VIDEO: 8 Noises that Drivers Shouldn't Ignore

Like a dripping faucet in a house, a repetitive noise in a vehicle can become a major annoyance over time. Some noises, however, can help alert an astute driver to underlying problems that need to be resolved. Responding to these sounds quickly can promote safety and save money.

For example, a squealing noise during acceleration might be a sign that a drive belt is loose or slipping. Grinding while braking might signal that the brake pads or wheel bearings need to be replaced.

According to AAA, there are eight vehicle noises that drivers should never ignore: squealing, grinding, rattling, popping, hissing, clicking, roaring and tapping.
