HELP! Loud buzzing/grinding noise when accelerating
i'd love to get some opinions of forum members in diagnosing my car before taking it in to the shop. i'm definitely no car expert and this forum has provided so much useful information!
some info about the car...
2002 nissan altima 2.5 sl
about 96,000 miles on it
i'm the only owner
recently had sway bar links replaced
the transmission was replaced once before (maybe 1-2 years ago.. i have to check)
i've noticed that my car has been making a loud noise when accelerating and it seems to be more prevalent when going uphill. my sister said kinda sounded like the buzzing of an electric shaver combined with loud engine roar. it's loud enough since people walking on the street sometimes turn to stare at my car. it seems like the car is a little sluggish when accelerating, but nothing that is too noticeable.
i'm just concerned that the noise is a warning to something that might further be damaging my car.
thanks for your time!
