Hi! Sorry I haven't introduced myself yet but I wanted to get this posted up as I haven't seen a similar issue going through the threads on here. I just bought a used V this past weekend and its a 2012 with 10k miles. When I start the car or shut the car off I have a weird grinding and clicking noise right after startup and shutoff. I also get it when I'm driving at slower speeds/lower RPMs. I've been working on cars a long time and it definitely sounds like something in the top end of of the motor almost like something is loose or grinds. It makes a clicking/grinding noise similar to bearings rattling around inside. When I have the hood open it almost seems like something electronic goes along with it during start or shutoff. This isn't the trans issue is it? It's an automatic btw. It just seems like its in the top end... Anyone else have ideas? I plan on taking it back to the dealer this weekend but if I don't have to I'd always rather avoid that. Thanks in advance.
