Is Your Luxury Vehicle Making an unfamiliar noise? These tips can help you!

Luxury vehicles like Mercedes Benz, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, Audi, Volkswagen, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Maserati, Volvo, Land Rover, and Saab’s are expensive. If your car sounds different than normal, it might mean there is a problem. Don’t let the problem fester because it could worsen into a much more expensive repair. If your vehicle has these sounds, give our Las Vegas shop a call today and let us check it out. All of our mechanics are ASE certified and we are very reasonably priced:

  1. A clunking or thumping noise can mean a defective universal joint, prop shaft or rear differential. Come in and let us take a look at that!
  2. Heavy knocking or pounding from the engine/drive train can mean worn crankshaft bearings, bad connecting rods or loose bolts in the automatic gearbox torque converter.
  3. Pinking or pinging can mean the fuel you are using is too low quality for your engine. This can be remedied easily by switching to a higher-octane fuel or having the ignition timing checked.
  4. Metallic screeching or scraping can be a sign of worn brake pads.
  5. Squealing can mean a loose fan belt or loose fan/air-conditioning compressor belt.
  6. Thudding or thumping can mean a loose pulley or loose exhaust pipe.
  7. A low-pitched rumble can mean wheel-bearing wear.
  8. A ticking sound that increases in speed as the engine is revved can mean non-lubricated tappets due to low or dirty oil.
  9. Whining can mean differential or transmission wear.
