My car has suddenly started to make a rattling sound that sounds like it's coming from under the hood. It started last night an a few times now the RPMs have randomly dropped on me while going a consistent speed and none of my lights are on. And now if I'm going up a hill or turning on to a road it feels like something in the engine isn't catching right. Help?

Do you

No it sounds like it's in front of me not from underneath me.

Try a spray bottle of water and spray the belt and see if the noise goes away
