Hi everyone, I'm new here and hope to get a little information and help please. My vehicle is listed above and need some help figuring out what could possibly be wrong. I would really hate to take it to the dealership without knowing or getting an idea of what may be wrong with it.
My engine sounds like a diesel and has a spuratic popcorn sound coming from around the plastic manifold. Car sounds like a harsh running diesel. If I place the car in drive, reverse or whatever it starts to drop rpm really low and sounds close to dying. I'm not sure to what could be causing this. I have not drove the car since this issue started and left the car sitting in the driveway and I have started it up from time to time to test the sound but I do not leave it running long as I'm afraid of more issues from the sound. My vehicle is non drivable and I'd be afraid to take it out of my driveway. Please help. If you need more information please let me know.
Btw I have tried changing the oil, spark plugs and what not but no go.
Please help and Thank you
