Your dashboard is filled with icons and alerts that can tell you when your vehicle needs attention. Some of these notifications are more serious than others, but it's a good idea to know what they all mean.
Your dashboard is not the only way to tell if something is wrong. Sometimes you need to rely on your senses, which is why it's also important to listen to the sounds your vehicle makes.
Have you noticed any clunking, grinding or high-pitched squealing lately? Here's what some of these odd noises might mean.
A grinding when you brake typically means that your car's brakes need to be serviced or replaced.
A high-pitched noise that happens when you start your car could indicate a worn serpentine belt.
A humming when you step on the gas could point to a wheel bearing issue. This kind of noise may also be related to the engine.
If you hear a clicking or maybe a popping noise when you make a turn, parts on your car's front axle may need to be replaced.
A clunking noise coming from underneath your car as you drive could be caused by a few different things: an issue with the suspension system, shock absorbers or the rods and pistons.
These warning noises may help you diagnose the problem, but this list is by no mean comprehensive. If you hear something unusual, always ask a trusted mechanic as soon as possible. Ignoring a strange sound can mean more expensive repairs down the road.
