Q: Car shaking, squeaking, and clunking

asked by on

The car shakes, squeaks, and clunks.

These noises can be caused by a number of different sources. I would need more information, such as where these clunks are coming from and when you are hearing them, to make an accurate diagnosis. I suggest you call the experts at YourMechanic to have your vehicle’s noise inspected firsthand. From there, they will be able to make a diagnosis and perform any repairs that are needed.
