Maybe it is marbles or tennis balls,just kidding.This sound like your piston rods are cracked or broken. This is a very serious problem that needs to be fixed so your not stranded somewhere.I am not exactly sure because I have not heard the marble sound that you are talking about but that's the sound that a cracked or broken rod makes.

If the engine has lifters. The are warn. Lifters, rods, camshaft will new to be replaced. All will have wear effected by the other. These are under the heads. Not a cheap fix. Sry. But no. Not a broken rod/crank blah blah or wouldn't be running out of your driveway.

My car engine makes loud sound when i drive

This could be a number of things and a car is difficult to diagnose from sounds as th nature of it means that the sound does not always come from where it sounds like it is. Try - wheel bearings (usually a high pitched squeal) - Big or little end bearings if the engine has been run low on oil. It is an auto I assume so could be gear box. It could be something really simple like engine mounts and the vibrations of the engine are passing to the metal body as the rubber has come away.

W+Could you possibly video it and post?

When i press on the gas i hear a loud noise

If it sounds like a large vacuum cleaner, plugged catalytic converter. If it sounds like marbles being spun rapidly around inside a can, power steering pump fluid. If it sounds like metal dragging on metal bad bearings in alternator or water pump. If it sounds like "whirr" timing chain going bad. If it sounds like a motorcycle, bad exhaust pipe or muffler.

1999 T&C with very loud noise somehow associated with a/c or belt

From your description it sounds like a bearing in one of the units driven by the drive belt is failing. It's most likely the a/c compressor but could be a tensioner or idler pulley. The added stress of the a/c compressor could cause the noise to occur only with the a/c on. To determine which bearing is failing the drive belt would be removed and the pulleys spun by hand while listening for noise. It is just a coincidence that the noise got worse after they checked the refrigerant pressures. The part that is likely failing isn't oiled by the oil in the a/c system.

There is a loud noise coming from my engine ..sometimes..

oh ok, you probably have air shocks and that is the compressor running... makes sense that it sounds with the engine off... it should not be a loud sound though, normally it's quite quiet and you only hear a faint noise... if it is that loud it's probably a bad compressor
