05 malibu noise question.

2005 Malibu 3.5 V6 with 60,000 miles. My malibu has been making a noise in the engine compartment. I have replaced the water pump, belt tensioner, and idler pulleys. This noise occurs when the car is in gear when I am at a stoplight and when turning. This grinding/ticking noise is getting out of hand. I guess I will be taking it to the shop to see if something can be figured out. If anyone has any information I will be grateful. Thanks.

Re: 05 malibu noise question.

This might be a silly answer but what state to you live in?

I live in California and my engine gets very hot so it makes the some clicking sounds, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Or maybe, is it a snapping or popping sound? It could be the inner tie rod boot collapsing unevenly. I read that somewhere with someone who had similar problems.
