What's Wrong with My Car?

1. Weird Noise

like groaning or growling, screeching or squealing, chirping coming from places like under the hood, behind the dashboard, around the tires, under the car, or behind the car. Loud exhaust, break screech, transmission grinding, whistles from the engine, belt noise, slapping, tapping, clicking, no power steering failure, and power steering noise while turning or backing up all fall into this category.


2. Weird Vibration

like rattling, shaking, hard starts, brakes pulsating, uneven breaking, tires shaking, engine rattling the whole car, hard gear switches, delay in gear switching, heavy thuds, shocks hitting hard, hesitation, transmission problems like getting stuck in gear,  rough running, rough idle, stumbling engine, or even stalling while driving and stalling on hills all are reasons to call right away.


3. Weird Smell

like when you smell gas under the hood, the smell gas in the car, smell burning when the heater is on or see smoke when the heater is on. Other bad smells are the smell of burning plastic, the smell of burning rubber, and a burning smell when you get out of the car.
