It’s Your Auto Telling You that Something’s Wrong

As a responsible car owner, you are responsible for the regular maintenance of your auto. However, even vigilant maintenance can’t prevent some major car problems from happening.

Cars can’t talk like humans to tell you what ails them. However, they do give telltale signs that they are on the brink of breaking down.

If your car makes weird noises, they may indicate certain problems. And just like a sick human needing to visit the doctor, your noisy car may need a thorough checkup from a reliable mechanic. Don’t hesitate to take your car to the nearest auto shop if you hear the following unusual noises:

1. Knocking

When you speed up, do you hear a knocking or pinging sound coming from under the hood? If so, it’s an indication that there might be an engine part that’s already worn out and needs replacement. Another culprit could be ignition malfunction, which could be caused by damage to the spark plug or air filter.

2. Hissing

If you hear a hissing noise from your car, it could be a sign that the engine is overheating or there’s a leak in the vacuum. Get it fixed ASAP as this could pose a danger to your safety on the road.

3. Squealing

If you hear this noise when you apply the brakes, it could mean that there’s already a buildup of dirt in your brake rotors, drums, pads, or shoes. It could also mean that the brake calipers are improperly mounted, or the brake pads are already worn out. You don’t need to be reminded how dangerous it is to drive a car with braking issues.

4. Popping

Several issues cause a popping noise. It could indicate leaks in the fuel injector or issues in the muffler holes. Get it checked immediately before it progresses into worse problems.



Give Up Your Old Car to Support a Worthy Cause

Keeping yourself safe on the road is your primordial concern as a motorist. If your old car has become prone to breakdowns and having it repaired will only give you a brief respite from your road woes, perhaps it’s time to let it go.

The good news is that you can still put that vehicle to good use. All you have to do is hand it over to us at Breast Cancer Car Donations. We’ll use your donation to help save the lives of impoverished breast cancer patients in your local area.
