Are these sentences correct:
1-While repaired, the car made a strange sound.
2-When repaired, the car made a strange sound."

Does 2 mean that the car made a strange sound:
a-After it was repaired;
b-While it was being repaired;
or could it mean both.

I'm not happy with either 1 or 2. No. 1 is totally out. No. 2 can mean "After it was repaired," so it works, even though it would be much more practical to opt for after instead of when.

When repaired cannot mean while it was being repaired.
