What could be causing that unusual noise in you car in Uganda?

Engine issues. Noises coming from your engine can sometimes be hard to notice given the regular noise produced by the engine. There are a lot of different reasons why your engine might be pro­ducing unusual noise and a lot of them could indicate serious me­chanical problems. So if you notice any unusual noise coming from under the hood make sure to have your car checked out as soon as possible.

Steering system. The steering system can produce a few different noises, with the most common ones being clicks or screeches. Screeches are usually only heard on power steering systems and you should have the belt checked out as it is probably slipping. The clicks can mean a few different things ranging from a low level of power steering fluid to worn-out bearings in the steering column.

The brakes. A grinding sound you hear coming from the brakes usually means that your brake pads or shoes need replacing. Also, humming sounds usually indicate excessive tyre wear.

Clutch problems. Another very common problem is squeaking noises when changing gears and that could indicate that you need to fill up the transmission fluid. However, grinding sounds produced by changing gears could indicate a problem with your clutch; most likely it's too worn and it has to be replaced.

Remember to always properly maintain your car and if you hear any unusual noise take your car to a mechanic as soon as possible.
