Question Asked: Car won't start, oil leaking
January 01, 2011, 11:48 AM
My Volvo has been driving fine, but suddenly seemed to have a dead battery yesterday, after being in a restaurant for a few hours. We jumped the battery with no problems, but by the time we had driven home, about 10 miles, smoke was pouring out of the engine. It appears that oil has spewed all over the engine, but we cannot determine where the leak is. The car will not start again. As it is New Years day, I have been unable to contact my usual repair people, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what's happening here. Thank you.
Question Asked: "Knocking noise"

I'm hearing a knocking noise, which seems to be coming from the front right area of my car. Just had a new timing belt and water pump installed. Also front right engine mounts were replaced. Any idea what is causing this. Otherwise drives great.
