Why is My Vehicle Making Strange Noises?

Why is My Vehicle Making Strange Noises? | DRIVE AutoCare

Is your car making strange noises while driving? When your vehicle is telling you something, its best not to ignore it. A strange noise can definitely be an indication that there is an issue with your vehicle, and understand what you hear and when it happens can help narrow down where the problem is stemming from. 

If you do hear a strange noise, don’t ignore it! The best thing to do is to make a mental note of when the noise happens and what it sounds like. If the noise is persistent and doesn't go away, we recommend getting your vehicle into DRIVE AutoCare as soon as possible. The sooner we get the issue taken care of, the less repairs that will be needed and the better off your vehicle will be. 

Here are some of the most common noises heard while driving: 

  • Squealing, screeching, or grinding while braking
  • Sputtering or rattling exhaust noises from underneath the car
  • Chirping or squealing noise from under the hood
  • Humming, growling or roaring noise while accelerating or driving at faster speeds

If you're experiencing any of the strange noises listed above, get your vehicle into our experts for an inspection. The issue is typically with the brakes, suspension system, engine, or transmission. Hopefully the issue will be a small one, and the sooner we take care of it, the better! 

Be sure to make note of any other symptoms you are experiencing, too. Sometimes noises happen along with other signs, such as inefficient braking or reduced vehicle performance. 

If you’re noticing a strange noise while driving, bring your vehicle into the experts here at DRIVE AutoCare. We will diagnose the issue and get you back on the road quickly and safely.
