Q: Q: Noise at front of car

asked by on

I hear a noise at the front of the car.

First we’ll have to determine if it is a brake, suspension, or engine noise. Worn brake pads have indicators that squeak when the pads are worn. It will change when you apply the brake. Suspension noises are usually when hitting bumps and indicate worn parts. Engine noise can range from a tick to a knock and will need to be heard to determine how to proceed. Have a mechanic listen to the noise so that the right repairs can be made for your vehicle.
