: Sounds that a N* engine bay should make

I was in a fast food carry-out lane with my windows open and I can hear all the moving parts under the hood, my question is what kind of noise is a sign of failing parts?

knocks, bangs, rattles, squeaks, squeals, grindings, thumps, explosions, etc etc etc. What sound are you particularily worried about?

Oh yea, and fast food lanes are notorious for making people hear things that aren't really problems...the echo off of the wall right next to you makes everthing sound a lot different and makes people worry...

LOL the sound of an explosion is pretty obvious:D But since my car is over 100K I don't want something to crap out on me when, say, going on a long road trip(those mechanics will rip you off big time). Things like the alternator, fuel/coolant pump, power steering and such important parts are the ones I'm talking about, what kind of noise/behavior should I expect from these parts when they wore out?

Planning to run this Deville until I can't:worship:
