Check your pulleys, belt and belt tensioner, cooling fan.

Is the noise com9ng from the engine area or could it be your cats are sick?

Jason Zane

check wheel bearings for wear


If it sounds like it could be an exhaust noise check the flex connection that connects the exhaust manifold on the engine to the exhaust system. I've had 2 '06s and they have both failed. It's not a cheap part, surprise, surprise, but you'll need a new one. Don't bother with a used one. The labor is about 1.5 hours at a muffler shop.
