Motor or Engine Noise?

Motor or Engine Noise?

As long as I’ve been around vehicle repair it always strikes me as curious to see how things come in waves. A particular brand vehicle might have electrical problems for a year. Another will have brake related problems. Maybe we get a bunch of window repairs on all cars… This year we’ve seen six cases of motor or engine noise. Not unusual in an auto repair shop, but the nature of the engine noise I’m referring to is a clacking or knocking. It’s sometimes slight, sometimes more pronounced, and most of the people bringing this to us are new customers. More interesting is the actual source of the engine noise. Every case of that mysterious noise that we have seen is from a LACK OF MOTOR OIL in the engine! Holy smokes! Check Your Oil We all get busy, but I implore everyone to please check their own oil, or have someone else do so, at appropriate ... read more
