Bad bearings in an alternator would make a grinding or roaring sound. If a Diode Plate is failing you might hear a buzzing sound in the radio that changes pitch with the speed of the engine.

If it's a type of clunking noise, check your gearbox. If it's some kind of rattling, check your hubcaps.

It makes AC ( alternating current ) . That's why it's called an alternator. A DC generator would usually be called a dynamo.

Don't ignore that kind of sound. Find out what is causing it and replace or repair the faulty part. A "grinding noise" can be caused by an alternator, water pump, idler pulley, heater fan motor, air pump or any of a long list of components, many of which can cause some serious problems if they seize or come apart.

The sun is situated in outer space, which is a vacuum. Sound does not travel through a vacuum, so from where we sit, the sun is silent. It makes no noise. If you (impossibly) were sitting on the sun, it would be very noisy indeed, with enormous pressures and continual explosions like Hydrogen bombs. Your ears would be destroyed in microseconds by the intensity of the noise. The sun does make a lot of a different kind of noise. This is electronic noise. The sun makes noise across the whole radio frequency spectrum, which can be picked up on radios.

you would hear a loud thudding noise when you go over a pothole/speedbump etc. This is due to the shocks bottoming out normally because they have leaked all the oil out.
