The new Old Car Owner
makes the mistake of investigating these noises.
This is a grievous error and will often frighten the car into malfunction
. Never investigate clicking noises, it just riles up the gods of automobile entropy
. What used to be a clicking noise suddenly turns into an oily mess
that costs $700 to replace. If the noise bothers you, simply ignore it
. The noise will eventually turn into a more manageable and less irritating cloud of white smoke. Contrary to popular belief smoke is a good thing. Smoke means your car is working. When it stops making smoke, it will soon stop moving.
I encountered such a clickety noise the other day in my beloved Gregor
. To be fair the noise started after I clipped a curb and may have been my fault. Despite my experience I made the mistake of investigating and found a horrible oily mess
. My truck immediately stopped working properly and expensive repairs were necessary.
