So I get my Brat back a couple of days ago after getting some welding and hammering done, and I go to turn the corner at lunch and I hear this grinding noise up front somewhere. Whenever I give it gas, there is a metal on metal sound somewhere. I can't give it gas without the sound. So I throw it in 4 Hi and I am fine. Drove it back to my work and checked oil which was very low. When I picked the car the guy said everything was checked and was fine. I can't take it back because they'll charge me a couple of hundred dollars to check around. Any idea of what it could be?

I checked the transmission fluid as well and it was fine. Does it go bad? The car was sitting for a while, does that matter?

I wouldn't have seized the engine if I can drive it in 4WD right? I'll check that tomorrow, I left the Brat at work. Is there anything else it might be off the top of your head so I can have a guy look at it tomorrow?

Does it happen when you turn or when you accelerate? Does it grind when the Brat coasts or does it only happen when its in gear.

Did it make this sound before you gave the car to the mechanic?

It happens only when I accelerate and only when in gear. It didn't have any problems when I took it in, but it was beat up kinda bad when I took it to him. It drove fine over there and fine after I got it but 3 days after it craps out.
