If it is coming from the front of the engine then I would suspect the idler wheel on the fan belt or possibly one of the cam belt idler wheels. If it is a cam belt idler wheel get it fixed immediately. How long has it been since the last timing belt change?

FoR, That'll be the case while car is stationary too, so is the noise heard only when MOVING?
