Q: Squeaks when driving over bumps

asked by on

I hear a squeaking noise coming from my car when I am driving on bumpy roads.

The suspension is the most likely source of the noise. However, almost anything on a car can develop a squeak. Try your best to narrow where exactly the noise is coming from. Front, back, left, or right. This will help a mechanic find it faster. I would recommend having a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and diagnose why your car is making noises, and offer possible repairs.
