My car beginnong today has been making a noise that sounds similar to an aerosol can spraying when I apply the throttle and is not accelerating how it should be.I'm hoping that it's something minor and will be a simple fix.

Do you
have the same problem?

If the MIL is indicating, get a scan done to check for trouble codes.

There are many possibilities and without the exact location or source of the noise, it is not possible to understand what could be wrong.

That could be from the transmission. Check the transmission fluids and ensure the level is correct and fluid conditions are good.

Then you have a failing clutch and the noise is most likely from the throw out bearing.
