Diagnose car problems if bought first car and know nothing about cars Lots of people are understandably worried about getting ripped off mechanics are pretty good at detecting when a customer doesn't know anything about cars. To avoid this, it's a good idea to narrow down the possibilities of what's going on inside your car. Your sense of sight, hearing, touch, and smell are the only tools you'll need. A few sight checks can help ensure that important parts of your car are working as they should be. Here is what to look for: 1. Warning lights: The warning lights on your dashboard are the most obvious starting point. Yet the most common, the Check Engine light, can be utterly confusing because it can cover problems ranging widely in severity. Others, like the engine temperature light, tire pressure light, or oil light are more straightforward to decipher. Regardless of what lights up, never ignore it. Delaying a diagnosis and repair could lead to even bigger problems down the road.

2. Fluid puddles: Whether its brake fluid, steering fluid, coolant, or oil, leaks should be fixed as soon as possible; whenever you pull out of a parking spot, keep an eye out for drips or puddles. 3. Clunking or creaking noise:

If a suspension strut or shock is worn out, it can clunk when force is placed upon it, especially when driving over a bump. Ball joints and bushings require grease to stay lubricated and moving smoothly. If the grease dries out, it can creak like an old staircase. 4. Grinding Noise: Grinding is often heard when there's an issue with gears meshing together. Your transmission won't work well if it has worn out gears or if the fluid is low, so if you hear a grinding noise along with rough shifting, you have an idea where to look. Bad brake rotors can also make a grinding noise, but if they're in good shape it could be that some debris is caught in between the pad and rotor. 5. Vibration: First up, check your wheels and tires. It could be that they're misaligned or out of balance, reducing your handling and fuel economy while increasing tire wear. A lug nut could be loose, too. Worn mounts won't hold the engine or transmission tight against the frame, leading to vibrations.

6. Smoke or burning smell: If you smell burning in your car diagnose it immediately. If you notice it when you're braking, it's probably that you're braking too hard or for too long, causing the brakes to overheat. You can down shift a few gears to slow your car without the brakes. A worn clutch in a manual transmission vehicle can also produce a smoky smell.
