I did a fiagnostic on my car and I got told that my car needed a timing belt service and a new starter two weeks after it started making a really loud noise when I turn it on and drive it it wont go away is there any chance that this noise maight be caused by the starter or the timing belt? Or could it be aomething else?

Do you mean you had the diagnostic fault codes read? If so, they never say to replace parts or that they're bad. They only indicate the circuit or system that needs further diagnosis, or the unacceptable operating condition.

I don't know how to read that really huge sentence. You need to use some punctuation in it so it makes sense.

"my car needed a timing belt service and a new starter two weeks after it started making a really loud noise".

Are you saying you heard this noise for two weeks, then had the repairs done? If so, did that solve the noise or is it still there? If it's still there, what did the mechanic have to say about it?

"two weeks after it started making a really loud noise when I turn it on and drive it it wont go away"

Do you mean there was no noise for two weeks after the repairs, then the noise started? If so, we have to know first what is causing the noise so we can determine if it's related to the recent repairs. You have to understand I can't hear the noise or where it's coming from. You'll either have to have your mechanic listen to it or try to describe it in as much detail as possible. Is it a high-pitched squeal? A low-pitched groan? Does it change with engine speed? Things like that can help in determining where to look.
