Q: Something broke underneath my car.

asked by on

It sounds like something is broken underneath my car when I drive.

Hello, without hearing the noise its hard to make a recommendation. If you hear a rattle sound it could be a loose bracket or loose bolt. If you are experiencing a clunking sound, you might have something loose in the suspension. You should enlist the aid of a mechanic to help narrow down the source of the noise.
