I was driving just a few days back and there was this rattling sound under the hood, its started small and I was about 400km's from my destination. But as I drove it got louder and louder until in the last 100km's it was so loud I couldn't move on. I parked and popped open the hood and the sound was there, seemed to be coming from the timing belt though. I switched the car off and then tried starting it again but this time it wouldn't start, it just cranked. Waited a bit more checked the belt if it had split but it was intact just that it seemed a bit loose. Tried starting it again but this time when I did it popped up a cloud of smoke from the hose where the air intake from the air filter goes. This creeped me out and to date I am still wondering what could have caused this and what is the real problem and how to get it fixed. Hope you could assist,
Thank you in advance
