Customer Question

We have a 2009 ES Lancer, it is the base model and a manual. Recently the check oil light came on and the car started to make a rattling / knocking noise on idle, which gets very loud with acceleration. We are not driving the car. I it possible the oil pump has failed or needs replacing?

likely its the oil pump..but the crank and bearings need to be checked when its apart..low oil pressure can damage the internals quickly
