.
Most parts houses sell a very large hose clamp to go around these shield for about $10, they will know exactly what you are looking for.

You didn't say which model or engine.
Check for loose heat shields, broken engine or transmission mounts.
