Customer Question
It hesitates to start...

It hesitates to start purchased a new battery -car started with a jump but when I drive its like a knocking the gets loud as I accelerated a mechanic told me sounds as if the rod is about to go out in motor he also told me car only starts with a jump because a coil needs to be replaced due to it getting to hot to keep running

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Idk lol that's what im asking just started after the car cut off

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2005 chevy equinox

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Equinox yourself? What have you tried so far?

No- ive only replaced the battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No lights come on the dash board -for ex :(check engine light)

Hello, I hope you are doing great today. My name is***** am a GM master technician and would be happy to assist you with this.

Have you checked the oil recently? Make sure that it is not low.

If it does have a coil that is that bad then it is possible it is misfiring and causing a spark knock, I have seen those cause noises similar to thrown rod. If the oil level looks good I would recommend replacing the bad coil and then retesting the system
