New member here. (I am usually from the maxima.org forums). My girlfriend's car (1999 LE) has been having this weird noise issue. Never heard it before and tried looking around the web via youtube, google, etc. to find a similar noise. Only one I could think of was valvetrain but this noise sounds very random. Any ideas?

Tell me about it. I am going to the shop today and see what they say. Hopefully more people chime in on what this sound might be.

i can't see the video, im assuming it sounds as if its coming from inside the engine seeing as you thought it was valvetrain noise?

I would have the serpentine belt tensioner checked....I have heard a few make the same kind of noise. I have a 2000 that had to have it replaced.
