Question Asked: Why wont my car start??
March 22, 2012, 05:01 PM
When I first bought the car it would click when I tried to turn it over, but it was almost always start after the first try. That was during the first month that I bought it. I asked the dealers about it bc there were heated O2 sensors that they replaced. This is the second month, and then it starter to happen more often. I would have to turn it over 6-10 times before it would start. There is also a rattling sound underneath my car. On Friday, it would not start at all. I replaced the main fuse and battery and it started, however when I try to crank it now, it won’t start. When I hit it with a hammer, I can get it started after about 3-6 turns. It’ll crank up with this awful rattling noise and die. Also, the dash lights flash on and off after bout 5-10 secs. Starter? Solenoid? ?? Thanks!
Question Asked: There is a rattling sound under my car. Is it the exhaust?

I was turning into a driveway at night and I couldn't see how rough it was. I bumped the underside of my car kind of hard. There was a rattling noise but it wasn't that bad. Now it rattles at speeds below 25 and when the engine is idle. I took it to Firestone and was told the exhaust cannister is dented so that the coal-like substance in the exhaust cannister is loose. However, no one actually tested it out. Could this be what it is? How much? What damage could it do- or what is the immediacy of getting this fixed? Thanks so much!
