Q: Car makes grinding noise

Have an experienced technician with an automotive stethoscope inspect the vehicle. Some noises can be difficult to diagnose and the stethoscope will lead the tech to the root of the problem.

Consider having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose the grinding noise and help you fix it.
