2 Answers


To me a clank would be similar to a bell ringing, bells make a clanking sound and so could any pulley. It could be any of the pulleys or the engine itself. Sounds are always described differently by each person, knock, clank, bang, click, tick. You probably won't get a ton of help on here just a bunch of guesses. You could try to make a video and post it on YouTube. Then put a link on this page.


Take your car to be serviced ,nothing anybody can do online.
