Answers from the Automotive Experts

Audra Fordin, Owner at Great Bear Auto Shop Hmmmm, various shops and all different answers? At this point in time, I think you need to rely on your intuition and really pay attention to where the sound is coming from and when it is happening. Once you do that, go back to the shop you felt most comfortable at, and have them road test the car with you so they can hear what you are hearing. Mechanically yours, Audra

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Provi, Unfortunately it's hard to diagnose a noise without hearing it. I would suggest that you drive with the technician and point out the noise you're hearing. It could be something as simple as a brake backing plate rubbing, which can be bent back out. Lori Johnson
