HI, I Bought my car almost 3 yrs ago and I have had problem after problem with it and I have fixed it every time. I had a fuel injector problem, fuel pump, electrical problem with the coils and the EMC Multiple times, T- stat, serpentine belt been replaced. The blower moter and also had the a/c converted over. It also sat for 3 months because It had died and could not figure on the problem because it would run when the engine was cold but as soon as it got hot it would shut off and would not start. Went through hell, but it is running now it was the injectors. And now after dealing with all of that, I noticed a couple of days ago that it was making a wierd scrapping-clincking sound and some times a squeal every once in awhile when push on the accelerator and we thought it was weather related because it started to do this when it has been cooler than usual and engine was cold and the scrapping-clincking sound is sometimes constant for awhile and then it stops and then it contiues for awhile and even when I come to a complete stop it does it. But I have checked my serpentine belt and I also took it to advanced discount auto store and I thought it was the serpentine belt and he checked it and he told me the sound was coming from the top of the engine under the metal thing that sits on top of the engine he felt the top of it and you could feel it when it would scrap-click. And he told me that it was either a vaulve scrapping or a bad bearing and that he would re-build the whole engine. I would just like to know what this sound is and if my car will make it another month untill I can either get another one or fix it? Please let me know somthing I apperciate it. Nicole
