Is your vehicle making unusual sounds? Worried it may be a costly auto repair? Let’s take a look at tips to help you determine what may be going on with your vehicle, but remember it’s always best to visit a Reno auto repair shop to determine the issue.
According to an article at angieslist.com, “When Its Time to Visit an Auto Repair Shop”
“While modern cars are more reliable than ever, they still need regular maintenance and many motorists don’t notice a needed repair until something changes, particularly how the car sounds.
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:
1. Squealing or screeching when you brake
What repair your vehicle may need: New brake pads, rotor resurfacing or replacement
“This is usually a sign that brake hardware is worn, resulting in a pad not releasing properly thereby causing excessive heat and noise,” says Ben Stallings, president of highly rated Beck Service Center in Indianapolis. Some vehicle manufacturers also build in a brake wear indication system that emits a squealing noise to indicate brake pads need to be replaced.
Installing new brake pads, and resurfacing or replacing the brake rotors if necessary, will help ensure you’ll be able to stop safely and quietly without causing further damage to your vehicle.” To read the entire click here.
