I recently had my brakes and rotor replaced and the first time I drove my car after the new brakes were installed, I had an unusual new noise when driving my car.
At first the noise only occurred when I was slowing or coasting to a stop. The noise was a chunk/thump -like sound and seemed to be rotational. KaaaLunk. KaaLunk. KaaLunk.
I called my mechanic and he was not concerned, but I did schedule an appointment to have the car looked at/repaired. In the meantime, the noise has gotten worse. I have limited my driving since receiving the new brakes and a new noise, but did freeway driving this weekend. Each time I decelerated, it sounded as if I had a mini jackhammer under the hood. I am no longer driving for fear that driving may cause more damage to my car or leave me stranded in one hundred plus degree temperatures. Do you have a good idea what is causing this to occur?
have the same problem?
