Have you ever noticed concerning sounds while driving? Unusual sounds that a healthy, well-serviced car should not be making under normal conditions?


If so, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly where the sound is coming from or what may be causing it. 


At Haldeman Lincoln in Allentown, we want to provide you with all the information you need to better understand what’s going on with your ride. Here are three odd sounds your car may be making and what they could signify. 

Squealing Noise

Are you hearing a squealing noise when you turn the steering wheel? The most likely cause of this strange noise is low power steering fluid. 


To make your vehicle easier to turn, your power steering system relies on a hydraulic setup of pressurized fluid. If your levels of this fluid drop, you may begin to experience an easily identified squealing noise before further performance issues set in.


A simple fluid top-off could be just the fix, but if you are still experiencing issues afterward, it’s best to consult a professional.

Grinding Noise 

Have you been noticing an unusual grinding noise when you apply pressure to your brakes? If so, it most likely means that your brake pads have worn down to the nub.


Severely worn brakes are incredibly unsafe to continue driving on, so it’s of the utmost importance that you schedule a visit with the factory-certified mechanics at Haldeman Lincoln in Allentown as soon as possible.


We’ll be sure to replace any necessary elements of your brake system according to manufacturer recommendations.

Thudding Noise

If you’ve been hearing a repetitive thudding or slapping noise when you drive, this could be a sign that there is a problem with your tires or suspension system. This issue should always be addressed sooner rather than later.


To remedy this problem, your luxury Lincoln vehicle may require tire service, such as a rotation or an alignment, or suspension repair.
