First ask around about a reputable mechanic. they are out there. Got to one and ask if he could tell you what the noise is. I would not wait too long as you could do damage and cost a lot f money to repair Yes it will cost you but that is a part of owning a car. It might not be an expensive fix but don't take a chance.

Richard, It could be something as simple as a bad belt tensioner to something as major as worn bad rod or crank bearings.
Best to find a knowledgeable buddy or a mechanic you can trust and have them diagnose.
Hope this helps you out. Good luck.

These are hard to get to...mounted on the exhaust manifold or exhaust piping in the engine compartment. Usually rusted on, and in a spot hard to reach.

If possible, spray the sensor threads with rust penetrating oil and wait a day. Spray again, in a few hours attempt to remove the part.

Remove the electrical connection wire.
Should come off with a closed end (box) wrench.
