I was driving my car today and i stopped and a random chain sound kept running and when i press on the gas the sound would go away... whenever i stop the sound would start again unless my car is in park.

The sound is like if someone is pulling a chain.
What can it be? :/ its pretty loud....

Possibly a pulley taking a dump. Possibly your water pump taking a dump. Possibly your banks rattling. Take a bright light and look at all your pulleys while your car is running. Listen to your vanos too. That's the chain guide under your plastic engine cover right at the front of your engine

If it's the bolt that connects the headers to the rest of the exhaust make sure you get OEM inconel bolts. $20 a bolt :eek:
