Frequent Questions About Leak & Noise Diagnosis

My car is leaking fluid, can you tell me what’s wrong?

A: The first step is figuring out what fluid is leaking and where from. That will tell us a lot. It’s hard to tell what fluid is leaking because there are no consistent colors anymore– fluids can almost literally be any color. It could be anything from your A/C draining water to a more serious leak.

I have a noise coming from my car– what is it?

A: Depending on where you are– inside the car, outside, or even in different parts of the car– noises can sound different and mean different things. The first step is determining what the noise is (scraping/grinding/knocking/ticking/etc.), where it’s coming from, and how often it’s happening. Or you can skip the guessing game – we have special equipment we can attach to the equipment while driving it to test your vehicle.

Can you diagnose a noise over the phone?

A: No (although lord knows we’ve tried…)
