  1. If there is any steam, fluids, smells or smoke coming from your car, other than the normal cold morning steam from the tail pipe, catalytic converter smell or diesel engine smell, someone with repair experience or a professional mechanic should check the car. Any problems found should be repaired as soon as possible.

  2. Any strange noises such as hissing, clunking, squealing, clicking or whirring coming from the front, rear or from the engine should be investigated and repaired by a mechanic if it is not something you can do yourself.

  3. Most windshield wiper problems are due to a burnt fuse or worn out wiper blades. If you find the problem is elsewhere, you should have a mechanic repair it before it rains again.

  4. If you have lights, headlights high and low beam, turn signals, tail lights, emergency flashers etc., that don't work or stay on all the time the first thing to do is check the fuse and bulbs. Other than that the problem may be bad wiring or bad switches. Have a mechanic look at it and repair the problem.
