If this person has a clue on automobiles, then it wouldn't hurt to get that checked out. It is important to have all that working, the serpentine belt and pulleys, maybe the alternator, or you could be stranded somewhere. It just may be a heat shield around the exhaust. Just have it looked at.

Without actually listening to the noise, u need to try to see and tell us if noise has some type of pattern like louder when engine is cold or hot, as u accelerate, in gear, A/C on, things like that
