2002 NISSAN ALTIMA AWFUL ENGINE NOISE

Asked by Jun 17, 2018 at 04:54 PM about the 2002 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima and about 2
months ago when i would go to start my car
it would make a loud clinging sound and it
ended up being starter so i had some
replace the starter which they did and then it
woildnt do anything so they checked starter
and it was fine but from the get go i usually
had to take negative post off battery cuz
something wasnt grounded out so that
prevented me from having to get a boost. So
when starter was replaced we switched
batteries 2 or 3 yomes trying to boost car
and get it started. Well come to find out the
jumper wire was hooked up wrong so last
night it finally started but when it did it made
the most awful noise. It was like
clinking/knocking/metal 2 metal type sound
and we immediately turned it off. Does
anyone know what this awful noise could
be?
