You’re the most familiar with how your car is supposed to sound, so any new, unusual sound should be a call to action to contact a trusted auto repair pro. “Any unusual sounds need to be checked out,” says Christoph Erdel, service manager at highly rated Euro Motorworks in Indianapolis. “The louder and more frequent the noise, the more urgent it is to get it looked at.”

Check out the possible explanation to these five sometimes mysterious sounds that indicate your car needs professional service:
