What kind of noise? If you are hearing and or feeling a clunk, you might have a bad engine and or transmission mount.

This sounds like somthing is loose. It would be imposible to know for sure what is causing this noise without looking at the vehicle. Was there event that took place or any work performed on the car just before it occured?
