Q: Car making takh takh noise

asked by on

My car is making a takh takh noise from the rear passenger's side.

Hi, there could be many different potential causes for noises from your vehicle. For this particular sound, I would guess that your lifter is stuck. I would recommend having a certified mechanic listen to the vehicle to determine the cause of the sound and move forward with repairs.
