    So I was driving and noticed that my car started making a sound while I'm driving it sounds like a chain dragging also it sounds like it's coming from the rear any ideas what it might be and how to diagnose it?

    Check your muffler(s), sometimes baffles break loose inside and can make some really odd noises.

    That is true. I have a small 1/4" hole in My Van muffler. It sounded like something coming apart in the back. I pulled over and looked around but couldn't see anything. When I got up to about 35MPH it would happen. When I got home I crawled under and saw the hole.

    The car only does it when driving! When in park if I rev the engine I don't hear it only when the car is moving for instance I put it in neutral when driving and I still could hear it

    Block the front wheels well and put the rear axle on jack stands. Have smeone put the car in gear and ease off the brakes. Quite likely you have a u joint or brake problem. You can walk around and listen to the mechanics.
