Loud Noise

All

A have another noise. Has been happening for a couple weeks now. Started after my fabspeed exhaust was put on but I can not pin point it as exhaust. My wife just drove away in the car and when she did, I heard it. Coming from Passenger Rear tire area and is just a large Chirping noise that I can not explain. I took video but the exhaust is louder than the noise in the video. Any thoughts on what this might be? Appreciate all the responses that you give. I will look into every one of them. I had mentioned this noise before but not many responses.

Chirp on take off is a loose spark plug, do a search for more information or simply re torque them all.

Chirp can also be the waterpump. Take off the serp belt and check the WP pulley for play and roughness. Also, check all of the other pulleys.

Water pump chirp is not quite the same as the noise a spark plug would make. Water pump chirping sounds more like metal on metal... Because that's what it is. But without hearing it, it could very well be either.

However, re-torquing spark plugs is easier and free. Best to start there :P
