Hello , I have a Scion tC 2012 . Recently, about 2 weeks ago my car is making a very rusty/scratchy noise when I turn my car on . when I’m warming my car up , now I hear the noise as I accelerate and or is idle at a light /stop sign ect .. I took it to Toyota and they said everything checks out fine , besides me needing one new tire. Sounds like it’s coming from me engine/ exhaust . I have no clue ! I just know something Is major wrong , deff not fine . Can anyone help me with this issue ! Or maybe have a guess in what it could be . I do know I need a tune up maybe ! Really hope someone can help ! :) this car is my favorite ! I would hate to get a new car !

Is your TC an Auto or Manual? Also what kind of sounds or than rusty? Is it only when you turn on your car? I feel like a lot could be wrong or different but it's hard to just say based off the little info you've given.

I'd have to say that it could be that you need a full on tune up. (Spark plugs, Oil,air filter all of the above)

Check that all your exhaust is hooked into the rubber hangers and is all tight. Exhaust can make some funky noises.

I see she's a new member, (like me), was looking for free advice, got a few responses, and doesn't seem to care. Maybe it's fixed, and she's moved on. I know I always like to give a follow-up to a thread. It's called common courtesy.
