If the noise occurs as you move off in reverse it could be the exhaust system touching the body as the engine tilts forwards in reverse. Check exhaust hangers as well as exhaust alignment. Also check condition of engine mountings as well as front engine mounting buffer as this tends to perish and disintegrate.

I have a Renault Megane and when moving out of the parking space, I heard a loud noise and after that nowI hear clicks as though it had something to do with a spring. Also when driving along the motorway,...

the clicking could be a drive shaft when moving with wheel turned at a angle as for it pulling ??could be multitude of reasons but ask a local mechanic to check it over as could be a deformed tyre causing the noise and the steering pull so straight to a local mechanic do not drive this vehicle till its been checked out as the tyre could cause an accident

Check your transmission fluid. It sounds like your transmission may have run on empty, and may be fried. Try topping it off with transmission fluid. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may need a transmission rebuild.

Loud noise sometimes ocurs when excelerating or braking. sounds like metal draging , but it is not.

Is the car stick shift or auto. Sound like a problem with either the transmission which is spinning all the time even when sat still. Or the Rear axel is tuffed out..
