Concerned About the Noise Coming From Your Vehicle?
Worried about the noise coming from your vehicle? Noises that intensify over time could be a red flag. Here are ways on how to determine what may be going on, but always remember to visit your mechanic to be sure of the issue.
According to an article at magazine.nationwide.com, “What’s Really Going on With Your Vehicle”
“When your ride is making odd sounds—whether they’re squeals, scrapes, pings or pows—it’s telling you that something might be wrong. Try these ways to diagnose sounds of particular concern.
Squealing: The most common squeals come from your brakes, and they mean you might be due for a new set. If you’re not tapping the brakes but you still hear the squeal, don’t think that everything is OK. “Some brakes have sensors that squeal on their own,” says vehicle expert Lauren Fix, the “Car Coach” and Time Warner’s national automotive correspondent. “If you wait on this, it could become much more dangerous—and turn into a much larger repair as you wear down your brake rotors.”
Scrape: This is a classic wiper noise, and not a benign one. “It means your wiper is wearing down,” says Fix. “If it scratches your windshield, it will cost hundreds of dollars to replace. Plus, a bad wiper reduces visibility when it’s raining—and 80 percent of your driving decisions are based on visibility.”
Clunking: If this happens while you’re driving, it might be a bad shock absorber, which has an impact on handling, steering and even braking. Get it checked out.” To read the entire article click here.
