Dear customer be careful with this type of sound because it can usually be engine lubrication problems, it happens a lot when the oil pump has problems, it can even be a camshaft or crankshaft knock and the problem is that driving the vehicle with these knocks can cause excessive wear on the engine leading to high repair costs, but it can also be simply a problem in one of the accessory pulleys how in the alternator pulley in the air compressor or even simply a tensioner can also be a problem in the engine timing distribution kit, it is recommended that when this type of noise occurs I do not drive the vehicle and is checked as soon as possible.
