Q: Q: Car making noise

asked by on

My car is making a noise.

Hello. There are many reasons for a car to make noise. There could be loose plastic, metal, and multiple moving parts. Being able to demonstrate the noise will aid in a proper diagnosis. I would recommend the aid of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, since determining the source and cause of a car noise is a hands-on operation; be sure to describe where and when the noise is occurring when you book your appointment.
