Mechanic:Hi, I'm the mechanic. What can I do for you?
Amy:My car is making a very weird noise. It sounds like this: gulug, gulug, gulug...
艾米：我的汽车老是发出很奇怪的噪音 。听起来就像：gulug, gulug, gulug...
Mechanic:Hm, that doesn't sound good. Where is it coming from?
Amy:I'm not sure. When I'm in the car, it sounds like it's coming from the engine, but when I get out of the car, it sounds like it's coming from directly under the trunk, maybe the muffler?
Mechanic:That's not a noise a muffler would make. Let me take a look. Can you start the car and pop the hood?
机修工：消音器不会发出这样的声音 。我来检查检查 。你能发动汽车，打开引擎盖吗？
Mechanic:Well, I don't hear the sound right now, but your battery needs replacing, you have a coolant leak, your carburetor needs adjusting, and your spark plugs are shot. I need to look under the car.
机修工：不过，现在我听不到噪音了 。你的电池需要更换，冷却剂存在泄漏，化油器也需要重新调整 。还有火花塞太短 。我要到车底检查 。
Amy:Okay, go ahead.
Mechanic:Your brake pads need replacing and your tires need balancing.
Amy:But are any of those problems causing that horrible noise?
Mechanic:I don't know. I don't hear the noise right now, so it's hard to tell. But that's all work you need to have done on this car anyway for it to run right. It's only a matter of time before your car stops working if you don't take care of those problems.
机修工：我不知道 。我现在没有听到噪音，所以不敢妄作论断 。总之为了安全起见，你还是应该把车的毛病都解决了 。如果你不重视这些毛病，车子抛锚是迟早的事 。
Amy:I come in with one problem and you find 10 others. I guess you should go ahead. What else can I do?
艾米：我来这是让你修理噪音的毛病，你却给我找出10种其它毛病 。我想你还是继续吧 。不然我还能怎么样？
Mechanic:Um, buy a bus pass?
