Q: Q: Car making noise

asked by on

My car is making a noise.

The most common noise that Lincoln LS owners hear is from the brakes, or a bad wheel bearing. If the noise is a scraping sound, it’s likely the brakes. If the car is making a grinding, roaring noise that changes as the car increases speed, it’s likely a wheel bearing. I would suggest having a technician come out and inspect the source and cause of the noise, so they can make a better determination of what the sound is.
