Multiple news agencies have reported that car owners should always beware of the risks associated with failing to act quickly once they learn of an issue with their car’s engine.

To identify exactly what some issues can be linked to, experts came up with a full list of potential problems and what they are usually associated with. According to experts, if your car is making a strange humming or groaning sound, your tires may be wearing out. To prevent any serious issues, experts urge you to act fast and visit a mechanic as soon as possible. Growling noises could be linked to a defective front wheel bearing. If the noise comes from the wheel every time you turn, act promptly.

Whining and creaking could also be linked to a serious issue. When you hear these noises when backing up or performing a turn, it could mean that there’s a problem with the vehicle’s ball joint. Griding could mean that two pieces of metal associated with the brakes or the suspension are touching when they aren’t supposed to be touching. The issue could also be linked to the vehicle’s powertrain. Act quickly and have the vehicle checked as soon as possible to avoid a potential accident.

Studies show that about 7 percent of all accidents are linked to vehicle or equipment failure. Acting promptly and having the problem checked could save your life.
