Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.
If the check engine light is staying on with the engine running, there are diagnostic trouble codes stored in the computer to help diagnose the problem. Therefore, you need to scan the computer so we can get a better idea where the problem is coming from.
Here is a quick video that shows how to scan a computer:
I realize most people do not own a scanner. However, most parts stores will do it for free. Therefore, if you can safely get it to one that does it, you can try that. If you cannot, see if they will lend or rent one to you. Honestly, if it is making a lot of noise, I do not want to chance causing more damage.
If you cannot get a scanner and it is making a lot of noise, it may be cost effective to have it towed to a place where it can be scanned.
Once you get the codes from the computer, let me know what they are and I can guide you.
I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have other questions.
