A Little Trouble, Maybe?
If your vehicle is sending you smoke signals or leaving little fluid stains, it's time for a chat! Smoke from your exhaust or engine compartment can be signs of potential issues. Fluids, too, give us important clues:
- Yellowish-green, pastel blue, or fluorescent orange fluids point to an overheating engine or a leaky cooling system.
- Dark brown or black oily fluid indicates an oil leak, possibly due to a bad seal or gasket.
- A red oily spot might mean a transmission or power steering fluid leak.
- Clear water? Usually no biggie - it's probably just condensation from your AC.
The Sound of Trouble:
Your car speaks volumes (literally)! Squeaks, squeals, rumbles, and pings are all messages. Here's a quick guide to some common sounds:
- Squeal: Could be a loose or worn belt or brake system issue.
- Click: Perhaps a stuck valve lifter or low engine oil, brake or CV axle issue, or something in your tire.
- Screech: Maybe a problem with your brake, wheel bearing, or drivetrain.
- Rumble: Often indicates worn drive-line components.
- Ping: Usually the result of using lower octane gas than recommended.
- Heavy Knocking: Might be worn crankshaft or connecting rod bearings.
- Clunk: Possibly a loose shock absorber, suspension component, exhaust pipe, or motor mount.
Feels Like Trouble?
Hard handling, a rough ride, and vibrations can all indicate trouble brewing. Pay attention to:
- Steering: Misaligned wheels or worn steering components can make steering difficult and cause noise over different surfaces.
- Pulling: The tendency to steer left or right could be due to under-inflated tires, a misaligned front end, or failed brake components.
- Ride & Handling: Worn shock absorbers, suspension components, or improper tire inflation can affect cornering. A vehicle that bounces twice or more when pushed down hard at each wheel might need new shocks.
- Springs usually last a lifetime unless one corner of the vehicle is lower than the others. Overloading can damage springs.
- Unbalanced tires cause vibration and may prematurely wear steering and suspension components.
