3 Common Problems a Used Auto Might Experience

3 Common Problems a Used Auto Might Experience

Like all the rest of us, you've lived through several crisis years and know how difficult these economic times are, and as a result, you’re probably struggling along with a used vehicle. You never know what you’re going to get – it could run with fewer flaws than a newer vehicle, or it could be worse. If you’re hearing unusual sounds or are experiencing other peculiar issues, you might be wondering whether it’s worth limping along with the problems, or getting them fixed. Here are some problems your used auto might be experiencing right now:

1. Bad wheel bearing. If you hear a humming or whirring sound coming from the front your vehicle, then you probably have a bad wheel bearing. The noise becomes more prominent whenever you speed up, but also when you turn the steering wheel to the left or right.

2. A damaged exhaust system. This is one of the easiest problems to diagnose. When you have a hole in your exhaust pipe, your car suddenly becomes loud – really loud. You might also hear a clunking or scraping noise, which means its dragging on the ground.

3. Dead battery or bad alternator. This one’s fairly easy to detect too. You turn the key and nothing happens. In a used vehicle, you can typically expect this to be a dead battery at first. But, it could also be a bad alternator, which is responsible for charging the battery. If you have noticed your “Service Engine Soon” light flickering on and off, this either indicates a bad LED light or a bad alternator.

These are some common issues you could experience if you own a used vehicle.
