Troubleshooting car noises: why you should diagnose an odd car noise – and how to do it yourself!
An automobile is one of the most complex consumer products on the planet. Hundreds of different things are set into motion every time you turn the key. Every one of those things makes its own unique noise.
Certain car noises are indeed warnings, while others are normal. For instance, many brake pads have a warning built in that makes a loud screech when pads are thin. This car noise is telling you it’s time to replace your brake pads.
But, a small amount of squeaking from your brakes in the morning is normal. Ask an Advance Auto Parts Team Member or a qualified mechanic if the sound you’re hearing is good or bad, and get a car noise diagnosis.
Why you should listen to your own car engine noise – and other unusual sounds, too:
Howls. Clicks. Squeals. Whooshes. Hisses. Wah-wah-wah’s. Whirrs.
Vehicles can make a variety of noises, but the majority of sounds coming from your vehicle are completely normal. Some car noises, however, are bad news. Troubleshooting car noises is a skill that can save you money and trouble down the road.
