Car is making an odd or strange noise

If your vehicle is making odd noises My Auto Shop can get it sorted with a General Inspection. Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

How a General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When your vehicle is making odd noises its often as a result of a:

  • Belt and pulley is slipping
  • Hoses are loose
  • Internal engine parts are worn or damaged
  • Brakes and wheels are misaligned or worn
  • Exhaust system rattles against the chassis
  • Suspension system is damaged
  • Aerodynamic interference
  • Tyres are worn or flat

Popular services linked to a General Inspection:

Wiper Motor Replacement

When it’s raining and you’re driving, you want to be able to clear the windscreen of any water. If your wiper motor is broken or malfunctioning, it can lead to a potentially hazardous situation.

Windscreen Chip Repair

A chip or crack typically arises from an impact, 9 times out of 10 caused by a stone on the road flicked up by the vehicle travelling in front. Windscreen repairers have gone as far as labelling different types of chips based on the impact and damage done, such as a crater, horseshoe, star or bullseye.

Windscreen Replacement

Even though it’s staring you in the face every time you get into the car, it’s very rare you have a good look at it and appreciate the technology in a windscreen. A windscreen is generally made of 2 sheets of glass laminated together with a thin piece of plastic between them. In modern cars, the windscreen may hold even more functionality than just wind and sun protection. Display functionality, sensors and cameras are being built into windscreens to aid driving.

Headlight Bulb Replacement

The headlights are a critically important party of your car and something that should always be in perfect working condition. Unless you’re good at driving by feel alone, your headlights are what allows you to drive safely at night.
