2020 Fiat 500L

One of the first indicators that the vehicles need servicing is when any unusual noise arises. This noise may come from different parts, which may include the brakes and the engine. If your car is making strange sounds, below is a list of clues that may help you identify the underlying problems.

Squeaky Brakes

The car brakes are usually subjected to significant amounts of stress. The brakes will typically make noise simply because there are loose or worn parts that may need replacement. If you hear squeaking sounds coming from the brakes, this might indicate that the brake parts, like the brake pads, are wearing thin. A mechanic is the right person to correct the squeaky sounds by lubricating them and replacing the worn parts.

Engine Rattling

The sound of a rattling engine is the result of premature ignition. This problem is caused by improper engine timing, engine overheating, and improper fuel octane. Some of these significant problems emanate from incorrect mixing of fuel and air inside the engine cylinder, contributing to early ignition. The same issue can also add to the damage of various parts, including valves, connecting rods, and pistons.

Engine Clicking

Various engine clicking voices from the engine are an indication that oil levels are low. Checking oil levels is easy. You are required to check the oil dipstick for that. If adding oil doesn't solve the entire problem, consider checking the valve train for damaged parts.

Knocking Under the Hood

When you hear a knocking sound under the hood, you may need to visit our service center urgently. The issue, if not looked at, may result in a big mess in the future. One of the problems herein could be an issue with pistons, valves, connecting rods, and other components.

Engine Squealing

A squealing engine is because of loose accessory belts that operate components such as the alternator, air conditioners compressors, and the power steering pump. For the newer vehicles, the cause of this type of sound is the serpentine belt being misaligned, too loose or too tight.
