Is There Something Wrong with My Car?

When it comes to owning your own car, we understand that the slightest things can have us paranoid about our cars. It is hard to tell whether your vehicle needs repairs or not. What is concerning and what isn’t? If something is feeling off about your car, the best thing to do to be sure is by taking it to an auto repair shop for an inspection and diagnosis.


Much like when you aren’t feeling well, you go to a doctor to figure out what’s wrong – the same goes for your car. Being cautious will end up saving you money in the long run and will prevent more problems from potentially worsening. At Monkey Wrenches, we have an expert team with state-of-the-art equipment who can accurately diagnose and repair any issue.


Your vehicle will typically alert you something is wrong with an unusual feeling, sound, or even smell. Below are some examples:

  • Bumpy or rough ride
  • Shaking or stiff steering wheel 
  • Vibrating vehicle
  • Soft brake pedals

Odd Noises

  • Clunking noises
  • Screeching when braking

Visible Warning Signs
