Hi friends,

I'm hearing this sound coming from the engine. I'm not sure what it could be - any ideas?

I'm not mechanically savvy, so I'd appreciate your input.

Thank you!

It sounds like either the cambelt or the alternator belt to me or even the alternator itself. I suggest that you get both belts looked at. When where they last changed?

I would take the engine panel off and get a closer ear to ascertain the likely cause.

Thanks. I don't recall the last time they were changed. Do you think it's safe to drive to the mechanic (5 miles away) in this condition?
