I recently hit a pot hole with my front tire. It was a bad one that jolted the whole car, but small enough that I didn't even see it until it was over. I didn't notice anything until I drove miles on the freeway and started going down old streets with various bumps. Now, every time I go over any type of bump, I hear a rattling noise that vibrates for a very short amount of time right after the initial sound. Not thumping and not deep. I am afraid to drive it, but hoping it is something simple. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time and offerings!

FYI, sounds sort of like marbles or something rattling around and does not happen until I hit any kind of uneven roadway or little bump/crack in the road.


Inspect the front end parts, somethings loose or possibly bent, IF you can't have this checked.

Thank you. I can't afford to go in right now for that, but hoping it doesn't cost much to have them just lift it up and look at it. I will do this as soon as I am able.


I am new in the city I live in as well, and hope I can find an honest mechanic!


Finding an honest mechanic is one of the most difficult things to do, but, once you find that person stick with them. They will know your car and you'll get better service. Ask your friends for a referral just as you would for any other professional services.
