With busy schedules, many vehicle owners may have a hard time fitting in time to take care of regular auto repair services for their vehicles, such as oil changes or tire rotation. It has been reported by mechanics that they see many cars brought in to their auto repair shops that may not have been serviced at the appropriate intervals. When you think of all the cars driving toward you on the road, that is a scary thought.

Because your vehicle is one of the biggest investments you will make, don’t ignore these seven signs of needed auto repair services:

  • Dashboard warning lights. Your car's on-board diagnostic system is essential to keeping your vehicle operating efficiently, indicated by flashing or blinking warning lights on the instrument panel.
  • Oil spots under the car. Dark brown oil spots on your garage floor or driveway indicate your vehicle is leaking motor oil. The problem could be as minor as an oil filter or drain plug not secured tightly or as major as a compromised gasket in the engine.
  • Greenish fluid under the car. Your car is leaking radiator fluid, either from a bad fitting on a hose that leads to or from the main radiator body or a cracked radiator.
  • Noisy Brakes. High-pitched squealing, squeaking, or metal-on-metal grinding sounds indicate that brake pads, rotors, calipers or discs have become worn out.
  • Louder than usual rumbling or sputtering. These sounds usually indicate a problem with the exhaust system, such as a small hole or disconnected pipe or something more serious such as a bad muffler or catalytic converter.
  • Chirping or screeching from under the hood. Drive belts, also known as serpentine belts, direct engine power to accessory systems like the power steering or AC. These belts become frayed or brittle or glazed as they wear, which can then cause a chirping or screeching sound, especially on start-up.
  • Humming, growling or roaring when driving. Your tires may be worn or deformed, or you could have a bad wheel bearing.

Remember: Ignoring needed auto repair services can quickly become bigger and more costly repairs.
