Cars of all kinds are exposed to many malfunctions; such problems are usually accompanied by some warning signs that indicate problems in the car. The sounds emanating from the car are among the most significant signs that attention must be taken to. and the related faults should be fixed quickly in order to avoid possible accidents.
Five main areas of the car that are usually the source of these strange sounds. But what are those areas?? And what are those sounds? And how can it be identified and dealt with?
All these questions are what we are going to answer in this article.
Where do these sounds come from?!
- Brake sounds:
- Brake squeaking sound:
When pressing on the brakes, you may hear a slight friction sound from your tires . This sound is usually not a major cause for concern, as it does not indicate that the brakes are worn out. It is possible that a simple cleaning process like adding lubricating oil to the appropriate brakes, or modifying a part of the brake parts can help get rid of such sound.
- Brake creaking sound:
A loud metal-to-metal rubbing sound is heard when the brakes are applied, like the sound of harsh grinding. In this case you should check the brakes immediately!
Metal contact is not the ideal situation for a safe car brake system. Driving with worn brake pads is extremely dangerous! Failure or delay of the brake system could cause serious accidents.
- Steering wheel sounds:
- A moan similar to a yawn when turning the steering wheel:
When you turn the steering wheel, a high-pitched groan and groan sound is heard. There is something in your steering wheel system that is causing stiffness and friction. This can be a serious problem if the steering wheel system is not checked early, and you may lose control of your car eventually!
- A metal to metal friction sound is heared while the wheel is spinning:
A squeaking noise is made when the wheels are spinning, a sound similar to a tin or a tin. You’ll usually notice these sounds coming from the front of the car, in the middle near the steering column, and all the way to the wheels.
Similar to the sound of a yawn, this is a sign of a problem within the steering system. However, this sound could be an indication that the power steering oil level is low.
Don’t neglect it! If this problem persists and these strange sounds persist, just visit your nearest mechanic. You may have a punctured, damaged, cracked, or broken steering wheel oil pump that is causing an oil leak.
- Sounds from the engine:
- A creaking “whistling” sound under the hood:
A high-pitched “whistling” sound, similar to the sound of birds chirping, that comes when a cold car engine is started. Usually this indicates a defective serpentine belt, such as slipping, cracking, or eroding the belt running over the pulley creating a characteristic squeak.
The serpentine belt plays a key role in operating many of the major mechanical components and systems of your vehicle.
So when you hear this sound, go ahead to the nearest workshop.
- crackling sound from car engine:
There is a continuous knocking sound coming out of the engine, this sound is a normal thing that occurs when the appropriate grade of gasoline for your car is not adhered to, and this leads to damage to the spark plug, which makes the engine pistons move irregularly, which creates this sound.
If you are using the correct fuel grade and the sound still persists, have it checked immediately. A minor problem like this could be the start of engine damage if not cured in time.
- Engine popping sound:
The popping sound from the engine usually tells you that your car needs servicing. Mostly this is due to a damaged spark plug, a blockage or a faulty fuel filter, or a low engine oil level.
Avoid this sudden sound by checking your car at the nearest auto service center.
- Sounds from the air conditioner:
- A fluttering sound when the air conditioner is turned on
When the air conditioner is turned on, it makes a fluttering sound similar to the sound of a fish flapping out of the water. This is usually caused by wear, damage, or wear of the “rubber band around the compressor” ventilation belt.
A broken ventilator flap belt is not a serious safety issue because it only affects the airflow.
- Exhaust sounds:
- A roaring sound from the exhaust
You may hear a roar from under the car, which is not usual. However, this growling sound will increase as the vehicle speed increases. And the most likely reason may be a leak or a break in the exhaust system.
The danger of exhaust leakage lies in the leakage of toxic carbon monoxide gas, which may reach the passenger compartment, and this affects the attention and concentration of passengers and the driver while driving.
Do not ignore this problem and have the exhaust checked immediately at the nearest workshop!
