Finally, the second possibility is that your silent engine blocks or rubber mounts may be dead. This causes a metallic noise every time your engine moves, either because of a change of pace (acceleration or braking) or, when you drive on roads in poor state. Check the state of your silentblocks and swap them if necessary.
