3 Signs Your Car Needs Service

Your car is a sophisticated machine, but sometimes, when something is going wrong, it won’t activate the “check engine” or other dashboard warning lights. If your car sends you any of the following signs, it is time to make a car maintenance appointment at the service department at Tropical Ford.

Weird noises

Your vehicle produces a bevy of sounds. You know what noises are normal and what are not. If you hear strange, unfamiliar sounds such as banging, rattling, grinding, squealing or anything that does not fall into the “normal” spectrum of your car, including clicking, it’s time to head to the service bay at Tropical Ford where our technicians can discover the source of these troubling noises.

Unpleasant aromas

If you notice an unpleasant stench wafting from your vehicle, and you can’t blame it on the forgotten fast food sack in the back, something is wrong with your car. Your air conditioning system may be failing if you smell mildew. The catalytic converter is in serious decline if you smell rotten eggs, and your health and safety are at risk if your cabin smells like exhaust.

Troubled shifting

Your transmission needs attention if your car is lacking its regular get-up-and-go quality when you are shifting gears or if it is outright stalling.

For all your car maintenance needs, contact the service department at Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida.
