Idaho Falls Auto Repair
Reliable & Timely Repairs
To Get Your Car Back On The Road!
Not Sure What’s Wrong? Here Are Some Possible Answers
- High-pitched squealing when you brake – It sounds terrifying because it’s supposed to. Many brake pads come with brake pad indicators, small devices that rub against your rotor when your brake pads start to wear down too much.
- Squealing under the hood – It could be a loose or worn down serpentine belt, which transports power to various auto components – the alternator, A/C, power steering pump, and water pump.
- A coin rattling around in a clothes dryer – If you hear this while moving at low speed only for it to go away once you hit higher speed, it could be a loose lug nut inside your hub cap.
- “Rur rur ur” (grumpy cat sound) – This indicates your battery is having trouble powering your engine. Maybe it’s your battery’s time to die, maybe it’s running out of juice, maybe it just needs a jump.
- Rumbling & roaring from the rear of your truck – Usually emitting from under the driver’s seat, this sound indicates a crack or leak in the exhaust system’s manifold (meaning all of the noise your engine makes is entering the vehicle).
- Squeaking or groaning sounds when you turn the wheel – This indicates a problem with your power-steering system.
- Flapping sound when you run the A/C – This is typically caused by a ventilation flap having become misaligned, worn down, or loose – hence, it starts to flap.
- Sweet – Usually the result of antifreeze leaking from your cooling system.
- Sulfuric (rotten eggs) – It may be that the catalytic converter has gone bad.
- Electric (burnt toast) – This is often the result of overheating components or short circuits in the electrical system.
- Rubber – This is most likely a problem with a belt – it could have either slipped or is getting chewed up by a pulley.
- Musty – This is likely mold in your A/C system, which is more common in older vehicles due to the A/C evaporator collecting moisture over time.
- Gas – Smelling gas after your engine warms up could mean you have a loose gas cap or there’s a leak or clog in the evaporative emissions control system (this system contains and recycles fuel vapors).

Here’s What You Should Look For In An Auto Mechanic
Professional Customer Service
Good mechanics know how to listen, even if it means reading between the lines when someone is explaining the problem to them.
