Q: Car sounds like I'm running over can

asked by on

My car makes a loud noise when I drive it. It sounds like I am running over a can.

Hi. Cars can make a variety of noises, if they are loud it may indicate that something may be excessively worn, loose, or even damaged. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, drive and inspect the vehicle’s noise, to determine the exact nature of the problem.
