Listen to the Noise | Brakes, Tires, Mufflers

That noise could be telling you that you need a New Orleans car repair shop.

Sometimes a two-day weekend just isn’t long enough. Especially in mid-summer when nature is calling. You’re seriously considering taking one (or more) mental health days to drive over to Gulfport and flop on the beach. Your hesitation is caused less by work issues than the noises your car is making. They’re definitely NOT music to your ears.

It can be hard for a driver to sort through all the various squeaks, squawks and growls a car can make to decide whether you need to consult a New Orleans car repair shop as soon as possible or if it can wait or even be ignored. Of course, the best rule of thumb is to get any suspicious noise checked out if you’re not sure of the origin. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Angie’s List notes five sounds that “signal your car needs auto repairs”:

Squealing or screeching when you brake.” You could need new brake pads, rotor resurfacing or replacement. “Installing new brake pads, and resurfacing or replacing the brake rotors if necessary, will help ensure you’ll be able to stop safely and quietly without causing further damage to your vehicle,” Angie’s List says.

Grinding when braking” could indicate that your car needs new brake pads, calipers and rotors.

Sputtering, rumbling or rattling exhaust noises from under the car” may signal your car needs exhaust system repairs, exhaust component replacement, like a muffler or catalytic converter.

Chirping or squealing noise from under the hood” could mean your drive belt needs replacing.

Humming, growling or roaring noise when driving down the road” may mean you need new tires or new wheel bearings.
