You can go to Click on 'repair info'(middle, far-left of webpage) --> click on 'troubleshooting'(under 'repair info'), --> click on one of the 'feels', 'looks', etc. pics (in your case, probably the 'sounds' one) --> then go from there. The probable causes are listed in priority from 1 to how ever many probable causes are listed. You can find out what price it would cost for a particular part by 'choosing a vehicle'(top-left corner), then continuing with the answers pertaining to your vehicle. If you want this info saved (so you won't have to keep inputting the info into the website everytime you return to it, then you can register for free and save your info for future use. Also, you can add other vehicles you might own.) You may want to start with the lowest cost item and go upwards from there, especially if the item is in the top 5 or so of the priority listed. Hope this helps!
