Clear communication with the car mechanic is beneficial in finding out and fixing the problem. So before heading to the car shop, write down all the strange things you notice with your vehicle, such as the smell, sound, including the time, location and how often they occur. It is also helpful to inform the mechanic if any repairs were made to the car recently because there is a possibility that the problem may be connected to the previous repair. You can always check online for the possible questions that mechanics might ask you when you arrive at their shop.
