Weird Noise and Brake question.
I just recently purchased a 2008 Mazda 3, in june of 2008. It was brand new, never any problems. Currently, I live in Dallas Texas.. So the weather has been around (30-50 degrees F). This morning, as I go return my text books for college, I had just put the Key in my ignition and turned the car on. I placed my foot on the break to change from park to Reverse and I heard a click. I kept pressing the brake to figure out where the noise was coming from, and it was right beneath the (park/drive/reverse console). I have never heard this noise before, It kind of worries me. After driving for some time, I hit a Red Light, so I put my car in park, and decided to press the break, to see what happens..and there was no sound. Throughout my driving today I did not encounter this "Click". As soon as I got home and turned off the car, I decided to Turn it back on to test it out. Sure enough, When I turned on my car and pressed the break, The click sound was there. Any Ideas what this could be? It only seems to happen right after I turn on the car and press the brake.
Also, This seems to also do with the brakes (It also started today)...
When I was pressing the brakes today, It seemed very "Thick and Sluggish". When I first reversed and hit the brake, I noticed the brakes made a deep noise.. Like a "uggh". No, It wasn't a screeching noise, it was like the brakes were needing to warm up or something. While Driving, I would break on purpose to see how the brakes were holding up, They still seemed kind of "thick" but the brakes worked as they normally do..No sound, quick response. I am sorry I cannot explain this 2nd question to you guys better, but It is somewhat hard to
I do not know if it's the weather causing this or what, It has been cold for about 2 weeks now. I Have received Ice around my car maybe 2 times in these 2 weeks. I am a Car novice, when it comes to mechanics, However my car is very new, to be having any problems whatsover.
Please help me out. I am planning on taking a 8 hr drive to visit my family for the holidays within the next 2 days.
