A vehicle is often on the verge of experiencing a breakdown when it suddenly makes one or more repetitive noises in spots that never had sounds before or normal sounds become louder. The following three categories of sounds require immediate attention:
Under the hood, rattling often indicates that the water pump might fail at any moment. Under the car, this sound usually indicates a loose or dropped exhaust pipe.
A grinding noise near a wheel when braking or turning might indicate worn or damaged brake pads or a bad worn wheel bearing. Another possible cause of grinding is a cracked CV joint boot that allows road debris to enter the joint.
When the engine suddenly sounds loud inside the vehicle, then there might be one or more cracks in the manifold. Loud sounds from under the car or near the tailpipe can indicate an exhaust leak or muffler problem.
