Rattle/howl/drone/buzz type noise, resonating from the rear of the vehicle may develop. This sound can be heard at approximately 2100 rpm and may only last for a few seconds. Our technicians tell us that exhaust clamps and brackets should be checked for proper torque and heat shield clearance should be inspected if this condition occurs.

    My journey started making this scraping noise by the back left tire. It only makes the noise when I first start the car after its been off for a few hours. but its gradually getting worse. i just took it to a mechanic and they said it might be the fuel pump but they are not sure yet.
