Frequently Asked Questions

In everyday driving, you get used to what your car sounds like when it’s running properly. So when you hear a noise that’s unusual – a whine, creak, or squeal, for example – consider it an alert that something has changed. By paying attention to those sounds, you can often catch a minor problem before it becomes a major one. So turn down the radio and listen for these:

Squealing Brakes

Several things can cause this. If you hear squealing only during braking, especially light braking, it’s probably caused by a vibration at the brake pads. Squealing doesn’t affect your braking performance and, while it’s annoying,

If you hear a similar high-pitched squeal from the brakes while the car is moving but it stops when you step on the brake pedal, it can be a sign that your brake pads have worn down and need changing soon. It is a normal warning sound, because most of today’s cars have a soft-metal tab on the brake pads that contacts the brake rotor when the pads have worn to a certain point.

What To Do

Bring it into Mike’s Auto Repair Jupiter and have them inspect the brakes. In the case of the squeal during braking, we may be able to apply a lubricant to quiet the vibration.

Squeals under the hood
If you hear this while revving the engine or when first starting it while cold, the noise is often due to a slipping drive belt. The belt could need adjusting or it could be glazed (the sides look shiny), which means it requires replacement.

What To Do

Come on into Mike’s Auto Repair in Jupiter, Florida to take a look over the drive belts and replace them if necessary.

Light rattling in the engine
This might be pinging, which can sound like tiny marbles bouncing around inside the engine, and usually occurs while accelerating or climbing ab incline. It’s often due to using gas with too low an octane rating and can begin occurring in older engines because of carbon buildup. Severe pinging can damage the engine. Engine overheating can also cause pinging, which can indicate a serious problem.

What To Do

Check your coolant temperature gauge. If the temperature is normal, try using premium gasoline. If that doesn’t correct the pinging, have the car checked by Mike’s Auto Repair Jupiter. If the temperature is high, stop driving and check the coolant level, but don’t add water until the engine has cooled. Then have the cooling system inspected by Mike’s Auto Repair Jupiter.

Rhythmic thumping
If the noise increases and decreases with the speed of the car, it’s probably a tire problem, such as torn rubber in the tread, a bubble in the sidewall, or a flat spot. If so, you’ll often feel a vibration through the steering wheel as well.

What To Do

Have the tires inspected as soon as possible. Torn rubber or a bubble could lead to a blowout, so get new tires. A flat spot is annoying but not serious. Mike’s Auto Repair Jupiter can provide you some new tires at a great price.

Hissing beneath the hood
It’s most likely a vacuum leak, caused by a cracked or disconnected vacuum hose. Your engine could also be running or idling rough and the “check engine” light could be on.

What To Do

If it’s a disconnected hose, you may be able to reconnect it yourself. Or take the car to you local mechanic – Mike’s Auto Repair Jupiter.

How Do I Know It’s Time to Replace My Head Gasket?

The head gasket seals the gap between the cylinder head and engine block. When it fails, that allows coolant to leak inside the combustion chambers. A leaky head gasket can also allow coolant to seep out near the exhaust manifold, causing the engine to run hotter. A... read more
