hello - are any warning lights on?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
None. I close the hood with the battery cover on top of the exhaust manifold. I have never had any issues with this car. Wonder if I screwed something when I close hood
Auto Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 7 months ago

was it positioned in such a way that it prevented the hood from closing and would have put a lot of force onto the manifold?

Think so
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I think this is still the stock battery so I’ll be changing that cause now it won’t even turn over. Just clicking. Figures this happens when it minus 30
Auto Mechanic: Steve, Automotive Expert replied 7 months ago

Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

the clicking is a weak battery, for sure

as for the rough running, it is likely that an air leak has been created or perhaps a sensor or wiring disturbed. I would suggest having the exhaust system checked over and the live data monitored from the vehicle to see if all sensors are returning normal values or not as a next step

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
